Man struck with river blindness

The father of a young man who recently regained his vision after being blind for 21 years, Mr Eli Humoshe, has said that his son, Edmond E li(24), will be enrolled for adult education.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Edmond, went blind at age three, but regained his sight over the weekend, following a free surgery offered him and many others at the just-concluded one-week medical outreach.

The outreach was sponsored by Senator Binos Yaroe (Adamawa South) at the LCCN Referral Centre in Demsa town, the headquarters of Demsa Local Government Area of Adamawa State.

Mr. Eli Humoshe said, “As you can see now, he is still quiet and just staring at things.

“I am overwhelmed with joy and short of words on how to appreciate God, Senator Binos and the doctors for this miracle.

“My plan for him after he fully recovers is to enrol him in adult education,” said Humoshe.

According to the father, when Edmond was just three years in Kpasham village of Demsa Local Government Area, he returned home claiming that some boys put sand in his eyes.

“We took him to a local clinic and the General Hospital at Numan, where we were referred to Kano but could not go due to lack of money.

“That’s how we continued to manage him as he completely lost his sight up till now that we heard about the free medical outreach organised by the senator,” Humoshe said.

Head of the Eye Unit at the medical outreach, Dr Ugochukwu Anunwa said the operation was performed by a consultant who identified the cause of the problem as juvenile cataract.
