The Oyo State government has evacuated 12 people said to be destitute from the streets and handed them over to the Almighty God Compassion Home,  Ibadan, for rehabilitation.

Also, the government has re-united three children apprehended under the Mokola bridge, Ibadan, with their families. The three children are Sadiq from Inalende, Kehinde from Ogbere-Pegba and Owoade from Iseyin,all in Oyo State.

The state’s Commissioner for Women Affairs, Community Development and Social Welfare, Mrs Atinuke Osunkoya, who led the crew of social workers to some areas in Ibadan, expressed government’s resolve to rid the state of the destitute.

Osunkoya stated that the destitute, homeless children and the mentally deranged would be completely evacuated from the streets by the state government so they wouldn’t constitute a menace to the society, explaining that out of the 12 children handed over to the orphanage home, 11 were homeless, while one was mentally deranged.  

She said that most of the destitute on the streets and under bridges all over the state had a right to participation and survival, stressing that homeless children as well as the physically challenged apprehended would be counselled and given a chance to live well either by re-uniting them with their families or taking them to collaborating non-governmental organisations.
