A Spain-based man nearly ran mad after returning to Nigeria to get a very saddening news from members of his family.
He had apparently been sending money to his family back home for a building project for about 15 years that he’s been abroad, only for him to land in his motherland and discover that his mother and siblings squandered all the money.
A Twitter user @Inzaghi1 shared the story after witnessing the man going into a fit of non-stop lamentation along the road at Oregun.
The incident reportedly happened around 8:30am and it caused some serious traffic that motorists had to alight from their cars.
The tweep said the distraught man said he sent them money to build a house for himself and a building of four flats which they can be renting to make money but they did none of the projects.
“8.30am: A man is crying & screaming in Oregun, apparently he just came back from Spain & all the money he’s been sending to his people to build a house is no where to be found.
He said he’s been gone for 15yrs and his mother & brothers have nothing to show him..People are in traffic & foot soldiers have gathered , I had to roll down to see what’s going on.
I haven’t seen a man cry this much, he said he feels naked and empty.. All his life savings gone, he sent them money to build his personal house and 4 flats so they can earn income,” the post reads.
