POVERTY: Hungry Nigeria Children Caught On Camera Eating Grass to Survive Sparks Reaction.
Two unidentified children have been spotted in a video obtained by Sahara Reporters feeding on raw grass due to a high increase in poverty in some villages in Katsina.
The incident happened in Mabai village in the Kankara Local Government Area of Katsina State. As seen in the photo, two unidentified children were feeding on raw grass as their mother looked on.
The rate of hunger and poverty has since increased in the Northern part of Nigeria due to the sudden unending activities of Bandits in the region.
The children are one of the many displaced individuals seeking abode in Mabai village due to incessant attacks of Northern Bandits.
The business of the Parents was affected as a result of Bandits activities, which then made the children feed on the grass to quench their hunger.
While reacting to this, active EndSars Activist, Aisha Yesufu felt displeased as regards the incident.
Yesufu in her words faulted the Administration of Mr. President for not looking into the Agricultural sector of Nigeria. She also stated that despite being the President of Nigeria, his State, Katsina still wallows in hunger.
Here are some reactions:
