- An old woman, Maa Adjoa, struggles to survive in a village after she is abandoned by her children
- Adjoa, a grandmother, says she has three sons and two daughters but that none of them has ever visited her since they left
- Though not happy, she covers her anguish with smiles while she struggles to survice the harsh reality of being alone.
No parent ever prays to end up like Maa Adjoa, a grandmother, whose five children, three sons and two daughters have long abandoned in a village.
Since the children left their mother, they have never returned, not even to see how she handles her challenges daily. She is lonely, yet smiles most times to hide her anguish as she survives each day in a village called Takorase.
Legit.ng understands that her story was brought to the fore by one Francis Matey who revealed that he and his workmates were sent on a National Identification Authority (NIA) mission at the village.
Francis explained that Maa Adjoa indicated that all her three sons and two daughters left her to live elsewhere in cities and have never even returned to pay her a visit.

The report notes that even though she looks frail physically, the old woman is still able to handle chores and carries on with little or no assistance.
The young man who helped to bring the issue to limelight described Afjoa as one who still has a lot of energy for various activities such as family, animal husbandry, and others.
Francis said he told the woman he wanted to be her friend and she was very excited about it.
"So I told her yomo (grandmum) I want to be your new friend. She happily and emotionally replied, 'My son, am also ever ready to be a friend to you.' So I told her to come let's have a picture together to symbolize a start for our fruitful friendship," Francis said.

It was gathered that the locusts are being boiled and fried for consumption.
