Gun victim of Ayawaso by-election shootings to have leg amputated

Doctors at the 37 Military Hospital are reportedly considering amputating the leg of one of the victims of the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election shooting.

According to a report YEN.com.gh sighted Myjoyonline.com, the right leg of Ishau Moro was wrapped in a huge white bandage with a straight shiny metal fixed beside the leg to keep it straight because the bullets scattered the bone in the leg.

The report revealed that when he was brought in, doctors told him they may have to amputate the badly damaged limb to keep him alive.
