- A single mother of three kids has begged the government not to reinitiate another round of lockdown
- The roadside trader said that she is the only one taking care of the kids as her husband abandoned them
- The trader said her household has three face masks each as a protective measure against the pandemic
As people are trying to recover from the economic hardship the lockdown on Lagos, Ogun and Abuja caused, a single mother of three children has appealed to the government not to reintroduce it.
In an interview with Legit TV, the single mother said that she is the only one fending for her kids and her old mother in the village.
A roadside popcorn seller, she added that she does not have any other means of survival as her husband ran away five years ago.
In narrating how that happened, the woman said that he just upped and left, packing his load in a N100 polythene bag, without giving any reason.
On how she has been protecting herself, the woman has three face masks which she alternatively uses every day as she added that once she wears one, she does not pull it off until she gets home.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Oyindamola Oluwaseun Ajibare, a caregiver and coronavirus survivor in Lagos state, explained how she survived the disease.
The survivor said that her employer fired her while she was still getting treated at the isolation centre.
Oyindamola also said that she suspected that she got the virus from the 11-year-old kid of her employer.
Resuming duty on Wednesday, March 11, she said that her employer’s son got back from the UK on Monday, March 23.
She said that the young boy came back with severe cough and fever and his mother had to call the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

According to her, while they were waiting for his result to come back, she was still in contact with the boy as his caregiver.
Oyindamola, however, said her infection could have taken place the very day he returned. “While we waited for the result, the boy was always in his room, but as his caregivers, we always had contact with him.
"But I suspect that it was the day he came that I might have gotten infected because the day the NCDC came to the house to test the boy, I started feeling some symptoms, itchy eyes and aching joints, but I just attributed it to stress,” she said.
