The NYSC Corp member in Abuja who of recent celebrated his father’s death on social media finally speaks on the reasons behind his action, he has come out to state why he thought the passing away of his dad was good news.
Over the past few weeks, the story of a serving corp member residing in Abuja, the capital terretory of Nigeria who mocked the passing away of his father and celebrated his demise surfaced on social media, he was trailed with criticism, abuse and mixed reactions from many social media users.
So he granted an interview to epress the reasons behind this rather strange words!
“Friday is for CDS….#Abjcoppa….And finally the great devil died last night….. R.I.P my useless father…..Just so happy we all saw ur death…. This is GOODNEWS.”
As he was speaking on a news interview, the young man idntified as Victor M Bills, who later deleted the post as a result of appeals from some of his friends opened up on why he thought the passing away of his father was a good news and reasons behind his obvious happiness over his father’s demise.
He said he was not in any way sorry for what he wrote on social media as the death of his father was an answered prayer, according to him, ever since his mother got separated from his Dad about 26 years ago, the man denied him the essential fatherly love he needed due to an unknown reason. See his words below!
“I can’t paint him white when I’m dying inside me. He always laughed and told me I would suffer and die before him. But the reverse is now the case… He wasn’t God.
“He deprived me of fatherly love… And still didn’t wish me well. So his death was a great relief to the family… I’m not regretting anything. My friends asked me to delete the post. But I don’t regret posting it.
“Now I wonder the kind of tribute the children will write for him and what people will know him for other than evil. I just pity him, because even at gunpoint I’ll never agree that he had an atom of love for me.
“He cursed me every time he saw me. We never had a loving time as father and son. I’m not fabricating stories. I’m telling you the truth. Don’t know why he hated me so much.
“Before now, anytime I met new friends I told them my dad was late so that they wouldn’t bring up topics about him. I always talked about my mum. So, when they saw my post about him, they were surprised I had a dad all the while. Even friends from secondary school.
“He didn’t attend his children’s wedding or even wished them well. Rather, he rained curses on them, just to frustrate them. Does such a man deserve to be given a befitting burial? He was heartless and never believed he would die soon.”
And Victor who hail from Imo State, Amaraku, Isiala Mbano precisely could not but celebrate his mother who continued with the responsibilities of taking care of him and his three siblings.
“I believe in the strength of thorough womanhood from my mum. I thought about how life would have been if my mother wasn’t hardworking and industrious. What if my mum had hooked up with another man after their separation. What would I have done?”
When he was asked if he would attend his father’s burial, he said he would not only be happy but more than happy to miss his burial and he would make sure his mother and siblings do not spare time to do same.
Before the interview came to an end, Mr. Victor said that with the post he shared on Facebook, he wish to use it as a medium to awaken every parent who treated their children in ill manners, may be because they were hurt by the scars meted to them by their spouses.
“Just trying to encourage my peers that if they hate any lass, they shouldn’t transfer their hatred to the children. Too bad that parents do so with belief that certainly the child will forgive them later in life, even after punishing such a child emotionally.”
