A 39-year old prophet, Ojo Babatunde has cried out for help to save his wife from untimely death.
Naija News reports that Ojo who is in charge of Cherubim and Seraphim Church, at Ishawo, Agric, in the Ikorodu area of Lagos in his appeal also beaconed on the Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode, the Governor-elect, Babatunde Sanwo-Olu and kind-hearted Nigerians to come to his assistance to save the life of his wife.
Prophet Ojo Babatunde said that his wife currently suffers from gunshots fired by militants which shattered her two legs when they invaded his residence in April, 2017.
The prophet said that a doctor at the Orthopedic Department of LASUTH, Ikeja said that bullets had affected the bones of his wife’s two legs and that an operation which would cost about N250,000 was needed to correct it.
He said he had nothing left to perform the operation as he had already spent he had, including selling his properties to take care of his wife since the inception of the incident in 2017.
Narrating his ordeal, Ojo stated: ”I was at home with my family in April 2017, when scores of militants, armed with sophisticated weapons invaded Olorunsogo Estate, Yewa, Ishawo, Ikorodu, Lagos where I lived and started shooting, sporadically into residential apartments and abducting residents. They were protesting their dislodgment by the police and military from oil bunkering in the area
”And in the process, bullets shattered my wife, Bukola’s two legs. My three years old daughter, Ewa, was shot on her buttocks while my younger brother, Olorunmaye was also shot.
”Following the development, military personnel assisted me to rush my wife, daughter and junior brother to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, LASUTh, Lagos but that while my wife and daughter survived the gunshot injuries, my brother, Olorunmaye died.
”A doctor at the Orthopedic Department of LASUTH where my wife had been receiving treatment for the past two years said that bullets had affected the bones of her two legs and that an operation that will cost N250,000 is needed to correct it.
“I do not have the money to foot the bills, that is why I am now appealing to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, Babatunde Sanwo-Olu and well-meaning Nigerians to come to my aid and assist me to treat my wife to enable her stay alive.”
