The predicament of the victim identified as Victoria, was been brought to public attention by a good Samaritan who shared her photos, today, April 5, 2016, asking for help on her behalf.
The good Samaritan revealed that the woman who is also mentally deranged, has been living on the streets around Ajibode, University of Ibadan extension, Ibadan, calling on the necessary authorities to come to her aid.
Read he wrote below:
"My aim of writing is because I want you to help call on the necessary authorities to carry a mentally derailed in my area that's in Ajibode, University of Ibadan extension, Ibadan.
The lady is called Victoria and she is presently behind the primary health care centre there. She used to be very active and industrious, she picks empty bottles and goes to Ojoo market to sell. Was even told she has kids and husband but nobody knows where they are.
"I had an encounter one day, I was buying pepper from a woman, and the woman needed some change, she approached her, and she helped changed the money into lower denominations. she left the area sometime, but when she came she became very sick.
"I saw her on my way back from work yesterday close to the road where she could easily be killed by a vehicle, but everyone just looked with pity and left. So with the help of some ladies we were able to carry her from the roadside and put her behind the maternity centre, bought food for her and paracetamol. of course she muttered some words saying " E sanu mi, ara n ro mi" Have mercy on me I am in pain. she even requested for mirinda which she was given, she sat up took the drug and drank the mirinda."
We sincerely hope help comes to her before it is too late.
