A sick child died today, April 13, after her mother allegedly absconded with N3m donated by a well meaning individual for her surgery.
Nuhu Fulani kwajafa, the National Coordinator of Global initiative for Peace, Love and Care, GIPLC, narrated the shocking experience on social media.
The son of former NDLEA boss, who disclosed this on Facebook, said the 3-year-old girl, Ada was suffering from brain tumor and needed to undergo surgery.
A donor had paid the money into the account number of the child’s mother as he was not comfortable with NGOs.
“Last month we had a case of a 3yr old girl with a brain tumor who needed N3m for surgery. A donor insisted on paying the money to the account of the mother, stating that he’s not comfortable with NGOs,” he wrote.
“We initially wanted him to pay directly to the hospital, but that was not possible because 80% of medical materials needed for the surgery has to be bought outside the hospital. Eventually the donor credited the mother’s account, and the mother absconded with the N3m. Sadly, the child died this morning. Rest In Peace Ada.”
