Journalist, Wana Udobang took to Twitter to recount a childhood memory that shocked her followers. The poet recalled being forced by her father to drink his cup of tea.
At first, Wana said she had no idea why her father pressured her to drink the tea but that his reason was clear only after she had drank the tea. It turns out that her father’s relatives had instigated him, having told him that his wife – Wana’s mother had poisoned the tea.
Yielding to their mischief, Wana’s father sought to find out the truth by asking her to take a drink from the tea first. rather than make his wife taste the tea first.
“I randomly always remember my father asking me to drink his tea under duress cos I didn’t exactly like tea as a child.
“Only to find out a few mins later that his relatives had told him my mother put poison in the tea.
Memories are such a wonderful thing.”

When followers tried to sympathize with her, she said she’s over it and it is now used as a family joke that her father tried to make her “the lamb for sacrifice.”
