Popular Nigerian businesswoman, Ehi Ogbebor, has reacted to the video of a 15-year-old boy who destroyed his mother’s home.
A few days ago, a video showing a woman’s house in total ruins made the rounds online, with viral reports alleging that her teenage son destroyed the house in a feat of rage because she seized his phone.
The boy destroyed all the household items, including a kitchen table, window, gadgets, a television, toilet seats, and other items.
The boy’s mother, however, dismissed the report and revealed that he didn’t destroy their house because she seized his phone, but rather, he has a mental illness that they have been battling with since he was born.
Reacting to the viral clip, Ehi, who noted that training a male child as a single mum is not easy, praised her son for being amazing and shared screenshots of her chat with him.
“Watched a viral video of a 12 year old son that destroyed his mother’s apartment… I felt so bad for the mother I almost cried. Thanking God for my Amazing son.
“It’s not easy training boys especially as a single mom. My son is a Gift n treasure. He won’t even touch my 1 naira without asking. He almost acts like his mum is managing. To think he holds my money at times at home but won’t touch one naira for his fav “suya” without asking. God is Awesome. Just had to share .. Shout out to mothers raising Teen boys.” She wrote.
