Around 10:30 pm on October 11, 2018, a Facebook User, Progress Oberiko narrated the touching story of a family plagued with the disease of madness, wandering the streets of Ogoja, Rivers State via her Facebook page.

A Nigerian lady identified as Progress Oberiko, a Delta State Polytechnic graduate, shared on Facebook the story of a weird family consisting of husband, wife, and three beautiful children plagued with insanity in Ogoja.

This happens to be the weirdest situation I’ve experienced in my entire life.

I have been trying to take a shot for the past five months and whenever I tried, something would just happen – they either walk past too quickly, change direction, or not just close enough.

Sometimes I may be on a bike and whenever I ask the cyclist to slow down so I can vividly look at them, he’ll be like “Hmmm, Abeg o, I nor fit stop this bike make u snap o, if the madman catch u, your own Don finish be that ooo!”

And that’s how it went on.

The first time I saw them here in Ogoja, my heart melted, and somehow furiously angry. And my mind wandered, trying to hazard a guess, searching for an answer as to why on earth – a whole family, husband, wife, and three beautiful children would be plagued with INSANITY.

WHY!

The curiosity was burning down deep my heart and could not be contained, then I began to ask questions. Anytime I drove past them in a car or on a bike, I engage the driver or someone in a conversation about them.

I have seen them trekking unimaginable distances under the scorching sun, I’ve also met them in the market making enquiries about where they could buy a particular item.
“They’re never separated, always found walking together, complete family.

But the intriguing part is their communication. Jeez! This “MAD” family speak CORRECT QUEENS ENGLISH. They flow in CLEAN grammar. Na this one dey burst my head.

I’ve heard the man instructing one of his children who was walking sluggishly behind him as they trekked down the road; “Hey Dorcas, will you hurry up, C’mon girl, meet up with the pace”. And I marvelled.

At the market he asked someone for directions and he went; “Hey ma’am, Pls where can I get this and this.”

As you can see their dreadlocks is twisted, showing that it has lasted for God knows how long. This means that this madness nor be today. E Don tay!

A conversation ensued between him and his wife one day and it turned into an argument, people were listening; you’ll be so shocked when you hear what the content of their argument was.”
