    A statement signed by Ahmed Tukur, the Special Assistant Media and
    publicity to the governor  said that governor Al-makura has directed
    that the officer be moved to the orthopaedic hospital for proper
    medical attention.

    The statement said that the attention of the state governor was drawn
    to the officer while on inspection of the central police station Lafia which is
    undergoing renovation.

    He added that governor Al-makura was moved when he saw the officer
    on crutches and his right ankle swollen with fluid oozing out from the
    bullet wound  as a result of the gunshot he sustained since 2016 .

    Bartholomew who  hails from Sanga Local Government Area of Kaduna
    State was overwhelmed with joy and thanked Governor  Al-makura for the
    gesture and prayed God to reward him.
