A four-year-old boy identified as Abdullahi Umar was born without hands, but he does not allow that to stop him from writing as the little boy does so with his toes.
Kemi Filani reports that the boy resisted attempts by his parents to carry him in a wheelbarrow to beg for alms, insisting that he would go to school.
YEN.com.gh gathers that Umar got enrolled in LGEA Central School, Nasarawa, with the assistance of the headteacher, Habibat Abdullahi.
The boy, who is now in nursery one, can do tracing and other assignments with pencil using his toes.
