Beggars in Ibadan protest low patronage

About 250 Beggars at Ibadan took to the street today, Thursday to protest low patronage by members of the public following a recent rumour that some rich men usually ‘buy’ money from them for ritual purposes.

According to the spokesperson for the beggars, Imam Abubakar Abdullahi, Serikin Hausawa of Hausawa Community, Oja’ba, Ibadan, the rumour has created deep hatred for his people.

Abdullahi said: “The reports that some wealthy people are buying money from beggars, including the physically-challenged people, for money rituals is not true.

“As a result of the claim that some ritualists do buy money from these beggars, there has been public resentment against these innocent people.

“What we know is that traders, hawkers and commercial drivers do come to these beggars who are mainly blind and lame people, to change money (get smaller denominations).

“We need to clear our names so that people will not be punishing us for offences we don’t know anything about.”
