Sorie stayed with both parents until his father fell ill for a period of two years. His mother dealt in varieties of businesses to be able to pay the medical bills and up keep the family. By then they were still living in his grandfather’s house who used the money that was supposed to be used to offset the medical bills for himself, this angered Sorie’s father to rent an apartment where life became more difficult for the family.
His mother abandoned the family and things became worse to a point that Sorie could not even get food to eat. He had to rely on neighbors for some leftovers. One day Sorie went out to look for food as usual when he met with some boys who introduced him in gathering scrap metals for sale.
Sorie is in Junior Senior Secondary II and is attending Rural Academy Secondary School.
