Life lost its taste for Festus Njoku Abaka sometime in 1975 when he became disabled after a neighbour flogged him with a bunch of broom in anger. He said that on the fateful day, he was playing in the rain when he mistakenly soiled the rainwater a woman gathered.
Familiar face at stadium
From what I have gathered, the woman responsible for this had quarrel with my parents when we lived in Ikot-Ekpene in Cross River State then. Before the incident, I lived with my grandmother in our village in Arochukwu, Abia State.
I was born in 1971 and all I can remember was being among the children playing in the rain sometime in 1975 and a woman wiped me with a broom severally because according to her, I poured dirt into the water she fetched.
My parents actually took up the incident with the woman, fought physically with her for wiping me with what was considered spiritual broom and putting me into this condition. I cannot remember all the incidents that followed because I was still a child then.
How I became a cripple —Disabled teacher
This was because students who love me would return to school with large quantity of foodstuff that would last the whole term for me. As a senior student with enough money I made through sell of shoes, I always order two of my classmate girls to come and cook for me every day.
Finding a wife
She did not walk out of the relationship because of my condition because I was doing everything thing humanly possible to ensure that she feels happy as an applicant then.
On monthly bases, I spend not less than N7,000 on her outside feeding her even though she was living with her married elder sister. What brought us together was that we were close neighbours. She cooked for me.
Dumping him for not satisfying her sexually
I enjoyed every minute of the nearly two-year relationship I had with her. She was there for me when I underwent a surgery on my legs. We were so close that she will always jealously accuse of involving in a relationship with other ladies coming close to me.
