Well, it turns out that despite all the scam and hard times Nigeria has been through there really is still hope in our humanity. There is still a huge chunk of love in our hearts.
A young boy was seen sleeping in the middle of the road beside trays of plantain that he was hawking at night and someone took a picture of him and shared it on Twitter.
A lot of people started retweeting, spreading the word and reaching out to finding the young lad and offering him assistance.
It grew wide and people started trying to locate him and he was eventually found.
His name is Joseph and he is a 10-year-old from Akwa Ibom. He lives in Lagos with a woman who took him from his poor parents promising to send him to school but rather put him on the streets to hawk, he was starved and had not eaten for three days.
Williams Uchemba, Instagram comedian and also a former child actor who is currently in Los Angeles, was one of those who rallied around to find and help the child. He had a video call with the boy and has promised to offer assistance.
It was reported that he reached out to the boy’s madam and she told them that they can take him if they want.
There’s enough love to go around, all you need to do is share it.
