@goldmynetv, you guys should vividly look into a situation before publishing rubbish.this incident happened at ikola ilumo at odetayo street, the truth about the incident was that the family of the little boy called @segun_wire, want back the custody of their son after seeing how successful he has become with the help of @zlatan_ibile. I just feel this is an ungrateful act from the family of segun wire, especially his uncle who beat zlatan mercilessly.
Recall that in 2017, Zlatan Ibile reacted to viral reports which claimed that Segun Wire has gone back to the streets to beg.
He shared a video of Segun in his school, and a video of Segun’s mother debunking rumors that her son has gone back to begging. Zlatan also showed off the receipt of Segun’s school fees.
