The Oyo State Police Command came to the aid of a 75-year-old granny and her seven grandchildren found roaming the streets of Ibadan on Friday.
The old woman was intercepted by a patrol vehicle of the police command after members of the public raised the alarm that she could be involved in child trafficking or kidnapping.
The children's ages range between three and seven; they are a set of triplet and two sets of twins.
Their father, who died last year, was the woman's son while their physically challenged mother works as dish washer at a local canteen in the city.
The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Leye Oyebade, told a Punch correspondent that after investigations, it was discovered that the woman was looking for how to feed the seven children.
Two bags of rice, a bag of beans, several loaves of bread and other items were donated to the family.
The grandmother, Tutu Awoniyi, said she lived in a rented apartment in Gbagi area of Ibadan and that her last son, Olusola, was the father of the children.
The mother of the children, Kafayat, 30, said her husband died last year and that she and the children lived with the grandmother.
