Lucky gathered from neighbours that the kids’ mum, whose name is unknown, should be in her early 20s and left them three months ago.
The neighbours spoke about how the woman showed little or no care to the kids when she was present. They said they have been caring for the kids days after they could not find their mum.
According to one of the neighbours, the kids seemed to have different fathers but nothing was said about the whereabouts of their dads.
Fortunately for the kids, Lucky was able to get them to an orphanage and they were enrolled in school. However, help is still needed to sustain the kids who are aged seven and three.

Five kids found living in uncompleted building
Meanwhile, THETALK.NG previously reported that a Nigerian lady had found five kids living in an uncompleted building.
The kind lady stated that she found the kids when she saw the youngest one shivering on the bare floor in the cold. She said they survived on garri all day.
In another video, she escorted them to where they had been sleeping in an uncompleted building. She gathered foodstuffs and gave them. A third clip of them she shared showed the kids looking better from the care she gave them.
