Mentally unstable woman fights officials for attempting to take her and her child off the streets

A woman who is  mentally unstable and her 6-year-old son who roam the streets at Amaoka Junction, Nnewi, Anambra state put up a fight when the state ministry of women and children affairs made attempts to take her and her son off the street.


The Anambra State’s Ministry of Women and Children Affairs rescued the mother and her son following series of posts made by concerned citizens on social media, pleading for the government to intervene on behalf of the woman and her two children who roam aimlessly along Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital Nnewi.
