Nigeria's Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Oludare, has made contact with the coach and father of the young girl, Shekinah, whose boxing practice video went viral.

On Thursday, a Twitter user, @Muhmmaz1, shared the video of the young talented boxer sparring with her coach and she caught the eyes of many.

The video was brought to the attention of the minister who requested for the details of those responsible for the girl.

Those details were gotten and provided by the man who shared the video and the minister contacted them, as promised.

"The video of 8-year old Shekinah. Amazing stuff. Brilliant boxing Talent. The gold is in the Child. I spoke with her father Quadri in Lagos this morning and her Coach Sulaiman ‘energy’ to find out about her. We will follow her and get her adopted," the honourable minister wrote.

Meanwhile, a video of another young girl showing her boxing skills has surfaced online and, as he did with the first girl, the minister has asked for the details so he can make contact.

Mr Sunday also revealed that he is planning a talent hunt programme that would help his ministry scout and nurture budding talents.
