Here’s PACT’s statement;

“This little boy of about 7 years is dying on the street of Uyo by  Udi Street. We encountered him yesterday night during our regular outreach. He is one of the abandoned kids. He was nocked down by a vehicle who never cared about him since nobody really cares about kids like this. As at the time we met him, he couldn’t use his body and hands. The wounds are decaying and his ears filled up with flies. We are pleading for help from any corner so as to deposit him at the hospital for cures before any other step could be taken about him.”

In an update:

“The child Solomon is now receiving treatment at Uniuyo teaching hospital. Thanks to the kind attention and support of David Emmanuel Umem who has  assisted PACT and Reach Out Life International Foundation (Rolif) a member of PACT Akwa Ibom Coalition to help this child”
