My job keeps me outside all the time,hence, i was not able to monitor my children activities effectively.I lost their mother late last year and my own mother recently.

Prior to this time, my daughter was having symptoms of sickness and we had earlier treated her medically. Immediately, she told us how Mr Nwokoro forced her to be sleeping with him,we approached him but he denied the allegation. He later admitted after members of Agbor Gha Ihun were invited. I want justice to prevail.”
