A 13-year-old boy, Bappah Adamu, was knocked down by an oncoming vehicle while struggling to get money thrown at a crowd on the highway in Bauchi

The incident, it was gathered, occurred at Konkiyel town when Halliru Jika, the House of Representatives member representing Ganjuwa/Darazo federal constituency was leaving the town after visiting a project site he is executing in the town.

A source in Konkiyel town, Safiyanu Konkiyel, confirmed the incident, adding that the lawmaker threw money into the air near the highway and people rushed to pick the Naira notes scattered on the road.

However, Halliru Jika has said that the death of the boy has nothing to do with his visit.

The lawmaker noted that the boy was knocked down by a car after he left Konkiyel town.

“It has nothing to do with us, the incidence happened after we left by about thirty minutes or an hour,” he said.
