Taking to Facebook on Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 14, Mr. Zomo disclosed that his aunt sacrificed her life for her daughter-in-law’s.
According to him, the kidnappers wanted to kill her daughter-in-law to show the family how serious they were with the ransom demand but the deceased pleaded to be killed instead of the daughter-in-law.
“Aunty, Happy mother’s day to you. I celebrate you even in dead. You deserve this celebration and more. You died a hero. You were kidnapped with you only daughter and daughter in law,” he wrote.
“The kidnappers wanted to kill one of you to proof how serious they where about their demands. Your daughter in-law was picked but you pleaded to be killed instead and they killed you
“Ahh Aunty you have taught us a big lesson SACRIFICE. You sacrificed yourself for your children. This is the purest form of motherhood. She wasn’t up to a year as a daughter in law some mother’s would have preferred she is killed but no you were different
“Aunty keep resting with the Lord. We will always remember you and you act of bravery. You’re indeed a true mother.
You’re a hero. You deserve to be celebrated now and always. Happy mother’s day to you even in dead. We love and cherish every moment with you.”
