The reason behind the hawker's kind gesture
In a recent interview, the bottled water hawker stated that there was no inspiration behind his kind act to the prisoners.
Admitting that he wasn't well to do, the young man said he took pity on the prisoners as unlike him, they do not have freedom and as such could not enjoy ordinary things like moving about freely.
He explained that he had started off with one of the prisoners by giving the person N100 but eventually shared the same denomination with other prisoners who cried out for theirs.
