The Senate President, Bukola Saraki on Thursday met 6 year old Boko haram victim, Ali Ahmadu.
Ahmadu was 3 years old when Boko Haram terrorists stormed Chibok and ran over him with a motorcycle. As a result of the unfortunate incident, Ali’s spinal cord was severed.
Recall that Senator Dino Melaye had attended a fund raising ceremony for medical treatment of the boy organised by The Global Initiative for Peace Love & Care
“To me, Ali is a reminder of the evils of violent extremism. He is one of the reasons why we continue to remain committed to stamping out terrorism. He will require surgery on his spinal cord.” Saraki said.
“Moving forward, my colleagues and I in the 8th Senate will continue to offer support to him and his family.
“We must all remember that we have come a long way in our fight to stamp out the insurgency that we once battled with. However, right now, there are a lot of families and people in our communities that are still bearing the brunt of extremism.
“We must also continue to pray for our men and women in uniform who fight to keep us safe.”
