“From Nindem, we visited the victims who were receiving treatment at the Throneroom Trust Hospital in Kafanchan where the deputy governor and myself made cash donations,” he claimed.
The Administrator who said he was shocked at the allegations added that, asides receipt of payments of hospital bills he had copy of appreciation letter written by the Community.
