Contrary to viral social media reports that Blessing ‘ran mad’ after an undefined encounter with ‘Yahoo Boys’, it appears the situation is deeper that what is seen at surface level.
An awry event took place in the Ijebu Ode area of Ogun State involving a young lady named Blessing who suddenly lost her sanity after being dropped by some suspected internet fraudsters driving a Lexus SUV along the Ogun-Lagos State expressway.
As she danced in public, speaking incoherently and playing around in a stinking gutter, many assumed that she was jinxed by ritualists.
zThis sounded believable due to the spate of ritual killings across Nigeria with youths desperate for quick money fingered in the criminality.
But people who have had personal ecounters with Blessing and her family members believe the media reports are false. They took to their social media accounts to reveal that the 300 level student of the department of Political Science, Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba in Ondo State who was on her way to Lagos State has been battling with mental crisis.
A graduate of her school explained that she must have had an attack while being conveyed to Lagos by the guys who might have panicked and decided to drop her on the road and zoom off to avoid further complications.
Further accounts on social media also corroborated the reports of her on and off incidents of mental imbalance which is also troubling her brother.
They explained that her family has sort orthodox treatment as well as spiritual intervention but all to no avail. The state of Blessing still remains unknown but she has been taken off the street by Good Samaritans.
