A 3-year-old girl passed on after her mother absconded with the money donated for her to undergo a brain surgery.
Nuhu Fulani kwajafa, the National Coordinator of Global initiative for Peace, Love and Care, GIPLC, has taken to the social media platform, Facebook; to narrate how a sick 3-year-old girl died on Tuesday, April 13; after her mother allegedly absconded with N3m donated by a well meaning individual for her surgery.
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.
Below is how he reported the story:
“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; also 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.”
