The attention of Nigerians has been brought to the viral story of parents who reportedly lost their child due to negligence and lack of love. But, on the other hand, reactions are trailing the story of parents who lost their child because of twenty-five thousand naira despite having millions in the account.
According to reports making rounds online, the husband of the unidentified family sent his wife packing over refusal to take the payment responsibility of their child as required from the hospital. He realized that his wife had a sum of three million naira in her account.
It was also gathered that the wife refused to make the payments because her husband is not responsible for his household. She maintained that the money in her account is her hard-earned money and that the man had no right to get angry and walk away from the marriage because she did not bring it out.
Numerous reactions are trailing this news, and Nigerians have faulted both parents for not putting aside their differences to care for their child. However, most of the blame fell to the father’s side, who neglected his duties while the mother was chastised for not caring about her child’s life.
