- A Nigerian lady with a good heart has won the praises of thousands of people
- She rescued a hungry old man wandering on the street in the middle of the night
- She created awareness on the situation and is raising funds to put the man in a home
A Nigerian lady identified as Princess Akporaro Enaroseha has done something incredible. The young woman met a hungry old man on the street on her way home from the office and picked him up.
The young lady who shared details of what happened on her Facebook page said the old man had a Ghc3 note in his hand and was looking for where to buy food in the midnight. According to her, he was hungry, sick and was wandering on the street in the midnight.
Alerted by the state of the old man, the young lady said she called her brother who joined her with some relief materials. Together, they followed him to the slum he lives near Area 3 junction in Abuja, Nigeria.
It was while they were there that they discovered the old man was a retired soldier. According to the report given by the lady, he is sane, speaks fluent English, lonely, sick and homeless. With the help of her brother, they got him medical help, changed his clothes and started creating awareness on the need for him to be kept in a home.
While taking care of him, his name was discovered and given as Thompson Egbejule. He is believed to be from Delta state with his tribe suspected to be either Itsekiri or Ijaw. The old man was taken to the General Hospital in Wuse, Abuja where he was diagnosed with schizophrenia.
The young lady claimed to have taken him to Amazing Grace old people’s home in Kado Estate, Abuja, Nigeria where she officially handed him over to the social welfare service.
The kind-hearted lady gave a detailed report of the things she did for him as the social service eventually returned him to the spot where he was picked up.
Enaroseha is presently on a mission to build a home for him as he cannot live with people because he defecates and wee on himself. She is working on helping him regulate that as well.

Enaroseha is pleading with Nigerians to help her find the family of the old man in Sapele. As part of the post she made on Facebook, she wrote the following:
"PLEASE HELP FIND EGBEJULE FAMILY IN SAPELE.
Baba's name is Mr Thompson Egbejule. He is believed to be from Delta State Itsekiri/Ijaw by tribe. He is on admission at Wuse general hospital Abuja where he was diagnosed with schizophrenia. I made necessary arrangements for him to be to taken to amazing grace old people's home Kado estate Abuja. I officially handed him over to the social welfare service officials at Wuse general hospital to do the needful, the old people's home required a police report, a doctors report, a social welfare report and two passport photos of the head, social welfare unit of the hospital before Baba can be moved in. I was able to secure a police report and needed the social welfare officials to provide the other documents but obviously someone or group of persons wanted me to do their job for them. The old people's home will only deal with an institution and that means there's very little I can do at this point.Thank you all for the prayers, love and concerns for Baba. I have handed him over to the social welfare officials to do the needful. For eleven days I was left alone to do their job. What is the use of social services department without funds to run it's affairs? Who is holding on to the money budgeted for social services in Abuja? Wuse zone 4 Abuja is where retired soldiers gather in wait for their pension money. The scene will make you cry,you will never want your retired relative to go there or even allow them serve this country after seeing and hearing from the retired old,lonely and sick men. you will not allow any of your relatives to join the army. Try and go there to check them out. Most of them die under that bridge leading straight up to Wuse market and their bodies given mass burial by social welfare service officials. WHO IS HOLDING ON TO THEIR MONEY? Many thanks doctors, nurses,caregivers at Wuse general hospital and to Timi Dare who donated 5k and Ojo Oluyomi for the 20k donated. This whole thing has been physically, emotionally and mentally draining.To get simple things done in this country is hell! I used to wonder why Nigerians run away from helping, even accident victims, now I know better. Let's keep fighting,we can not afford to be seen as a nation of incompetent people.The struggle continues..... God bless us all.
Baba was referred earlier to Karu general hospital for expert attention to manage his schizophrenia and I was told by welfare officials I would be required to make a deposit of at least between 100-120k. That I couldn't afford hence the decision to move him to an old people's home."
