Life is a mystery; this is one fact that can never be overlooked.
It's the festive season and generally it is assumed that during this period, all forms of evil, ills and wrong attitudes towards others are meant to disappear.
But then, it has been proven over time that even during the period of funfair and love, hatred can still reign supreme.
In line with this thought, a video that recently went viral has shown just how the yuletide period is never quite an excuse for anyone to not do something wrong. In the viral footage captured by a woman, a young girl was supposedly maltreated.
Based on what the clip showed, the said girl who is still likely in her childhood years, had accompanied a family to a popular restaurant located in Abule Egba, Lagos. The couple looked well-dressed in matching outfits just as their children looked good in their ready made attires.
Apparently, they had come into the eatery to celebrate the festive season, and to this effect, they ordered for several assorted meals - pizza, ice-cream, chicken wings. Without hesitation, they dug into the food. But they forgot the little girl they had brought along, or better put, they ignored her.
This young girl who was wearing a casual black dress was made to sit at another table while the family was enjoying their feast. She stared at them hungrily but they paid no attention to her. Even the young kids of the couple were so caught up in their meal that they totally forgot about the girl.
In the video, the woman who had captured the footage could be heard talking. She could not help but assume that the young, neglected kid was the family's housemaid, and clearly, she was very pissed that they had abandoned the lady in such way.
Because of this, she took to sharing the footage on social media and adding this telling caption: "Some Nigerians are just so cruel , the Government is not only the problem of the country, the people also are. Why do this to a child on boxing day? We are the most religious and most ungodly people on earth. Chai feel like kicking that table."

The video which has been making rounds online has generated a lot of responses from Nigerians. Needless to say, the comments have been harsh, spiteful and very much addressed to the family who had supposedly committed this atrocious act. However, the woman who had shared the post also received some of the backlashes.
See some of the comments below:
As it appears, the wife of the family who has been branded with this accusation has finally stumbled on the video and she has replied to the claim meted against her. The woman whose name is Folawuyo Oluwabunmi Abiola Adegboye on Facebook took to her page to clearly state her ground.
According to her, the entire video was a staged 'play', and thus, it was fake news. Folawuyo went on to state that she does not have a housemaid, much less have any sort of affiliation with the girl who had sat afar from their table.
Folawuyo was greatly annoyed at the offence that had been levied against her. Her anger was reflected in the post she shared.
