Confined to a wheelchair, the young man tried to pick up his life but was fast with challenges on all sides. Victor who lost his dad two years before the ugly encounter with the senior student became an orphan as his mother passed away six years later.
"My Dad died two years before the painful incident and I lost my mum, who was my pillar and backbone six years later. Life felt meaningless and worthless."
He had to failed attempts at love
Victor said he was forced to leave his village to a disabled home in Anambra state where he stayed for three years. His first lover left him after promising to persevere in good and bad times, a decision Victor didn't blame her for.
In his words:
"Who will blame her? Who can vow to stay with a paraplegic man like me forever?"
Another lady who he thought was the real deal did far worse. Victor lamented how she also vowed to be with him only to abscond with his money, leaving the disabled man shattered.
"A year later, she didn't only steal my heart, she stole the little money I had and disappeared like dust. Having been through difficulties, I must confess, it hurt me so bad, but I couldn't give up."
Luck with love finally smiled on him unexpectedly
His situation was worsened by a caregiver he hired. Victor said the caregiver would always maltreat him for reasons he couldn't fathom.
The man said he would later meet the love of his life who happened to be a friend to his 'wicked' caregiver. She had come around on a visit and that kickstarted their friendship turned relationship.
He appreciated the lady for loving him, describing her as his spine.
"I maybe disabled, but in you my love, I have found my ability. I walk with a broken spine, but you are my spine and I stand with you. Thank you for loving an ordinary disabled man from a small village, who has nothing to offer unconditionally. With you, there is no obstacle in life, I can't face."
Juliet Harrison opined:
"So pathetic. May God pay the so called senior who kept you in that condition in his own coin.
"And may God bless your wife to be.
"You both shall succeed together."
Happiness Deborah Dennis stated:
"So touching by your story, this is pure love no greater.your new home is over blessed. Congratulation to you both."

In other news, Briefly News previously reported that in 2016, Odiwuor Peter noticed that a particular person constantly liked his Facebook posts and commented on them. He often shared sermons and encouraging texts on his timeline but did not know a particular lady was watching him.
One day Peter slid into her DMs, seeking to know more about her. He soon found out that the lady was in a relationship, but it wasn't stable.
Peter was also going through a strenuous relationship, and they both bonded over that. Linet also revealed to Peter that she had no legs and one hand. She lost both her legs to a strange disease that led to the amputation but had been born without her left hand.
