Hard working 27-year old, Mary Modu was part of the people that survived the first Nyanya bomb blast which took place on the 14th of April, 2014 at a motor park near Abuja. Mary who was recently discharged from Wuse General Hospital in Abuja, has begged the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Senator Bala Mohammed, to redeem the pledge of N1m and an artificial leg made to her by him. According to Mary, who had undergone several surgeries including one in her heart said the Minister promised to give her N1m and an artificial leg, after seeing she had lost one of her legs and her condition. But nothing has been heard from him or any of his aides after he made the promise to her on her sick bed.
Whenever my relations go to his office to try to see him, his aides usually send them away, she said. She appealed to the minister to please do something fast, so that she can be on her feet again.
Mary was a trader who sold clothes and shoes and was on her way to work before the unfortunate incident happened that morning.
