Even the result of the X-ray done on my leg was not given to me. But I observe that the doctors have it on their phone from where they assess it from time to time,”
“I have been told that the only thing delaying my surgery is blood. One of the doctors explained that I lost too much blood as a result of the bullet wound I sustained and would require at least two pints of blood.
“Consequently, I sent for my sister to come for the test, but she was rejected. I was told she did not look fit to donate blood.
“Even the medical director visited two days ago and expressed concerns about my case.
“I was told the surgery would have been done and the bullets removed two weeks ago if those two pints of blood had been available.

“But the doctors have reassured me that I have nothing to fear about the danger of having a bullet in my body.
“They said there are still some people moving around today with bullets lodged somewhere in their respective system,” he said.
“Honestly, I have no one to reach out to at the moment because all my relatives, including my only surviving brother, Jonathan, are presently in Delta State.
“I cannot even reach a couple of friends I know for help as a result of the wallet and phone I lost during the Lekki toll gate shooting.
“Having spent one month on this sick bed, I am tired and just want to leave.”
