The African society is one such that children are enforced to be obedient to their parents no matter the abuse they face at their hands or how their actions can be detrimental to the child’s well being.
However, not every young child is able to endure constant abuse from their parents and they finally decide to do something about it.
Well, some brave teenagers have been able to take the bull by its horns and leave their abusive parents even when there is no hope for a better life in sight.
A young Nigerian lady identified as Ms Alice (@happybbb) on Twitter, took to the microblogging site to hail her mother a hero while narrating how she left her abusive father and step mother at the tender age of 16.
According to Alice, her mother ran away from an abusive father and stepmother at age 16 and decided to join the army.
Alice said her mother fought at the front lines during the Liberian war and met her husband at the age of 21.
Alice’s mother reportedly left the army after she was pregnant with her second child during an on-going war and knew she could not go back. Rather than resting on her laurels, the strong woman decided to take GCE exams and applied to the University of Lagos.
She reportedly wrote her final exams while heavily pregnant and later bagged her Masters, got a PGD and led an outpatient pharmac*y at LUTH.
Not ready to stop doing big things anytime soon, Alice said her mother decided to move their whole family to Canada because she wanted them to have the best.
Alice said that while her mother is now a certified pharmacist in Canada, she also works at a auto shop in her spare time where she disassembles truck engines and send to Nigeria for her business.
Explaining further, Alice said her mother actually spent two months in Lagos to learn how to disassemble engines herself.
Alice then called her mother a bad as*s and a superhero and many Twitter users also agreed with her.
