A very incredible story published in a Liberian newspaper on Sunday claims that a mother watched her 2-month old baby grow into ‘a full grown man’ in seconds before running into the bush with her lappa (clothing).
According to Daily Observer, 16-year old mother Lorpu Kollie told their reporter that she was going to the farm with her baby (identified by family members as Smith Freeman) tied to her back, when he suddenly spoke up, instructing her to put him down immediately.
At first, she said she ignored the call, but on reaching the crossroad, the boy repeated his demand to be put down. She claims that once she put him down, Freeman began to transform before her very eyes into a ‘full grown man.’
On completing his insane metamorphosis, Freeman told her that he was leaving the house because his grandmother (her mum) is always raining insults on him. Then he took her lappa and made his way into the bush.
Incredibly, Kollie’s family members are corroborating her story, reports the newspaper. Her village has already taken precautions, as traditional rulers have instructed everyone with farms around the bush the boy went into not to go there for a few days until the situation is well understood.
Many social commenters have already blasted the story as too incredible to be true, with many others threatening to boycott Daily Observer for publishing such an ‘irresponsible’ ‘trash’.
Other readers accused Kollie and her family members of using the story to cover up the baby’s murder.
