A 25- year old physically challenged man identified as Danjuma has been allegedly dumped on a refuse heap by his uncle apparently to die.
Danjuma is the only child of his deceased mother and no family member could locate his father’s whereabouts. It was gathered that the mother, a former staff of Nigeria Telecommunication, left money for his well being but family members kept it to themselves. The refuse heap where Danjuma was dumped is high and our reporter had to climb it to get his photograph. Also, journalists were forced to shout in order to talk to him. The young man demanded for a plate of rice and stew and said he was kept there by his uncle. The wheel chair used by Danjuma was at the refuse heap. Neighbors said he was taken up the refuse heap by the uncle after he was left in the rain and sun for many weeks. They said the uncle threatened to deal with anybody that gives him (Danjuma) food.
