“Call me beggar and be arrested”- Physically challenged man

A 22-year-old physically challenged man, Abdullahi Sule who hails from Adamawa state is not the typical physically challenged type you see in Lagos everyday. Sule who lost his legs when he was five years old, sells stationery materials by the road side in Ikeja and has refused to let his condition define his life.

Unlike most who use their shortcomings as an avenue to beg, Sule has refused to toe that part and even admits that he despises beggars who rely on the practice.

Sule added that his resentment for begging is the reason he takes it personal when called a beggar and that calling him such can get you arrested. He said that he will report such persons to the police as the name calling is an infringement of his right. He went on to advice all the physically challenged persons in the society urging them to do more with their time and be productive while at it.
