Narrating the incident, Jalil's Father said, two years ago, Jalil was on his way to the mosque to pray, unfortunately ran into a bicycle rider  resulting into what one would say a minor accident. He said as a result of the accident, Jalil had a fracture in the right leg. This, he said sadly led to the amputation of the leg after all treatments to get the leg healed proved futile. Sulemana Alhassan described the accident as tragic experience for Jalil and the entire family.

According to the little boy, people including his age mates mocked at him because of his situation. He revealed that, any little misunderstanding he has with his colleagues in school, they will not hesitate to insult his amputated leg.

His dream is to become a renowned footballer and to be able to walk without clutches. Unfortunately, Jalil’s family is poor and cannot afford him this support. Jalil’s father, Sulemana Alhassan and mother, Alhassan Fatima are both peasant farmers residing in Tuutingli, a suburb of Tamale and cannot afford to use the little proceeds they make from their farm to get him his much desired artificial leg. The family is therefore appealing to benevolent individuals and organizations to support them acquire artificial leg for little Jalil. The family is also soliciting support from Non-governmental organizations and philanthropists to support his education.
