Few days after a video of a little boy asking his mom to calm down while trying to flog him went viral, the little boy has just bagged an ambassadorial deal with an anti domestic violence NGO.
The NonGovernmental Organization, Combat Domestic Violence and Abuse Foundation made this announcement via their Facebook page.
We, the president, (Chief Dozie Kaidi Obiaku), members and trustees of the Combat Domestic Violence and Abuse Foundation would like to enjoin the general public to help us get to the boy in the viral video.
We would love to make him an ambassador.
Every violence in the world could be avoided if we learnt to calm down.
We have adopted ‘Calm down’ as a key mantra now and we would love to bring the boy in as one of us.
Please help us find him. Thank you.”
On finding the little boy and meeting with his family, the NonGovernmental Organization once more took to Facebook page and wrote;
“Behold Our Calm Down Ambassador
