ObiDients raise N500k for member rendered homeless after demolition of Oworonshoki settlement

Members of a political support group known as Obidients have raised rent money for a comrade who was displaced by the recent demolition of buildings in Oworonshoki, Kosofe Local Government Area of Lagos state.

Hundreds of houses Oworonshoki and Idi Araba communities were demolished by the state government days ago and many families were rendered homeless.

A Twitter user made a cry for help on the platform, for residents who were displaced as a result of the government’s action.

“I am calling on well meaning Nigerians to please intervene for the people of oworoshoki in Kosofe LGA, Lagos

The Lagos state government & the Oba of Oworoshoki have demolished over 500 houses and rendered over 8,000 people homeless with no form of compensation.”

A popular Twitter user, Morris Monye, who is a frontline member of the Obidient movement, revealed that someone who was a part of Super Volunteers for Peter Obi was displaced and he needed N500,000 to get a new home for his family.

He tweeted; “One of our own (a member of the Super Volunteers for Peter Obi) was displaced by this harsh govt policy.

He needs 500k to re-home his family. I am calling on all well-meaning Nigerians to assist. Every 1k or 2k counts. You can call him to encourage. He needs all the encouragement possible.”

A day later, he gave an update saying that the money had been raised. Monye thanked everybody who made it possible for the target to be reached in 24 hours.

“We’ve reached our goal. Thank you all so much. God bless,” he added.

Popular Nigerian actress, Nancy Isime has built a beautiful home for her father and mother, which is a dream come true for her.

The screen diva took to her Instagram page on Monday to announce that she ushered her parents into a fully funished 6-bedroom bungalow in celebration of her birthday.

She turned 31 on 17th of December 2022. According to the beautiful actress, there was also a housewarming with neighbours, relatives and friends in attendance.

Nancy said the house gift was also to appreciate her dad for allowing her to leave home and chase her dreams of becoming independent at the young age of 17.

Sharing photos and video, she wrote; Yesterday, One of my Biggest Dreams came to Fruition. I ushered my Daddy and Family into their fully completed, finished, furnished 6 bedroom home and it gladdened my heart so much. I’ve been on this for years and I’m glad I could finally complete and hand the keys over.

We also had a house warming party with neighbors, friends and relatives in attendance which also doubled as the part 2 of my 31st birthday celebration.

Watching everyone congratulate my daddy with hugs and cheers made me grin from ear to ear. When I asked how he felt, he said “This has added many more years to my life” 🥹 amongst many other heartwarming words.

This is also a way to thank my Dad for letting his 17 year old daughter leave home daily to chase her dreams of becoming a fully independent woman. At 19, I told him I was ready to live on my own and even if he had fears, he let me do me with trust that I won’t bring shame to the family. 13 years later, I’m happy I get to also fulfill one of his Life Long Dreams. I’ve prayed, envisioned and manifested this day into reality and I couldn’t be more grateful to God.
