Graphic photos: 12-year-old shot in the jaw & upper lips by suspected Fulani herdsman in Jos


According to Mr. Bagos who shared the photos on facebook, Geofry, a 12-year-old from Robb in Barkin Ladi was ambushed and attacked last month in the bush byu suspected Fulani herdsman. He was shot in the jaw, shot also on his upper lips and was left for death. He is currently receiving treatment at Jos University Teaching Hospital. Read what Bagos wrote below;

“On my visit to the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) I met this young chap Geofry from Robb in Barkin Ladi.  Geofry is 12 years old, early last month he was ambushed and attacked around 4pm on his way home by suspected fulani herdsmen whom were hiding in the bush and came out to attack him. He was shot in the jaw and his upper lips / side of the eyes cut, he was left lifeless thinking he was dead. 
To cut the story short, so far, Geofry has gone through about two constructive surgery and he still have to undergo more surgery.I kept wandering what has this boy done to deserve this inhuman act. As it is today, children in Barkin Ladi and Riyom are almost wiped out in over 50 villages that are destroyed, the ones left are in IDP camps. Let's make Geofry smile again. I believe God has a plan for Geofry to be someone great in future so let's put our hands together and support him to be healed and go to school."
