Some social media users have suggested that it might have been the decision of the boy to join in the work to be productive. While some have perceived it as plain wrong that a child will have to be exposed to such harsh conditions just to get food on the table.
On the bright side, the photo has stirred up conversations on social media, some of which captured the attention of a certain Twitter user Identified as Kembalo. On seeing the picture, she posted that people help her in locating the boy who she has offered to sponsor his education and ensure he is well taken care of.

Kembalo who has offered to sponsor the young boy if he is found, gained the praises and prayers of Nigerians who agree that he deserves to be in school and live a more respectable life.
