Mary Daniel, the sachet water hawker who went viral because she’s an amputee, has acquired a 17.5 million Naira apartment in Lagos. The 27-year-old Kogi indigene bought the house located in Igando, Lagos. She is also constructing a pure-water factory inside the compound, which is near completion Recall that Mary Daniel received donations of about N25 million after she was pictured hawking sachet water in traffic in Oshodi and her story went viral.
Amputee former sachet water hawker, Mary Daniels, 26, has continued to surprise herself.
Her story came to national limelight earlier last April when she told PUNCH Online video team how her ambition of becoming a lawyer was cut short due to an accident she had in 2006. She was the only surviving passenger on the bus .
Or so she claimed, until her bubble burst and the untruth of her story was blown open by those who knew her authentic story.
She subsequently apologised, “Nigerians should forgive me. I said my father is late so Nigerians can help me. I made a big mistake; Nigerians should please forgive me.”
On Saturday, she invited PUNCH Online video team to her housewarming ceremony in Igando area of Lagos State, while she also disclosed her ambition to build a sachet water bagging factory.
The feat, she said, was made possible through the N25m donations she got from members of the public.
