I am trying to dynamically get values that are available

e.g. : I want to load 3 images while the database contains 5 columns for images
$data = [ 
title => ??,
user_id => ??,
body => ??,
img_0 => ??,
img_1 => ??,
img_2 => ??

This is my code:
public function addPost($data){

                $this->db->query('INSERT INTO posts (title, user_id, body, img_0, img_1, img_2, img_3, img_4) VALUES(:title, :user_id, :body, :img_0, :img_1, :img_2, :img_4)');
                //  Bind Values
                $this->db->bind(':title', $data['title']);
                $this->db->bind(':user_id', $data['user_id']);
                $this->db->bind(':body', $data['body']);

                // bind values of images
                $this->db->bind(':img_0', $data[0]['img_0']);
                $this->db->bind(':img_1', $data[1]['img_1']);
                $this->db->bind(':img_2', $data[2]['img_2']);
                $this->db->bind(':img_3', $data[3]['img_3']);
                $this->db->bind(':img_4', $data[4]['img_4']);

                // Execute
                    return true;
                } else {
                    return false;
