“But my boyfriend told me that when I die, I will also be put among them so I should not be afraid because they are gone and cannot move or come out anymore”. These were the words of Abena, who lives with her boyfriend at the cemetery.
Now, the young lady is able to cope from day to day even as she looks forward to a day when they will be presented with an opportunity to leave the dead and join the living.” That was what 20 year old Abena said as her reason for living in the cemetery with her boyfriend.
With no money to afford a better place to stay, she and her boyfriend are living among their ancestors.
According to Abena who spoke in an interview, she used to live with her mother at Ablekuma but love somehow pursuaded her to move in with her boyfriend who used the cemetery as his abode.
Abena added that she is no longer scared and will continue to stay with her boyfriend for as long as she wanted because she was completely in love with him.
