A wealthy man named Mr. Fabian Onwunka, who stays abroad moved back to Nigeria to establish his business. He married Mrs. Juliana Onwunka, started a family together the union was blessed with two lovely children, Clara and Joseph Onwunka. Years later Clara and Joseph finished their secondary education, while Clara gained admission into university, Joseph was seeking for admission. Three years after Clara’s admission in the university, her brother Joseph also gained admission into the university but a different one from Clara’s. Their parents were so happy, they prayed for him, advised him to stay away from bad groups and that’s a typical African parents way.
Preparations were being made for him as they were too excited as he was becoming an undergraduate.
As these preparations was going on, Joseph and his mother decided to visit the market together to get all other things he would be needing that his father forgot to get for him. After what seems like forever to Joseph as he was getting tired of buying, moving from one shop to another, pricing every item low, his mother pretending they were too expensive and later going back to buy them, they finished buying and headed home to rest. His mother was busy laughing at him on their way home, because of his tired expression and also explained how important it was for him to learn this for future sake. Also Joseph didn’t see the need for his mother telling all her friends at the market of his admission as some their children were still seeking for admission but his mother said it’s a thing of joy.
On getting home, his mother remembered she forgot her purse at the last shop they bought his cooking gas from, she called Joseph and described the shop to him and asked the driver to take him down but he refused because he wanted to take a long stroll around before leaving for school.
As he got to the market, the woman already sighted him; she beckoned at him and gave him the purse. She also congratulated him more on his admission and gave him a small cooking pot as a gift for school. He was really happy; he thanked her so much as he was very grateful for it. So as he turned to leave, he saw some guys running towards him being chased by some policemen, he was about rushing into the shop for safety, the policemen started shooting without acknowledging the fact that innocent people might be hurt, one of the bullet hit Joseph on his head and he died instantly on the spot.
At home Joseph’s mum felt something strange “mother’s instincts”, she was not comfortable, goose bumps were all over her skin and a sudden cold, immediately she called Joseph he wasn’t picking up. From the noise coming Joseph’s pocket, they realized he had a phone on him and saw the calls from his mother. They contacted the family and explained everything to them while his body was deposited at the morgue.
Clara’s parents couldn’t take the news, his mother blamed herself for killing her only son while their father developed a strange sick from there which led to his death few months after his only son was buried. Things were not the same for this family again, the elders and brothers of the deceased seized the whole properties and have Clara and her weak mother thrown out from their house as they tagged her witch.
