August 3rd, 2016 – Another Woman Arrested For Using Rented Twins To Beg On Lagos Streets

A married woman from Niger State, Mrs. Adiza Umoru has been arrested for using rented twins to beg on the streets of Lagos.

Her arrest came barely a week after three women were arrested by the officials of the state Ministry of Youth and Social Development for using rented babies to beg for alms.

Umoru, who was caught using twins for begging at Costain area of Lagos, claimed that her younger sister, Aminat, was the biological mother of the babies. However, according to the beggar, who hails from Niger State, she pays per time whenever she uses the twins to beg.

At press time, efforts were still on to locate the real biological mother of the babies. Sources in the ministry told us that the biological mother of the twins might have fled her residence for fear of being arrested.

  1. The parents of those infants should be traced and be arrested. There wicked heart shows they didn’t value those kids. This are really the type of people who do encourage kidnappings in the society. Those involved should be mercilessly dealt with.

  2. The twins look like her so they might be her sister’s children. But why use them to beg? Is it an assignment from a church or from babalawo that using twins to beg will bestow some benefit to her or what? Otherwise, I think Nigerians are kind hearted enough to still give alms to able bodied persons like that lady without her having to resort to using the kids and thus exposing them to danger associated with street begging.

  3. Before now, what came to mind when we mentioned rent were cars, housing accommodations, equipments etc. But owing to the intense hardship in the country and the highly deplorable laziness on the part of some parents, children have been robbed of their rights as intellectual beings that God had created them to be, and have been reduced to mere economic assets for the purposes of survival.

    The direct effect of this new business is that more of these poor derelicts would be encouraged to impregnate their wives and give birth to more children than they can feed. Renting children is either a new concept, or that we are just realizing it. But the nation will have to deal with a more serious problem when the business becomes fully fledged. Our corrupt leaders have underestimated the extent to which frustration could push a man. The population of Nigeria today is soaring at upwards of 180 million because of poverty, and it increases very fast. Yet our leaders are blithely oblivious of, or unconcerned about where their greedy and selfish appetites will plunge the nation.

    I would say that as much as the authorities are looking for who to prosecute here, let the government equally step up their game in fulfilling the promises they had made to the people.

  4. Poverty that PMB caused for everyone is causing all these rubbish. Now people are using any means to make earns meet. I am tired of this our country

  5. Bad economic and inability to shoulder responsibility,the father of the twins doesn’t render his domestic responsible,if he does,that useless woman can’t accept that evilish thought,and that wicked hungry leopard,didnt she have a child? This offence is grevious,let her be jail for 30years shikini

  6. Wow!! Everything is becoming rentable in naija! May God help us!

    Economy situation is by no means an excuse to start committing crazy crimes rather its time to sit up and get innovative.
