Read his post below:
”Rest on dearest. “Comrade I just think I will d.i.e” Vera Grand.
I met this beautiful lady towards the end of 2019. She walked close to and called loudly “Comrade Joe” as I stood close to the customer care upstairs at GT Bank Airport Road Effurun.
She told me she has been my follower on Facebook after I posted a story of a 13 year old girl who was drowned in a bucket of water and r.a.p.e.d by her step father at Jakpa Road.
According to Vera, none of my posts whether good or bad pass her phone screen without liking or commenting on it which I noticed over time.
We moved from becoming virtual to actual friends. We exchanged contact and off course interact most times on phone. When she told me about a thought which always come to her that she would die.
