Bullet in Baby's Head Yet to Be Removed, 49 Days After

Maiduguri — The stray bullet which hit 15 months old baby, Shuaibu Mahmud, in Maiduguri on Sallah day is yet to be removed.

The father of the boy, Mallam Mahmud, who was at the Daily Trust office in Maiduguri yesterday, said doctors at the Usman Dan Fodio University Teaching Hospital, Sokoto, where he was referred to said the bullet cannot be removed now so as not to damage his brain.

"We were told to bring him back by December because the bullet penetrated through his skull and could damage his brain and eyes", he said.

Narrating how the incident occurred, he said, "My son was playing with other children in my in law's house at federal low cost housing estate on Sallah when suddenly he fell down and blood started coming from out from his head. Initially, we did not know that it was a bullet that hit him, until he was taken to hospital, and an x-ray was carried out and the bullet was discovered".

Mahmud lamented that his son is no longer as agile as he used to be.

"He can no longer stand on his own without support. I am afraid that the bullet might affect his brain", he said.
