Photo of a young man with unusual severe leg deformity in Kogi State

Petra Akinti Onyegbule, the Chief Press Secretary to Kogi State Governor, posted the photo and message she received from one Prince Opaluwa Okoliko Gideon. 

According to him, he spotted the young man in a village near Ugbamaka,  Olomaboro  local government of Kogi State. He was touched and wanted to know if there is anything the medical world can do to his condition.

Ahmed Attah, a Consultant Haematologist and Director of Clinical Services at Kogi State Specialist Hospital, Lokoja said he is already on the case, adding that the man is expected in the state capital where he will be attended to by an Orthopedic Surgeon. 

" I can confirm to you that the young man is being expected in Lokoja today (he was expected Monday and yesterday actually, but the Secretary to his LGA who was supposed to have brought him was held up by some emergencies). Arrangements have already been concluded with the Orthopedic Surgeon who will attend to him once he gets here. This young man is going to be given a new lease on life.
"The Kogi State Health Funds for Indigent Citizens established by Governor Bello is accessible to those who really need it. And those who need it get it irrespective of tribe or religion."
