Mary said she built the house through the N25m donations gotten from members of the public. The former sachet water hawker revealed that she bought for N17m and later renovated, with tenants occupying it already.
You will recall that many Nigerians had reacted to the latest revelations about the Lagos amputee hawker Mary Daniel, who became an internet sensation after her pictures went viral some months ago.
All was going smoothly for her until the Lagos state government discovered that she lied about what led to her circumstances.

The Lagos amputee hawker had earlier claimed that she lost her parents and a leg to an accident that killed all passengers when she was a teenager. These claims generated sympathy, and many cheerful givers have raised N25m for her.
While some people tongue lashed her for lying, some believe that the dire situation of the Nigerian economy pushed her into engaging in such a dishonest act.
