According to Tope Fasua who made the disclosure on Facebook, Adeniyi noticed that the children were not attending schools so he decided to build one beside his house.
In his words:
"He noticed that there were so many children around living in the shanties around, who do not attend schools, so he put up a small shack on one of the lands nearby."
Nigerians on Facebook couldn't hide their joy as they flooded the comment section to commend Adeniyi for his selfless service to humanity.
