Posting the photo of the poor boy who was left for death on Facebook, a resident of the state, Dachung Bagos, had this to say:

“On my visit to the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH), I met this young chap Geoffrey, from Robb in Barkin Ladi.  Geoffrey is 12 years old, early this month, he was ambushed and attacked around 4pm on his way home by suspected Fulani herdsmen who were hiding in the bush and came out to attack him.

He was shot in the jaw and his upper lips/side of the eyes cut, he was left lifeless thinking he was dead.

To cut the story short, so far, Geoffrey has gone through about two constructive surgery and he still have to undergo more surgery.

I kept wandering what this boy did to deserve this inhuman act. As it is today, children in Barkin Ladi and Riyom are almost wiped out in over 50 villages that are destroyed, the ones left are in IDP camps.

Let's make Geoffrey smile again. I believe God has a plan for him to be someone great in future; so let's put our hands together and support him to be healed and go to school."
