One day everybody including Baba Dan thought that the whole matter had been forgotten, news suddenly came that the District Officer was going to visit Gaba. He came he saw and he conquered. At Gaba, the D. O made the historic declaration that Domestic Economic Slavery – known as Tsofa and with all its ramifications was abolished and that any body being held for such reasons was relinquished. History had it that when the then Ndagaye – the Village Head of Gaba heard this declaration, he collapsed because he had a large number of such slaves working for him in his farm. Baba Dan’ Effort was rewarded with this historic abolishing of the Notorious Tsofa.
Baba Dan was known to be a highly disciplined Old man, since he received Christ, he had disassociated himself with all things that are unchristian. He became a disciple of all the ten Commandments. He was not sitting in the group of the scornful he was a leader by example and that is why he was highly respected by all that known him. He gave the world his selfless service so that you and I can today go about our lawful duties without hindrance and molestations.
May His labours not go in vain.
May his noble soul rest in perfect peace Amen.

She used to trek to Bida – a distance of seventeen kilometers in order to collect assorted medicines for the people.

Mama used to wake up very early in the Morning to boil water which she used sterilizing the equipments used to wash the wounds.
