It is no news that the level of poverty in Africa continues to increase at a disturbing rate and this has contributed to the number of beggars roaming the street.
Regardless of this reality, there are still some cases that are rather heartbreaking. One of such is the case of an elderly woman sighted begging in front of a clothing store in Nigeria.
In the photos which have been circulating the internet, the elderly woman is pictured not begging an actual person but a mannequin placed outside the store used for displaying clothes.
It is safe to say she lacked the ability to discern the differences between the mannequin and a human being.
Meanwhile, many people often put in so much time and energy into their vocations with the hopes of reaping the benefits.
While some are fortunate to enjoy the fruits of their labour, this was sadly, not the case for a man who recently died in a car crash.
Identified as Sylvanus Okpanachi, the 40-year-old man who had just secured a job after several years of job seeking, sadly did not live long enough to enjoy it as he reportedly died in a car accident a day before receiving his first salary.
