Mrs. Uchechi Kalu, a mother of four children, who is a native of Ohafi in Ohafi Local Government Area of Abia State has cried out for help to save her son now in hospital and waiting to undergo medical surgery after a banditry attack in Abuja, The Nation reports.
Uchechi Kalu, a widow, said her son, Gideon Kalu (21) is now struggling between life and death at Alliance Hospital at Area Eleven Garki, Abuja after their house at Lugbe was attacked by armed hoodlums numbering over 10.
“We were sleeping at about 1 am when these hoodlums scaled the fence of our building to attack us.”
Narrating her experience to The Nation, Mrs. Kalu said on getting into their flat the bandits asked all of them to surrender handsets.
Unfortunately when the son demanded his SIM card one of the armed bandits pulled out his knife and cut the stomach of my son open.
