Mordi Stanley, an embattled youth, has ran away from home for his dear life as the of his community, Owa-Alero, in Ika North East Local Government, Delta State, Nigeria, King Okafor Uche has threatened to sacrifice him(Mordi Stanley) to the gods.
Mordi Stanley was a victim of an obsolete and devilish law of his community, Owa-Alero which sees as a crime the birth of a single male child. By the law of the community, Mordi Stanley must be sacrificed to the gods, because his father did not have another son.
Our reporters gathered that after Mordi Stanley father’s death, the elders of Owa-Alero Community disclosed to the monarch and people that Mordi Stanley would be sacrificed by the gods.
It was reported that Mordi Stanley was advised to run for his dear life. A member of the community who chose not to mention his name revealed that the evil practice was introduced by the traditional ruler of Owa-Alero Community who is a Muslim, adding that it was the King who introduced the evil law many years ago, that whoever gives birth to only one male child, that male child would be sacrificed to the gods, a development that has been condemned by many.
The community member further said that he only option for Mordi Stanley is for him to give birth to a boy. He therefore appealed to Mordi Stanley to remain wherever he is, until the issue is settled.
