Senator Ishaku Elisha Cliff Abbo representing Adamawa North Senatorial District has offered a helping hand to an epileptic who fell inside fire during one of his seizures.
Mr. Abbo was driving when he saw the man whose name is Mallam Zakari Yau Dalhatu sitting by the roadside. Moved by his facial configuration, the senator asked his driver to stop the car in order to take Mallam Zakari Yau Dalhatu to the hospital
Posting the photos of Mallam Dalhatu on his Facebook Page, the Senator wrote, “I was driving out of TV Gotel in Yola Adamawa state this morning after a live television show when I saw this young man Mallam Zakari Yau Dalhatu an Indigene of Bakari Guso of Ganye Local government area Adamawa state and I told my driver to stop the car.
“He was told by someone to come to the gate of the Media House because I will definitely stop if I see him. They were right. I stopped when I saw him. He told me that he is epileptic and during one of the attacks, he fell into a fire and burnt, losing an eye.
“I asked if he is on treatment and he said NO. He said his father has no money to continue his treatment. I told him to enter my car and drove him straight to the hospital.
“I met the Chief Medical Director (CMD) Professor Auwal Mustapher who assured me that Mallam Zakari Yau can still be helped with plastic surgery. I offered to pay the bill. My new friend Mallam Zakari is currently on admission at Federal Medical Centre Yola. Please pray for him.”
