Sins of Saviours
The expose dubbed, Sins of Saviours that was to air September 1st 2019 documented the untold suffering of the vulnerable children in the hands of their protectors who have turned them into a money-minting venture, embezzling funds with reckless abandon.
The investigations unearthed a scheme in which the state agency tasked with taking care of vulnerable children in the country are instead using the vulnerable children for profit, subjecting them to more misery and minting millions in the process.
