A fake blind beggar, Abdullahi Abbas, who was apprehended in the
Ikorodu area of Lagos state yesterday August 21st, has confessed to
making between N5,500 and N8,000 daily just by disguising as a beggar.
37-year-old Abdullahi who is always led by a 12-year-old boy (name
withheld), begged for alms every day at the First Gate and Odogunyan
area of Ikorodu.
He was apprehended yesterday after an inquisitive resident of the
area, Adeoye Baliks, engaged him in a conversation that made her raise
an eyebrow. According to Vanguard, she raised an alarm and the man was
examined by passersby and it was discovered that he was not blind.
When interrogated, Abdullahi who is from Oyo state, said he belongs
to a group of beggars who feign various types of deformity just to get
people to sympathise with them and give them money. But for the timely
intervention of the vigilante group members in the area, the mob that
had gather gathered were in the process of lynching him. He was rescued
and then handed over to the police in Sagamu.
