“Even when people told me that he went to my house at odd hours when I am not around, I still believed he went there to see to the welfare of my family.
“But I was shocked when three young men from our village came to look for me where I was fishing to tell me that Obong Idung (Village Head), wanted me to come home as fast as I could. “I thought our village had been attacked by our neighbours in Cross River State, so I hurried home, only to meet Elder Ndarake in the full view of people, Unclad and stuck inside my wife’s private part. “If not for people that restrained me, I would have macheted him to death because I was very angry. Though people said I placed Mbiam (Powerful traditional charm) on my wife, I did not such thing. It was our gods that wanted to disgrace them.
