An 11-year-old boy who hustles for his stranded family who sleep outside in Lagos, caught the attention of a social media user who took to Facebook to share his story.
According to Omololu Omotosho, the 11-year-old boy hustles for his stranded family who sleep outside in Festac area of Lagos and it was also gathered that his mother is mentally unstable.
The boy reportedly goes around begging for food and dancing in sit-out spots, just to make money to feed his family.
The Facebook user who shared a photo of the family sleeping outside by 10:15pm yesterday, wrote;
