The Bayelsa State government through the wife of the governor, Mrs Rachael Dickson took the financial burden of baby Oyintari’s healthcare and issued N6m cheque and other traveling documents to his parents to perform the surgery on him.
Oyintari who was 8months old at the time of the incident has been in the protective custody of Mrs Dickson and is now one year and two months old.
