10-year-old Joseph, the plantain seller who was pictured sleeping in the middle of the road late at night with his tray of plantain by his side, has had his story turned around after former child actor Williams Uchemba stepped in to help him.
Joseph left his parents in Akwa Ibom to serve a woman in Lagos after she promised to send him to school while serving,But she then turned around to maltreat him and make him sell plantain on the streets of lagos.
He was picked up off the streets when a photo of him went viral, he was cleaned up real good, fed, and is now on his way back to his hometown in Akwa Ibom state. Some members of Uchemba’s team accompanied him home to be reunited with his parents.
They have also promised to rehabilitate him to make sure he doesn’t return to the streets anymore..
