Recall that a few months back, Chacha Eke bared her soul, recounting a manic episode that took hold of her. She shared the harrowing details of wandering through the streets, hotels, and beaches of Lagos for days, even using a fabricated ID to embark on a boat journey to Ghana. Chacha Eke revealed that one early morning, around 3am, she had awoken in a state of distress, feeling unsafe in her own home. Fueled by this unease, she fled to a motor park in Asaba and subsequently made her way to Lagos.

Reflecting on this tumultuous period, Austin Faani candidly narrated an incident where his wife startled him up by shattering a mirror at 1 am. According to her, she saw that people were coming out of the mirror, prompting her to break it.

In the face of Chacha’s escalating condition, Austin Faani detailed the steps he took to seek solace and assistance. He recounted how he went from jumping from one prayer house to another to realizing that Cha Cha’s problem was purely medical.
