A concerned Nigerian man touched by the plight of a family of five he spotted sleeping outside on the bare floor in Festac area in Lagos has asked the public to come to the family’s aid.
According to Omololu Omotosho, the mother is said to be mentally unstable while the oldest child who is just 11 years old, goes around begging for food and dancing in beer parlors just to fend for himself and family.
The family was spotted sleeping by 10.15 pm yesterday night as a cry for help is being made to the state government and other concerned Nigerians to come to the aid of the family.
Below is what Omololu Omotosho shared on Facebook;
Well, this is sad. Please share and help
