Beggars in Oyo state protest over low patronage caused by hearsay

According to reports, beggars in Oyo state have protested over low patronage of people in the state. The low patronage is caused by hearsay that beggars do sell money to wealthy people and are instruments for ritual purposes. The spokesman for the destitute says such gossips are all lies. 

The spokesperson for the destitute, Imam Abubakar Abdullahi, Serikin Hausawa of Hausawa Community, Oja’ba, Ibadan, had created deep hatred for his people.

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.”
