How Wood Cutter, Kabiru Alhassan Lost His One Of His Hands
BBC News Pidgin Narrated how Kabiru fell from a tree and broke his hand with his friends when they travelled to the village.
After the uncontrolled landing, he was rushed to a traditional bone setter who helped fix his broken arm. Weeks later, the fixed arm would begin to rotten and thus he was taken to the hospital where a doctor had it cut off. The incident happened 22 years ago.
