The act of wickedness shouldn’t be perpetrated on innocent children for selfish interest. It is inhuman and injustice!
A Facebook user, with the name Pre-gee Binaibi took to her timeline to share the ordeal of a 5-year-old she met on her way home from her Sister’s place in Yenagoa, Bayelsa state.
According to her, the girl was found under heavy rain where she was still hawking groundnut for her stepmother. She posted saying:
“Can u imagine? On my way back from my sister’s place, I passed by the market. It was raining seriously, so much that I was seriously feeling feverish. It was 15 minutes past seven and i was rushing home. On my way a man stopped the taxi I was in and begged the driver to help take a little girl who has been under the rain selling groundnuts.
She was shaking seriously and couldn’t walk. She almost fainted so the people around had to put her in a taxi cos she was walking home under the very heavy rain. Fortunately she was going my way so I offered to drop her at the junction were she lives. Getting there, it was still raining cats and dogs so I took her under a shelf away from the rain.
I was curious to know why a parent will expose their child to such. I asked her some questions and she said she was 5-years, left the house for the market in the morning to sell. I asked her what she ate and she said she drank just garri in the morning. Where is your mum I asked and she said her mum was home doing nothing. How can parents be so irresponsible?
This is child abuse. Exposing this little girl to such, I got her something to eat and then took her home only to discover that she was actually staying with her father’s wife. #live happening here in Yenagoa this evening.# #may God help our little children!”
This Is wickedness!
