Wonders, they say will never end, as four young boys were abandoned at Agege Local Government Area of Lagos State, yesterday the 10th August 2017, by a man whose wife had absconded with a lover.
The hapless children – Enoch Abiodun (10), Damilare Abiodun (7), Tayo Abiodun (5), and 3-year-old Tobi Abiodun were left at the area office of Agege Local Government, the Sango ward of the Council.
The fleeing father of these children, Olalekan Abiodun however, left a note with them, explaining his reasons for deserting them. The derelict father who resides at 1 Adeniran street, Jankara, Ijaiye in Ojokoro local council development area of Lagos state, says a reason he made the decision to leave them behind, is influenced by his inability to properly care for them since their mother, eloped with another man.
The chairman of Agege local government, Hon, Ganiyu Egunjobi, who promptly rushed to the scene after he was informed of the pitiful plights of these young children, told reporters that the Lagos State Ministry of Social Development would be contacted to intervene in the matter.
