The government of Cross River in partnership with the Federal Neuro Psychiatric Hospital, Calabar, have come to the aid of the family of five suffering from mental disorder.
The attention of government was caught after the story of the mentally deranged family went viral following a successive write up by Progress Oberiko, a serving corp member in the state.
Doctors confirmed that Mr. Ben is suffering from a mental disorder while his wife is only having the ‘folie a deux’ – syndrome as a result of her husband’s ideation.
Commissioner for Health, Dr. Inyang Asibong, confirmed that their children are in stable condition as they’re responding to treatment.
Dr. Inyang further disclosed that the family will be rehabilitated and reintegrated into the society with continuous medical care and social welfare.
In addition to the medical care being provided by the State Government, the family will be offered a psycho-social support.
The state Commissioner for Women Affairs, Mrs. Stella Odey, confirmed this, adding that the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Social Welfare had already provided feeding and accommodation to the couple with adequate medical care.
Meanwhile, this great feet could not have been achieved if not concern shown by Progress Oberiko (credit to her).
We appreciate God for saving this family and pray for his abundant blessing upon all who played good role.
