Over 892 Persons Rehabilitated in Ogun


The Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Developments has evacuated over eight hundred and Ninety-two (892) persons, comprising destitute, beggars and mentally-ill persons out of the State in the last one year.

The Director, Rehabilitation Services, Mr. Adetoye Adeshina made this known while fielding questions from newsmen, saying, out of the evacuated people, some have been united with their families, while others were repatriated to their states.

“Out of about eight hundred and ninety-two persons evacuated from the State, we have united some back with their families for those within the metropolis, while others have been repatriated to their states, in order to start a new life”, Adeshina said.

He added that the Ministry had recorded success in the provision of financial assistance to the rehabilitated victims, for the establishment of small scale businesses over the years, saying language was no barrier in cases of victims who do not understand English and Yoruba languages, as the department had good rapport with the leaders of Hausa, Fulani and other ethnic groups.

While saying that two hectares of land had already been allocated for the construction of rehabilitation centre, the Director said the centre would ensure better monitoring of the rehabilitated victims.
