Little Taju taken in by Oyo state government
Little Taju, the five-year-old boy from Ibadan, Oyo State has been handed over to his state government. He is now the responsibility of the Oyo state government.
Funmi Awelewa took her time to find Taju after his video went viral on social media and Taju has gradually became a sensation to many Nigerians.
His mother abandoned him with his father at a tender age to go marry another man.
However all that concerns Taju is now under the care of the government.
See Funmi’s post below:
“Thanks everyone for your love and support. I am so happy to let you all know that Taju is now in safe hands. TAJU is now with the government💃💃 I love you Boy❤
The wife of Oyo State Governor Dr Florence Ajimobi today, met with the little boy, Tajudeen Ibrahim Agbabiaka, that trended on social media some days ago.
It can be recalled that Taju was recorded in an instagram video, where he was asked questions in English language and could not respond because he could not converse in the language.
The Oyo state government has taken responsibility and custody of the child through the child welfare unit of the state government.
Dr Ajimobi reiterated her commitment to improving the quality of life of children and urged the young parents not to be irresponsible to the role of training their children but care for the children with the required nourishment and basics of life.
In the meantime, case work intervention is on going on the issue so as to bring it to a logical conclusion. The state government has reiterated its commitment to reducing the vulnerability of children and the under privileged in the state.
Taju is now with the government.

In addition to the total government coverage for Taju’s welfare, other awesome Nigerians contributed to ensure Taju’s welfare like AY, Don Jazzy and Funke Akindele to mention a few.
