Photo: Update on the young boy
whose eyes were removed by
ritualists in Kaduna
Remember the 3year old little boy named Abubakar
Usman whose eyes were removed by some
ritualists in Kaduna last week? Read story here.
The boy's father, Usman Isa, says doctors at the
Ahmadu Bello University have performed an
operation on the little boy. According to Isa who
spoke with Daily Trust, the doctors said the
ritualists removed everything in the boys eyes and
that there was no hope of him seeing again except
by a miracle.
“The Kaduna hospital has referred us back to
ABUTH. Doctors have conducted surgery
yesterday. From what they told us, the
perpetrators have removed everything that has to
do with the eyes, which would make fixing them
difficult. However, doctors said that they would
review the operation to see the outcome, hoping
they can fix artificial ones.”
He said the doctors said the artificial eyes would
be fixed just to fill the holes, but not for the young
boy to see. “Except if Allah performs a miracle,” he
sobbed.
Meanwhile the grandmother of little Usman,
Malama Hadiza Usman, narrated how she got to
know that her grandson's eyes had been removed
by ritualists while he was on his way to an
evening Islamiyya class.
In tears, Malama Hadiza told Daily Trust that she
would never forget the incident for the rest of her
life. “I’d given him N5 to buy sweets on his way,
on Sunday, January 24. He left the house with his
brother Umar, but on their way they were
intercepted by yet-to-be identified men who took
him to an uncompleted building and gouged his
eyes out.”
At the hospital, little Abubakar was telling those
around him to open his eyes to enable him see his
mother and grandmother. “Open my eyes, I want to
see Mama. Mama, where are you? Where’s
Grandma?” he kept wailing.
