The Lagos State Government says it has taken a mother and her malnourished twins who made news recently into custody.
About a week ago, the video of a mother with her malnourished twins living in an uncompleted building in the Egbeda area of Lagos state went viral with many people asking for account numbers to make donations.
Lagos state Commissioner for Youth and Social Development, Agboola Dabiri, at a press conference yesterday, said both the mother and the twins are now under the state government’s custody for proper care and attention.
“The mother was a bit unstable mentally while the children were malnourished as at the time they were rescued, the state government is working drastically towards their recovery and stability back to the society” he said
The Commissioner added that the mother of the twins also had three older children and that they had been taken into custody by the state government for proper care.
