Oreofeoluwa Lawal-Babalola, a little boy who went viral after telling his mother to calm down wheshe threatened to punish him for an offence, has stated that he wants to be a police officer in the future so as to fight corruption.
The 4-year-old boy made this known when he featured on an Instagram Live chat with City People TV on Friday.
“I want to be a police officer to fight corruption,” he said while fielding questions from Seyi Kehinde, the host.
The little boy said his remark in the video was to beg with Toluige Olokobi Babalola, his mother, not to administer disciplinary action on him.
He expressed pleasure about the popularity the video has brought to his family, while also praising his mother.
On her part, Toluige, who also featured on the Instagram live chat live said she never envisaged that the video clip — which was done out of pure fun — could become an internet sensation in the blink of an eye.
“It was God that destined it this way, I never envisaged it would fetch us such popularity,” she said.
She said the occurrence has put the spotlight on her family.
Asked how the video found its way online, Toluige said she had shared it with her sister in America to catch a glimpse of Ore’s trademark theatrics whenever she wants to spank him for wrongdoing.
She said unknown to her, her sister, who could also not contain her laughter after watching the video, shared it to a group she belonged to and consequently hit the internet.
She also disclosed that Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos state — who earlier requested to meet Ore — had already reached out to inform them he is working something out for him.
