He said ” When Biodun was injured, we called the Police but they didn’t show up, eventually he was taken to the health centre where they later transferred him to the university teaching hospital. There, we heard he was denied treatment because he could not produce his ID card. Imagine that, he was bleeding so bad but he wasn’t treated”.
