Your legs begin to decay little by little and if u go to hospital, u are definitely gon get amputated. “See how cheap it’s being sold for but highly expensive to treat.
God knows how many innocent souls he’s afflicted with this evil! Same goes for ‘agba’ that will destroy ur skin and kill u if u attempt going to a hospital for treatment. On top d suffering we dey endure here, evil men like this won’t still let u have peace!”
