A Nigerian man identified as Uche Novia has taken to the social media to recount how his little son had a bullet stuck in his hands for 28 days without his knowledge
Novia revealed that it took almost a month before they went to a hospital and discovered he had a bullet stuck in his hand
According to his post, the little boy who appears to be about three, had an incident and was rushed to a local bone doctor who then claimed the youngster had a broken bone. Novia revealed that they kept treating the bone injury for a whole month until a hospital scan revealed the real cause.
“He carried a bullet in his hand for 28 days
I have a testimony:
Okay y’all must have seen me post one or two things about my boy, Rocky. The incident happened on the 7th of February, I just got back from work when I heard him scream so loud. I rushed out and saw him crying and holding his right hand. We all thought something had cut his hand maybe while he was playing with the cup he was using to drink water. We rushed him to a local Bone doctor close to the house. The man did his best to adjust the bone and asked us to wait till the wound heals then we can come to fix the bone properly. All these while we thought we were treating bone. Not until few days ago we decided to do a scan and we found out a stray bullet almost hit this boy somewhere else but instead of hitting somewhere else, it hit his hand. We just did a minor surgery yesterday and a bullet was taken out. It could only be God. God did this for us and we are forever grateful. No matter how careful u think u are are if God does not have ur back, forget it!”
