Breast cancer patient Saadatu Muhammad's condition is worse than reported...her other breast is infected (graphic)

A statement issued this evening by SA Communications to the Deputy Governor of Bauchi state, Yakubu Adamu revealed that the present health condition of 19-year-old breast cancer patient, Saadatu was Muhammed Giade is worst than earlier reported. In fact , the photo was taken last year after she was operated on. 
 
The surgery was done in July, 2015 when she was first diagnosed with cancer of the breast. She was asked to return to the hospital for assessment a month after the primary surgery was carried out. She failed to do so and instead resorted to the use of traditional medicinal herbs which led to complications. Even worse, her other breast is suspected to have been infected. Below is the statement and a photo of her current condition. *warning - graphic image*
 
"SAADATU MUHAMMAD GIADE (Cancer Patient): SETTING THE RECORDS STRAIGHT
It will be recalled that a picture of Saadatu Muhammad Giade, a woman suffering from breast cancer went viral on social media with a lot of Nigerians soliciting for assistance from other kindhearted Nigerians.

"It can also be recalled that the wife of Bauchi State Governor Hajiya Hadiza Mohammed Abubakar through her NGO, Bauchi Sustainable Economic Empowerment and peace Initiative (B-SWEEP) has taken over all responsibilities of Saadatu Muhammad Giade's treatment and has visited her at the Ward 4 of ATBU Teaching Hospital alongside wife of the Deputy Governor, Hajiya Fatima Gidado.

"For the records, the picture of the supposed infected breast that requires medical attention does not represent the current state of Saadatu Muhammad Giade (picture of her current state below). That has been operated upon in July, 2015 when she was first diagnosed with cancer of the breast.

"She was asked to return to the hospital for assessment a month after the primary surgery was carried out which she failed to do and resorted to use of traditional medicinal herbs which led to complications.

"Saadatu Muhammad Giade's other breast is suspected to have been infected (tests ongoing) as there are swollen mamary lumps, the reason she was returned to the hospital by her family.

"A team of Doctors headed by Dr Abubakar Kadas of ATBU Teaching Hospital is making preparations to refer her to ABU Teaching Hospital Shika, Zaria by Friday 26th February, 2015 for Chemoradiotherapy after results of samples currently undergoing tests must have been received.

"Her Excellency the wife of Bauchi State Governor through her NGO, B-SWEEP has already paid for pre-referal expenses and will continue to shoulder all expenses forthwith.
Her Excellency also appreciates all your prayers and support and wishes Saadatu Muhammad Giade speedy recovery."
