They say humanity is the quality that makes us human, and these qualities vary from good to evil as it is perceived in our hearts.

However, the best form of humanity is showing love and compassion for one another, even when inconvenient.

No wonder Martin Luther King Jr said:

“An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.”

This was the case of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Chieftain, Dele Momodu and renowned female philanthropist, President and founder of Dorian Homes, Dr Tolulola Olajibike Bayode.

Bankole’s story out of the streams of destitute started when Dele Momodu raised the alarm about the boy’s condition in 2022.

Dr Bayode broke the ice when she revealed that little Destiny was threatened to be crucified by his father.

This was confirmed in the video shared by Chief Momodu on his official Instagram page.

Destiny was heard speaking in the Yoruba language, saying:

“Please, I don’t have anyone to help me. If I go to Mom’s place, she’ll chase me; if I go to my Dad’s, he also chases me.

“One day, my Dad wanted to beat me and threatened to crucify me. This made me run away from home, and my Dad has refused to send me to school.”
