Youths raise N4.1m to buy prosthetic leg for #EndSARS protester without limb

Youths have raised ₦ 4,119,570.00 to buy a prosthetic leg for a lady who joined the #EndSARS protest in Abuja, Jane Obiene.

As of 01.15pm when our correspondent visited the donation page, 727 people had contributed.

Information on the page showed that the target was to raise ₦ 1,500,000 in 30 days but that was surpassed within three hours.

Twitter user, Aproko Doctor @aproko_doctor, had shared the image of Obiene, asking Nigerians to donate through a link.

The image showed Obiene marching with hundreds of protesters bearing crutches.

He explained that Jane had been unemployed since 2013 over her disability among other reasons.

“This is Jane. She’s been unemployed since 2013 partly because of her disability, she came out in the #EndSARS protests and we need to help.
