Woman Who Withdrew Her Son From School To Beg Says Begging Is A Lucrative Business..

REALLY?

A mother of six, arrested by operatives of Lagos State Environmental and Special Offences Unit Task Force for using her 11-year-old son to beg, while pretending to be victims of a fire incident, did not show any sign of remorse, saying begging was a lucrative business.




The suspect, identified as Chinagoro Uwenke, 40, was arrested yesterday in Oshodi area of Lagos.
Uwenke was always seen in the company of her son, whose leg was usually in bandage, discovered to be stained with liquid, which several people believed was pus from untreated burns.

Luck, however, ran against them after operatives of the task force demanded to know the magnitude of the purported injury on the lad. When the bandages were removed, it was discovered to the astonishment of all that the boy had no injury at all. Both mother and son were then whisked away.


‘I make N5,000 daily’

Preliminary investigation showed that the suspect had been engaged in the alms begging business for five years. She revealed, during interrogation, that she made between N3,500 and N5000 daily.

She said: “I live at Oloko-Dana, Ijora-Olopa area, in Onyingbo. I am from Abia State. Yes, my son is hale and hearty, but I took to begging because it is lucrative. I make more money at Oshodi than any other area because of the number of people that pass by daily.

“I withdrew my son, Sunny Uwenke, from school back in Abia and brought him to Lagos five years ago to use him to beg for alms. That is what most people do. This is because people take pity on children. My five other children are with my husband in Ata town, Abia State.

“What I do is to wrap his leg with bandage, after which I would pour GV and other liquid substance which will make it look as if it is an injury that refused to heal.
“I would then beg people to help me with money to take him to the hospital. Some will even give without me begging them.
“But I am appealing to government not to take me to court. If I am left off the hook, I promise to go back to the village and join my family.”
Chairman of the Task Force, Mr. Olayinka Egbeyemi, a Superintendent of Police, who confirmed the arrest, said there were several others like her on the streets of Lagos.

Isn't that obvious here? Sure it's lucrative when you have people giving to you always without sweating. And yes they should set the woman free, she commit no crime, out government has failed us, so we have to look for a means of surviving.

Let her off the hook? I disagree with you on that,for ruining that little boy's life, teaching him to beg for and not earn his living just because she gave birth to him,I think she should be jailed on that ground.

That is what they will be singing: give me kobo, bambiala, give me money bambiala. Allah sariki ne ku do or nu zu jare, i cant remember again

But the song dey sweet for ear, i will just be looking at them singing

Which no crime? She has refused to educate her child, obtaining by deceit is also illegal. I don't give beggars even 1kobo because it makes me an enabler. I would rather tip those that are working hard and honestly. If everyone goes into begging, who will give? Anyway, i am not surprised. This blog has a high number of such "beggars".

Cissy said...

It's not hunger...it's laziness, selfishness and greed all together, she has both hands and legs...she has been in the'begging business for five years' why didn't she mop up funds to start a business and not deprive her son from going to school.
On average she make 4250*30 days ie 127,500*12 months* 5yrs =7,650,000 ...isn't she a Millionaire?
Most people dat give her alms don't even make up to this...

Very old tactics of begging. Those ones that rent twins are there too. Others even use toddlers.

Oh by the way, yesterday guess who I saw in traffic cleaning my windscreen? Yes, it's that popular professional windscreen cleaner in suit. I saw him at that Maryland roundabout and was taken aback cos I thought he was off the streets for real. He looked so serious and didn't make any eye contact as he cleaned. I just smiled at him. Of course I gave him a token and I imagine how much money he'll get daily for being a recognized window cleaner after his news went media viral. No wonder he chose to return to the streets.

sisi eko said...

And the man left her to be begging while he sits in the village spending the proceeds. Smh

sisi eko said...

Hmmmmmm

sisi eko said...

The boy may even start to pick pockets if he gets used to street life
