Wana Udobang took to Twitter to recount a childhood memory that shocked her followers.
The poet recalled being forced by her father to taste his tea before he drank it. At first, she had no idea what his reason was but they later discovered relatives had told him his wife, Wana’s mother was trying to poison him, so, rather than make his wife taste the tea first, he chose to use his daughter as the sacrificial lamb.
Wana tweeted: “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.”
She added that her parents eventually went their separate ways.
When followers tried to sympathize with her, she said she’s over it and it’s now used as a family joke that her father tried to make her “the lamb for sacrifice.”
