A Nigerian mother’s post caused a bit of panic on Instagram on Sunday (read here) as a great number of people, including celebrities, tried to reach out to her for fear that she might do something rash and irrevocable.
Jane Akwaugo Ikenna, a mother of four, wrote on Instagram:
If I am no more, please reach out to my innocent triplets+1, they are unlucky to arrive in an evil family.
Friends immediately tried to reach out to her but her phone was not reachable and they also couldn’t reach her at home. Concerned people then took to social media to try to reach out to her.
Jane has now replied hours after her post sent people into panic.
Jane, whose husband allegedly abandoned with their four kids so he could be with his side chic who he recently bought a car for, said she is fine now. She then went on to thank everyone who worried about her.
She revealed that her kids haven’t stayed with their father for over a year. She said she sometimes leaves home very early in the morning and returns late at night after her kids have gone to bed so as to avoid having them ask her where their daddy is.
Yesterday, when the kids asked for their daddy, she says she told them that God is their dad.
She also added that finances are a bit tight for them and she escapes from home to avoid her kids asking her to buy things for them.
But she assured those concerned about her welfare that she’s fine now because her dad has stepped in to take care of her.
She, however, warned that some people have created fake bank accounts in her name, asking people to donate towards her and her children.
