Sometimes, a lot of people wonder why people will decide to be so cruel and mean? For the family of Mr Ogbonnaya Ani in Umuose Urobo in the Uburu area of Ohaozara LGA of Ebonyi State, life can’t be more cruel than having seven members of the household being afflicted with madness one after the other.
Ogbonnaya Ani’s elder brother’s daughter is said to be mentally challenged. His younger brother’s son is in the same condition. Three of his own children; a male and two females, are equally afflicted. His daughter-in-law was not left out too.
So, there are six mentally ill persons in the family and, perhaps, still counting. Worst still, one of Ani’s mentally challenged daughters is heavily pregnant and no one seems to know who impregnated her…
It was revealed that before his first wife died, she allegedly exhibited some signs of madness.
There is no doubt that the madness reportedly ravaging his immediate and nuclear families, which has left him in a very sad mood.
The man looked frail and his voice quakes in palpable agony as he spoke. But for the magnanimity of a relation, Mr Ani and his household would not have had a place to lay their heads. This is because his mentally challenged son, Igwe Ani, alias Martin Martin, set his house ablaze. And before help could come, the structure was already reduced to ashes.
