A woman pretending to be blind to beg for alms was apprehended in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital.
The woman was reportedly arrested by Special adviser to Ebonyi state Governor on Mineral Resources & Environmental Management.
The woman, who hails from Imo State, stands by the Union Bank Junction in Abakaliki to beg for alms.
She allegedly applies Rob ointment to her eyes and this makes her tear up, she then keeps the eye shut while one of her children leads her by the hand. When the effect of the balm wears off, she allegedly reapplies it.
When the woman was caught, her eyes were forced open and nothing appeared to be wrong with them.
Igbere TV reported that the Governor’s Aide took the woman to the old government house after uncovering her deceit.
