According to the heads of the settlements, Malam Magaji Abdu and Alhaji Ahmadu Garba, pregnant women and sick people are transported to health facilities using donkeys and ox-drawn trucks.

“This is due to the hard to reach nature of our settlements coupled with the lack of road networks and distance from health facilities.

“If a woman developed obstructed labour or any delivery complications as well as sick ones who cannot be conveyed on motorcycles, the last option is to use either donkeys or ox-drawn trucks.

“This is done over a distance of 20km or 15km depending on the location of the settlements and health facilities,” Abdu said.
