Hear her: “I called my mother to discuss some vital family issues with her, but with her response, I ended the call, because I sensed she might be very tired.
“Before I ended the call, she told me that she would come to our family house along Deeper Life Road in Boji-Boji, where I reside with my other siblings.
“But, after about 30 minutes, my instinct told me to call her again, so that I could tell her what I wanted both of us to discuss the following morning. Then I put a call across to her for the second time.
“Immediately she picked the call, what I started hearing was her screaming for help. I tried all I could to reach out to my relations at Abavo for them to go to our family house to see what was wrong with her, but, all efforts to reach them proved abortive.
“It was the next morning that we found my mother’s burnt corpse and the razed building.” she said.
