Strange Man at Iri
Valerie Ete has lost everything she ever held close to her heart. Since she clocked 18, along with her twin brother, one unfortunate event after the other, seemed to follow her about. First, it is the death of her parents, loss of inheritance to greedy relatives, then rape, after rape. And when she wouldn’t take the abuse anymore, she did the unthinkable. She fought back, wickedly. After committing murder, one cannot expect to be backed by the law. The police will lock her up. Or, the mob might kill her first, without listening to any explanation for her wicked act. Valerie takes off, leaving Warri, in an evening bus, for Lagos. But again, another unfortunate event takes place. And instead of Lagos, she finds herself lost in a thick jungle. A wild animal roams the forest at night, every full moon, keeping her alert and on her toes. Valerie Ete wouldn’t give up. At least, not after she found a stranger who knows the answers to all of her problems.
