Hope for a Nigerian lady
Meanwhile, YEN earlier reported that after more than 14 years, a young lady is set to do her legs bidding without needing to be aided anymore.
This is as an Imo-based philanthropist that goes by the name Dr Chin Akano decided to come to her aid by rendering financial assistance, in the sum of N100k and rallying others to support the cause.
The lady identified as Chizzy Perpetua was allegedly a victim of accidental gunshots some years ago that affected her spine badly and made her lose the use of her legs.
