Mallam Yusuf Bala, in his chase to nab a bag of rice for himself, ended up leaving behind his five-year-old son as a collateral in the store on Sunday in Kano.
According to reports, Bala made it to the rice dealer’s store and purchased a bag of rice.
After that, he immediately headed home to get more money for the rice, as what he had with him wasn’t enough, but asked his 5-year-old son to wait for him.
Six hours later, Bala hadn’t shown up to pick up his son and pay his debt. After waiting in vain, the dealer asked the little boy where he lived and both of them headed to the house.
On sighting the dealer and his son, Bala openly confessed that he had no money to settle his debt and thought leaving his son was his only resolve.
Instead of turning Bala in for his inhumane behavior, the rice dealer gave the bag of rice to him and handed over the boy to his father.
