New Member of Parliament (MP) for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Lydia Alhassan has rubbished claims that she did not contribute money to the care-taking Ishau Yaro, a victim of assault of the January 31, 2019 by-election violence in the constituency.
Family members of the said victim publicly denied that the new MP truly donated money for the upkeep of their beloved thereby praising the NDC for footing all his medical bills.
However, according to a report by Ghanaweb.com, the MP paid GHC 5000 to the 37 Military hospital on behalf of Mr Yaro.
The receipt was dated 6th February 2019. YEN.com.gh cannot independently confirm the veracity of the receipt except to cite the part of her Facebook post where she wrote: "I made a cash deposit to take care of his medical bills".
Meanwhile, 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.
Yaro has already undergone two separate surgeries to help recover the leg and he is expected to undergo a third on Thursday, February 7 2019.
