14-Year-Old Fruits Seller In Abuja by kingreign(m): 8:25am On Jun 06, 2016
Hello everyone,
yesterday, i had a client who called me for an urgent appointment in Bwari, along the Dutse-Bwari expresswa, Abuja. I saw some fruits placed on a table beside the expressway in front of the Customary Court complex, Dutse, Abuja and decided to stop and buy some since i was hungry. A young boy came up to me and sold some apple to me. I chatted with him and he told me he is 14year old and had completed his primary school in his state (i didnt ask about his state of origin), and how his parents handed him over to a guardian to come to Abuja to start secondary school but the guardian brought him to abuja to be a fruit seller on the expressway exposed to dangers of harsh weather condition, dangerous high vehicles and other unfavourable conditions rather than taking him to school.
His spoken English wasn't excellent, he seemed smart yet calm, he told me his name (which i have forgotten). I decided to ask him for permission to take a picture of him. I had to leave him so as to catch up my appointment.
Reason i brought this here is so that kind hearted people can go there verify his story and if need be help this young teenager and many more disadvantaged people off the streets instead of being in where they ought to be.

He should be at school, learning and playing with his friends.

The best you can do is to get his parent's contact in Ebonyi.


The parents should be called for questioning, and if possible, they should be jailed.

I felt really moved by the boy's situation. I feel he can be helped. I have a video of me questioning him, but I have a challenge, uploading it to Nairaland and trust Glo network as usual, I can't upload it to YouTube so that I can post the link here.

Hmm, I hope you can find a way to upload it. I would like to watch it.

Or maybe send it to me and I'll upload it for you here.

Do you want to adopt him?

Will you take care of him?

Why didnt you report it to the Police?

DO you know if life would be worse for him with his parents than it is for him with the guardian?

Ask well o!! Before you go use aproko go remove food for this small boy mouth..

You want people to help him and you forgot his name in less than 24hrs. Let that boy hustle he could become a millionaire fruit seller or importer in future, you'll never know. His destiny could be anywhere. He can read and write and express himself in English,That's Education.



There are millions of unemployed graduates roaming the streets.
