The Lagos State Government yesterday Wednesday July 24th dumped over seventy people said to be beggars and homeless people in Onitsha.
The destitute were brought into the state around 3am yesterday and left them under the flyover at Upper Iweka Bridge after being detained in Lagos for months for begging, wandering and other minor offenses by the Lagos State Kick Against Indiscipline Officials. Many of the people dumped at the location said they were not even from Onitsha and didn’t understand why they were dropped there. Some claimed they have family in Lagos and were picked up by KAI officials as they went to work.
This is the second time in a year the Lagos State govt will dump people at Upper Iweka in Anambra
