The old man in his late 60s broke down uncontrollably as he gave out a testimony of how his wife was hacked to death on suspicions of being a devil worshiper. He could freshly remember like it was yesterday and coming into terms with her demise was proving to be too hard for him. The old man accompanied by his two daughters and a son-in-law were in a forum to share an incident that happened to them as a family. This is what happened; His wife and one of his daughters present were suspected by fellow villagers of being behind the sickness of the daughter of one of the villagers. According to them the constant convulsions that the girl was experiencing was due to the satanic activities of two. Then his daughter’s first born girl was a friend to the sick girl.
So one Sunday when they were in church the said girl passed out and was hurriedly taken to his daughter who was asked to walk out of the church as tension among the faithful was building up. Then a friend accompanied her home and advised her to run off to her parent’s home as there were plans to attack her anytime. She did as she was told but the said attackers who were her fellow villagers followed her to the parent’s home baying for her blood but she was saved from their wrath by the police. Though everything cooled own, she left the village and joined her husband in town for fear of being attacked in future.
After about 3 weeks the same villagers regrouped and at about mid night went to his daughter’s homestead and torched their entire house. Then they went ahead to her parent’s home where they took her mother and took her father hostage leading him away from home. Efforts for the families to get help from the police failed and her mother was hacked to death and their house set ablaze for being suspected of being a devil worshiper yet there was no evidence but only misplaced rumors.3 years had passed since the ugly incident yet the family had not got justice for the murder of the wife/mother even after having endless trips to the concerned authorities.
So they wanted to relieve their bleeding heart for all those years, and then get answers why the murder yet no had even come out to accuse her. Her daughter greatly regretted that she would have saved her mother if she had known she was exposed to any threat since all through all the loath was directed to her but not the mother. All this was in the national radio and the family agreed to forgive those who killed the beloved mother/mother but only if they came forward and asked for forgiveness. The old man with a heavy heart said that there is no way to repay for the love of life and it was hurting that he could even recognize the culprits.
