Not fewer than 250 beggars in Ibadan, Oyo state on Thursday, staged a protest due to low patronage by members of the public following a recent rumour they sell the money they get from people to some wealthy for fetish purposes.
The reported rumour has generated into a deep hatred for the destitutes, according to the spokesperson for the destitute, Imam Abubakar Abdullahi, Serikin Hausawa of Hausawa Community, Oja’ba, Ibadan.
In his words;
“The reports that some wealthy people are buying money from beggars, including the physically-challenged people, for money rituals is not true. As a result of the claim that some ritualists do buy money from these beggars, there has been public resentment against these innocent people.
What we know is that traders, hawkers and commercial drivers do come to these beggars who are mainly blind and lame people, to change money (get smaller denominations). We need to clear our names so that people will not be punishing us for offences we don’t know anything about.”
