The young amputee and fresh water vendor in Lagos, Mary Daniels, is now a homeowner. The 27-year-old lady held a ribbon cutting ceremony for her mansion, which was attended by friends and family members. Photos and videos of the party surfaced on social media with several online observers congratulating the lady.
This is indeed a new beginning for the amputee water seller, Mary Daniels, who went viral on social media months ago after sharing her story. According to an exclusive report by Punch, Daniels, 27, is now the owner of a N17.5 million property in the Igando area of Lagos State. The same media outlet reported that the young woman bought the property with the N25 million donation she received from well-meaning Nigerians.
In addition to the house, Daniels has also started work on her « natural » water plant which is located in the same complex. Exclusive photos were posted on Punch’s official Instagram page. Also speaking to some correspondents of the same media, Daniels explained that she decided to invest in the plant because selling « natural » water has been her source of income for a very long time.
The young woman also revealed that she had taken custody of her daughter and that the little one now lives with her. Social media users who were following Daniels’ story, since it went viral, had words of congratulations for her. Others also praised her for using her funds wisely. « She uses money well… A house in Igando is like a diamond… Congratulations, » said Debar Gainer.
« Congratulations to her. She has spent the money wisely, » Ify Mordi also agrees. « I must commend the Lagos State government for its quick action in ensuring that she uses the money well. More blessings to those who donated to her, » wrote Godfrey Chiwendu.
