Where is the world heading to ? This is a question I ask myself everyday. Now I understand what the bible means by saying that money is the root of all evil. People go any extent now just to make money. Do not forget that this life is an assignment and we must all be accountable for it.
This brings me to the story of Benson John , an indigene of rivers state who travelled to Asaba, Anambra to pretend as a mad man.
According to an eyewitness , Benson John is a notorious mad man in the streets of Asaba. But the cat was let out the bag in concerning him when he was caught changing from his normal cloth to a mad man’s cloth.
After series of Interrogation , he confessed that he wasn’t actually mad but his pretence as a mad man was to fulfill a three years task given to him by a native doctor in other for him to be rich. He said that he actually go into ritual killings but the native doctor told him that he doesn’t need to kill anyone that he should just pretend as a mad man for three years and he would become extremely wealthy.
When his family was finally contacted , they said that he has been missing for two years now and nobody knew his whereabout.
