According to LeadersNg, it was pandemonium and endless drama in old port
Harcourt town waterside as a woman identified as Grace Amadi by her
neighbors ran mad this Friday afternoon after making a shocking
discovery that her husband of 6 years and father to her 2 children had
died since 2002.
A source told LeadersNg that Mrs Grace and her husband whose name was
given as Tony had been married since 2010 and have been living
peacefully with their 2 daughters who were both conceived in 2011 and
Mr Tony had left for his job normally this morning and today was
supposed to be a normal day in their lives until she received a visitor
in the late hours of the morning who claimed he was a distant relative
of Tony. The visitor’s exact conversation with Grace could not be
extracted from either of them as the visitor left shortly before Mrs
Grace began to scream in disbelief and rage, several times throwing
herself on the floor to induce injuries. A source at the scene says
neighbors gathered round and saw old pictures of Tony lying on the
floor, apparently left behind by the visitor for Mrs Grace.
The source was also shocked at the pictures left behind, one was wedding
ceremony pictures of Tony and another woman dated May 2000, another was
a car accident wreckage which had allegedly killed Tony, another was
Tony’s remains lying in an open casket apparently depicting his funeral
dated July 2002, the last one was a picture of a grave headstone
carrying the full name and the dates of birth and death. The mystery
remains, how is someone who had died in 2002 alive and well and even
remarried with children?
Attempts were made to reach Mr Tony by phone but they all proved
abortive as his number was not reachable. A delegation of neighbors were
sent to his office to retrieve Mr Tony but the delegation returned
empty handed and revealed that Mr Tony never arrived at the office that
morning as he drove out for work from his house.
Mrs Grace had since be taken to a local prayer house for spiritual
treatment against the advice of a psychiatric home while her children
are being looked after by her neighbors as they look on confused. Maybe
one day they will be old enough to be told that their father had died
before they were born.
