If you’re familiar with Nollywood movies from 20,30 YEARS ago, you remember this storyline – a character, A does something truly awful to another, B who suffers great loss. A gets away with what they’ve done. Till some years later when they run into a problem and a voodoo priest or pastor says A has offended/grieved someone in the past very deeply. And if A doesn’t seek out B and obtain their forgiveness, A will continue to suffer and even die. So A looks for B, sheds some crocodile tears and gets to move on with his/her life like nothing happened.
I always thought that was bullsh*t.
