Kid Adopted and Saved from Street by Kind man, Wins Maths Award in Lagos

Nigerian Kid who was saved by a kind man has worn a mathematics award barely one year after being picked off from the street and sent to school. In 2021, a story of a kind man, Tunde Onakoya who took a little boy who always picked scraps from a slum in Ikorodu off the street and enrolled the kid in school went viral.

Barely a year after the transformation, the little boy has proven that sometimes what most people need in life is a helper.


The kid has been awarded a Mathematics Award for his great achievement in school, @mrmadoika revealed on twitter.


Reacting to the good news, some Nigerians on Twitter were amazed at how the child’s life completely transformed, saying it is a good example of how opportunities can change lives.



Below are some of the reactions to the amazing story:
