A Pan-African group, AGS Tribe, has been able to crowd-raise N22 million from members of the public for the welfare of two little children whose parents died in Lagos state.
Olamdide Alli, their mother, was murdered by her fiancé, Chris Ndukwe, on Sunday, June 21, who in turn took his own life.
After the group confirmed that she was a member of their organisation, they asked Nigerians for help in assisting the two children.
Ifedayo Durosimi-Etti, the founder of the organisation, said that she could not believe that they surpassed their target.
“When I announced the 20million as a target... I was SCARED!!!! After we got to 6 million, I started having heart palpitations... I don’t even know why... but even more fear set in,” she said.

She appreciated everyone who has contributed to the scheme, saying that God will bless them abundantly. She said they will not experience such a tragedy.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that to survive the economic hardship that the ongoing lockdown is causing, a woman named Peninah Bahti Kitsao living in Mombasa, Kenya, has been cooking stones for her children.
Before the coronavirus lockdown, the woman worked as a local laundrywoman. Now that restriction is in play, her customer base has drastically dwindled.
Peninah said that she always hoped they would fall asleep as they wait on end for the meal (stones) to get done.
Her neighbor, Prisca Momanyi, who was taken aback by the whole act, informed the media about the woman’s plight.
