  2. Haba, just because of 6,500, can’t she confirm from her husband first, I hope the government should give her a thorough judgement

  3. Even if the boy stole her 1Million, is that enough to flog him to death? I don’t know why Igbo women are mean to children especially ones that are not theirs? You will pay the price of manslaughter madam 6,500

  4. Just imagine how the poor boy just died because of 6500 which even turned out it’s not the boy that took the money. What a life quick to judge when it’s not yours if it’s her son she would have just punished him and given him chance to talk.

  5. Imagine you see she should have ask properly before beating the girl for the boy to give up to ghost rip

  6. by my own thought i thinking the woman is holding a grudge against the boy but seriously that woman is a witch
