BIAFRA; 11YEARS IN PRISON WITHOUT TRIAL; THE ORDEAL OF A BIAFRAN MOTHER
TheBiafraPost : (The Untold Story)
Recently when I visited Bayelsa for a meeting, I was delayed in a park and while waiting for my friend, I decided to go into a restaurant; I waited patiently in that restaurant with just a can of water. Shortly; a car parked in front of the restaurant and gorgeous women alighted. The two of them had sun glasses and walked in majestically into the restaurant, seated just behind me and I declined to take notice of them. I maintained focus; having a lookout through the window of the restaurant. The restaurant attendant approached the women like they did to me; and they ordered for fried rice, salad, chicken and juice. I was careful to making sure nobody noticed my attention; the attendant served them and they coyly got on it. I was not hungry so I did not bother looking at the dish or savoring; but when my mind came back on their table; they had finished eating; but what was left was still enough to make another launch.
Their handkerchief carefully took care of their wet soft hands; it was time to rest and I tarried, but I was getting uncomfortable with my stay. I could remember that I told my friend I will be in Bayelsa before 2 O’clock. But just as I was thinking; I overheard one of the women say that she can’t endure her loneliness any further. She complained that her husband has been away for more than two months for his business in Canada. She went further and bitterly complained to her friend how she is suffering as a result of her heart that grows fonder. That moment; I inhaled remarkably, I just remembered that another innocent woman has been in dirty Nigerian prison for 11 years now. I just remembered that she was arrested and taken into the prison when she was pregnant and she passed through labour in the prison. She gave birth in that same prison and nursed her child; her problem was larger than world, I just stood and walked away because I dont want to hear the woman complain over her heaven, when I know of another woman in hell.
