How Story Of Mary Daniel Will Affect Other People Who Need Financial Help

Weeks ago, the Lagos state government and other well meaning Nigerians raised a huge sum of money to help an amputee lady who hawks pure water at Oshodi area of Lagos state. Her story went viral with the help of Nigerians on the various social media platforms.

According to the physically challenged lady, she lost her leg after a fatal accident and her family members are all dead. She survives by hawking bottle water under Oshodi bridge. This has generated massive sympathy from Nigerians which prompted donations of about twenty four million Naira.

The Lagos state government also pledged to provide shelter for the amputee lady. Yesterday, the state government discovered several discrepancies in her story. First is that she lost her leg from birth and that her father is alive. This latest discovery has shocked several people.

The Lagos state government has threatened to hold its money for the time being until proper investigation is carried out. Nigerians on social media are criticising her for faking her story while others provided excuses for her.

Truth is, this latest discovery will spoil the chance of other people getting help even if they truly deserve to be helped. Most people will now be reluctant to donate money to unknown people on the social media even if they truly need it.
