A 12-year-old boy named Filibus Magaji, who is currently hospitalised at a facility in Barau Dikko, is being hailed as a hero after he reportedly fought off the attackers as they hacked his father with dangerous weapons.
A local volunteer aid worker (name withheld) told SaharaReporters on Tuesday that although Magaji’s father survived, he is critically wounded alongside two other family members on admission.
Narrating what happened to him during the attack, she said, “Filibus’s older brother ran for his dear life when their father was being attacked. Filibus didn’t run. He tried to fight them off and luckily both survived even though terribly hurt.
“You can’t see Filibus without something moving inside you. You just can’t. While with him today, he suddenly asked to be lifted off the bed because he said he felt someone beating him.
Salama was a five-day-old baby when her mother was killed on May 19 in Kajuru.
“When her mom was killed last Tuesday in Kajuru, she was five days old. She is the first child of her parents, so her father is devastated.
