Other than to shout to his mother for food, Baba Agunua doesn't speak. His mother doesn't know his age, she says he's between 20 and 30. He lives with a serious mental health condition and has been chained to the root of a baobab tree for the last three years. His mother said he travelled to the south of the country to sell bracelets he had made, smoked marijuana with friends, and came home sick. His condition became worse. He became violent to the point where he tried to attack his mother with a machete. His father, since deceased, chained him the tree to prevent his aggressive behavior from causing harm.
