After making a girl mad for 12 hour, the same rooster soup which this paper reported about last week reportedly killed five ducks and a dog. It can be recalled that this paper on April 21, 2009 reported that a girl went mad for hours in the S K D Community on Bushrod Island after she tasted a rooster soup which she and her colleagues were preparing for their enjoyment.
The rooster was brought to their house as a gift to from Nimba County as a token of appreciation to her husband for services rendered to the people there, Mrs. Janet Williams Toe told The Informer.
It was tied for two days to get used to the yard – as customarily done - but died while reportedly fighting. Disposed of, girls in the house went for the dead roster to prepare ‘chicken pepper soup’. While boiling, one of them decided to have a taste of the sumptuous soup and subsequently ran into madness. She became conscious after she was taken to a prayer center after 12 hours, family members say.
However, after Baby Girl, as the girl is called, gained consciousness, community residents decided to give some of the soup to other animals to see what would be the effect; it subsequently claimed the lives of a dog, and five other duck fowls that ate portion of the soup.
The original owner of the rooster Mrs. Janet Williams Toe also averred that a day following the incident between the chicken soup and the girl and subsequent killings of a dog and five duck fowls, residents of the community were marveled and began to be careful of what to eat as far as chicken meat is concern, especially those from the interior of the country.
When quizzed, the former mad girl told this paper that she still feels indifferent since she had the misfortune with the Chicken soup.
Though she has begun seeking medical treatment at a local health center, where nurses are providing health care for her to regain full consciousness, she told this paper that nurses have yet to reveal the cause of her madness.
She has meanwhile made it her taboo to venture into eating chicken.
As a result of the situation, residents of the affected community are now skeptical to eating chicken, thus making chicken part sellers in the community to lose customers. Mrs. Toe said she is taking her times out to glorify God for rescuing her from the ‘voodoo’ that was infested into the chicken to have gotten rid of her entire family. She told this paper that she has also engaged into series of prayers for the perpetrator “who planned this evil deed against me to come to light one of these days.”
The issue of the rooster has created fear in most residents of the community to accept chicken from the hinterland of the country for whatever purpose. She pointed out that she will not accuse anyone of the act because there is no proof of any perpetrator, but will continue to prayer for God to bring to light the doer of the act.She told this paper that prior to the rooster being brought to Monrovia she had a dream in which she was given a rooster as a present for her wedding. The dream, she said, was interpreted by a colleague, warning her to be mindful of gifts during her wedding period.
