Ali Ahmadu, a six-year-old victim of Boko Haram attack in Chibok, Borno State has successfully undergone a spinal cord surgery in Dubai, United Arab Emirate.

Ali, who was flown out of the country by Dickens Sanomi Foundation survived a six-hour operation that put him back on his feet after being restricted to a wheelchair for three years.

The foundation has collaborated with a non-governmental organisation, the global initiative for peace, love and care, which drew the attention of Nigerians to the boy’s plight.

The group had approached eminent Nigerians for assistance, culminating in Dickens Sanomi Foundation picking up the bill.

Contrary to doctors’ predictions that Ali would be able to walk after three weeks of recuperation, the little boy without prompting walked unaided on September, the 23rd, 2017, six days after the operation. (Channels TV)
