A businesswoman in Aba, Abia State, Mrs. Ngozi Okoye has her stars to thank for narrowly escaping being lynched over the disappearance of a mysterious cat, suspected to be a product of witchcraft.
Ironically, she was the victim of the cat that was initially found in her home and it took the intervention of journalists and policemen to save her from a mob action.
Narrating her ordeal,Mrs. Okoye said for long, she had observed that money she kept in a firmly locked cardboard in her room at No.1 Obu Street/Obohia Road in Aba was always missing mysteriously.
The woman, who sells fruits near the Aba Shopping Centre, said at a point, she suspected her children and kept a watch on them.
But when she realized that her children were innocent, she reasoned that what was happening to her had spiritual undertone and reported the matter to a man of God.
