An encounter between Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, and a young daughter of Ibrahim Mohammed, alias Kaaka, the daughter of the young man who died from injuries after he was attacked by a mob in Ejura this week, left many emotional during the Vice President’s visit to the area on Friday.
Dr. Bawumia in the company of Chief Imam Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu led a government delegation to commiserate with the three bereaved families, and it was during the visit that one of the children of the deceased and the Vice President got everyone visibly emotional.
The little girl had stepped forward to say thank you to Dr. Bawumia after he made a cash donation of 20,000 to each of the bereaved families.
But as she approached the Vice President, she burst into uncontrollable tears and a visibly emotional Dr. Bawumia pulled her into his arms and gave her prolonged comfort as a dad would do to a crying daughter.
The touching spectre, left many, including the National Chief Imam, extremely emotional.
