Citizen Uche speaks on why he ran away...

''Like i told you over the phone, it is not easy for me. I contemplated suicide on several occasions. I cannot believe i am here holding my kids for the first time since they were born three months ago. When i left, i initially went to the village where i spent  a month. After that i came back to Lagos but stayed with my friend around Oko-Oba in Agege. I still live with him i know i was not far from my home. I was ashamed to come back to that house to see them without a better solution on how to cater for my home. I was ashamed to come to that house to see them after i had abandoned them and run away,but after our discussion and my wife told me that had moved. I went to our old house and asked one of the neighbours who had been here for direction so that i could come and see them...he said''

His wife, Ruth expressed gratitude to God and the Lagos State government for uplifting her family, saying that even her mother-in-law who never used to call now calls her frequently.
