D'banj Visits Nyanya Bomb Blast Victims, Pays Hospital Bills

Nigerian music star D’banj yesterday Tuesday 22nd April 2014, visited victims of the Nyanya bomb explosion in Abuja.

The award-winning singer went to the Asokoro District Hospital, Abuja, with the FCT Health Secretary Dr Ademola Onakomaiya.

Speaking to reporters, he said “I am a Nigerian and I am affected by any tragedy that befalls us and particularly in the spirit of Easter, I came to show the victims support.

I have seen that the survivors are responding positively to treatment and thanked the medical team here for the efforts.

We are appealing to the perpetrators of these acts to have a rethink and support the peace initiative so that our people would not be subjected to such wickedness.”

D'banj also gave gifts to the victims and paid some hospital bills.

With reports that D’banj paid hospital bills for the victims, does this mean the government isn’t paying the fees of those affected?
