A woman took to the social media today to expose a neighbour who is fond of locking her children up at home in Onitsha while she goes to work in Ebonyi state.

See the unedited narration below:

I want you guys to analyse these two pictures very well,it’s been bothering me but I don’t know what to do..
THIS is where I live in Onitsha,and this pic is my neighbour’s flat,we share the ground floor..
The mother of the house is a teacher who teaches in Ebonyi state,nd leaves Onitsha everyday to Ebonyi..She has 5 kids,12,6,3,2 and 1 year respectively. .she travels with the one year old everyday and locks the rest at home..she goes out with the key..so the 12 year old is the one I circled in the pic,I came home for lunch now and I saw the boy crying there,his mom locked him in that place and locked the younger ones in the house,ofc she took the keys ..

Prior to this time,she used to lock them all in the house,but the 12 year old will scale thru the toilet window which is the no 1 picture,go out and leave his younger ones in the house from morning till night.Yesterday,his mom came bk around 4pm,earlier than expected and he didn’t come bk till 7pm..that’s what prompted her to leave him in the mini cell with no food or water.. Firstly , I think locking kids in the house is a bad idea.

Secondly, I don’t know what to think,how to advise her and all coz she needs help.. A 12 year old boy scaling ?his younger ones are watching ,what do u think will happen?

This is totally wrong, how would these children escape if there’s any form of danger.

  1. This is a hard one. I honestly don’t think this woman is trying to harm her children but by locking them in the house alone she might be putting them in danger. What if there is a fire, these children may not have an escape route. But, what if she allow them to roam around and they get kidnapped. It is a sad situation. The best thing to do is pray too God to help her. Instead of the neighbor putting this struggling single mother on blast like this, she could have offered to watch the kids.

    • You are not a ***** and I see you doing the same thing. How could anybody lock their kids up in the name of going to work. Did she think of planning her family before she plunged into mothering 5 kids. Did the neighbor send her to have this kids? If you dont have anything good to say , please put your ******p. In a developed country this is seen as child abuse and I hope the child protective services are reading this as well. These kids need help. It is obvious that this woman is overwhelmed and the kids need urgent help.

  2. Where’s the father of the house? Anyway, the woman taught what she is doing is good, so that the kids are nt influenced wrongly. But I tell you, this would only make the kids to be mean n wicked.

  3. A woman in Lagos who locked her kids up every evening and go to night market to sell her goods. One evening she put on candle and left for market as usual. But the candle fell on the carpet. There was no way for the kids to excape. That is how her 6 children burnt to death.

  4. Raising children is such a difficult challange. Sometimes, due to the perculiarities of each case, parents find themselves doing things that they would have ordinarily condemned on a very good day. Yet they never mean to harm their precious children.

    But the truth is that this approach is very risky. Let’s assume that this woman had taken time to eliminate anything that could lead to fire, like turning off the mains control switch and locking her kitchen away, how about when one of the children suddenly comes down with a sickness that would require urgent attention? How about a case of injury and severe bleeding? You know that you can NEVER stop children from playing.

    While growing up, there was this woman that ran a provision store in her compound. That was where my mum would take us to instead of locking us in the house. Now, even if this teacher could not find a family to entrust her children with, is it difficult to locate a daycare where she could pay and have her children safe pending her return? The cost of this option is far profitable than locking up her children in the house because when the unthinkable happens, she may lose everything.

    Besides, her husband is not mentioned. What about him?

  5. D woman thought she is doing d right thing but she don’t know she is causing more harm than gud.

    But does it mean d children do not go 2 school? Bcos as a matter of fact dey re suppose 2 be in skul

  6. Dere parent does not hav sister or brother dat can look Afta dem instead of lookin dem indoor, wat if somtin bad happens and no body around 2 rescue dem. Dats bad and risky don’t like it all.

  7. The woman really mean well for her kids but we all know it’s quite dangerous. I remember my experience as well but I knew my parents were doing that for our own good so as not to mix up with corrupt children
