A physically-challenged young man called Charles has received great help from Nigerians as he got a new prosthetic leg.

According to Aproko Doctor on Twitter, the man lost his former artificial leg to police brutality.

With the help of Good Samaritans, he has started a walk-training with a new device, and he will also be getting the sum of N217,000 that people donated to him.

The money would be used to get him a house as he has been living in the National Stadium, Surulere in Lagos state.

"On God, great job, but i think he should use the money to start a business and save to rent a house later. Or how does he intend to renew the rent when its due for a new payment?"

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that it was an amazing moment and a sweet twist too when a young man identified as Demola proposed to his lover on Tuesday, October 13, during the EndSARS protest.

What made the couple's moment more interesting was that there were people everywhere with their placards.

Close to the lover was a protester, perhaps the friend of the man, holding cardboard which read:

"Na woman wey follow me protest we go propose to".
