The country woke up to the news that the story of Mary Daniel, the amputee hawker that went viral on the internet sometimes last week faked her story, and furthermore, it was revealed that the Lagos State government was planning to seize the #25 million donated to her by the public.
Mary had said her parents died in an accident, and that the accident led to the amputation of one of her legs, this led to pity from sympathetic Nigerians who raised a whooping sum of #25 million for her.
Not just that, she enjoyed some other benefits, like the Lagos State government giving her accommodation and more.
However, the news going viral in the morning was that the Lagos State government was planning to seize all she acquired from the episode as a punishment for her fraudulent act.
The news at the moment is that the claim is untrue, as the state government does not have any plans, at least not yet, to seize her money or other properties.
