Tunde Onakoya, a well-known entrepreneur and philanthropist, has shared the transformation of a young girl he took from a slum and enrolled in school.
He took to Twitter to share old photos and tell the story of how he met the little girl on the street.
According to the humanitarian, he saw Odunayo hawking alongside her baby brother in Majidun Ikorodu, and he took both of them out of the slums.
He described being moved to help her after hearing her story about being assaulted by a 40-year-old man.
Tunde reveals that Odunayo just finished her first year of school and passed her exams two years after moving her from the slums and enrolling her in school.
“Today makes it exactly two years since I met Odunayo hawking fish on the streets of majidun Ikorodu with her little brother.
A lot has happened since then, but two weeks ago, she completed her first year of school and passed her examinations
I shared their beautiful story here sometime last year Oh how time flies…
I remember how I would always go to their house for the first few weeks to teach them chess and basic literacy. She had been a victim of sxxual abuse from a 40 year old pedophile in that community. It was on this day I swore to be a part of lives and keep them safe forever.
Odunayo had been through such a turbulent childhood that we had to put her through 3 months of therapy and counseling before she could trust/talk to anyone again. She’s now growing into a young confident Lady who loves to play chess and video games.
Odunayo and her brother lived with me for the first one year since I adopted both of them, but after sometime I realized she needed motherly care that I couldn’t give. My Mum took on that responsibility and she has lived with my parents in Ibadan ever since then.”
