A Nigerian doctor claims that he is in hiding after receiving death threats for amputating a girl's arms

Dr Dandyson Allison says he saved 13-year-old Saratu Yusuf's life after she was run over by a truck in April, 2008. But he was subsequently arrested and spent a week in jail after Miss Yusuf's family accused him of removing her arms without her family's consent. Other neighbors have accused him of being a "ritualist" who needed body parts for black magic, which he denies.
