A 16-year-old student, Fatima Suleiman, has been left with one leg after she was knocked down by a male student, Aliyu Sunusi Umar, on their graduation day when he was performing driving stunt with a car.


Fatima, a student of Khalifa International Model in Sokoto, and her friends completed their final exams last week and were jubilating outside the exam venue, exchanging contacts and signing autographs when she received a call from her mother that she was coming to pick her up.

She and her friends then went and sat outside the school premises to wait for her mother. While they were waiting, Aliyu, a student from another school, drove towards them to show off his stunt driving skill.

“I was sitting with my friends when the guy came on high speed and splashed stagnated water on us. We reported him to our school authority and he was asked to leave the area.

“But instead of heeding to their warning, he continued with his stunt driving and then lost control of the car. We tried to escape but unfortunately for me, I missed a step and fell down and the vehicle ran over one of my legs but my two friends were lucky to escape unhurt.”

“I was then brought to the Trauma Centre of Usmanu Danfodiyo University Teaching Hospital where after examination, the doctors concluded that my limb has to be amputated in order to save my life,” she said.

Fatima said her life goal is to become a medical doctor like her father, adding that the accident would not deter her from achieving her goal.

“I have been nurturing this ambition for long because my father is a medical doctor. I wrote JAMB this year and scored 230,” she said.


Meanwhile, Aliyu has been arrested by men of the Sokoto State Police Command and remanded in the state correctional facility till his next court hearing next Monday.

The wife of the Governor of Sokoto State, Hajiya Mariya Tambuwal, paid a visit to Fatima on Monday, August 22, and promised to support her in overcoming the trauma.
