I used my three children for blood money – Akara seller

While nosing around for news as usual, I stumbled on this report on Ascology news.
Residents of Asaba and Oko towns in Oshimilli South Local
Government Area of Delta State were stunned last weekend when a popular
akara (bean cake) seller in Oko revealed that the cause of her thriving
business was the death of her three children.

Felicia (surname withheld) reportedly confessed to the
horrendous act last Friday at a programme organized by a
miracle-performing Prophet Kings Maidoh of the Divine Mandate Ministry
in Asaba, the Delta State capital.

Eyewitness
account of the drama said the sordid details of Felicia’s booming
business came to light when Prophet Maidoh suddenly halted the service
and called a widow who sells akara. He told the thousands of
worshippers that the widow visited a herbalist, who gave her a charm
that suddenly gave her business the push that made the woman, who lost
her husband around 2006, one of the richest akara sellers in Nigeria.
Apparently overwhelmed by the unmistakable allusion, Felicia mounted the podium and told her heart-wrenching story. She
was quoted as saying: “I started selling akara at various motor parks
in Onitsha and Asaba, and I was taken to a native doctor, who prepared a
charm for me to boost my business
and increase my fortune.While her business started booming, she confessed that her children – two boys and a girl – died on the same day.”

Ironically, the death of the children coincided with an astronomical boom of her business.
