- A young schoolboy has been captured in photos after he was seen selling banana after school
- In the images sighted by Legit.ng, the boy looked visibly tired, but had to engage in the sale to help his family financially
- Many social media users have been arguing whether this is right
Sad but heartwarming pictures have been captured of a young kid who was seen hawking banana after returning from school and looking visibly tired.
The photos were taken by one @shukuemekar who had seen the child and decided to give him a place to rest for a while before continuing with his job.
According to @shukuemekar, it was wrong for the child's parents to send him to hawk after returning from school with so much tiredness.
See the post below:
Some Twitter users have been debating for and against the notion that the parents were at fault.
@DannyWalta explained that:
"I’m not sure why it is wrong tho. It’s the family’s reality. You can either help them or not. I’m glad his parents even put him in school which shows they’re concerned.
"They have probably asked for help, begged to work but no one helped. What will you have them do?
@Blessin54789309 also pointed out that:
"Plsss theres nothing wrong in this...that might be deir own source of income or would u rather d child starve or worst more leave school.
"Life isn't rosey for everyone man.
@StepheniaOmeh's opinion was that:
"This is what happens in a country where everyone marry simply because his or her age mates are getting married. No Plan!
"I am getting sick and tired of repeated mistakes of our people!!!
"These behaviors put children in danger of sexual assault, kidnapping, and PTSD. SAD!!

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Nigerians rose up for the cause of Ashamu Lekan whose video went viral in 2020 after he was filmed repairing a tricycle.
In the said clip, the boy who turned mechanic and dropped out of school said if he had a helper, he would like to continue his education.
Days after, a good Samaritan with the Twitter handle @AnatuGreen coordinated donations from willing Nigerians so the young kid can live his dream.
