WICKEDNESS! WOMAN PUTS CAMEROON PEPPER IN MAID’S PRIVATE PART FOR STEALING N26,000
A teenage girl, Precious Nwali was reportedly abused by her caretaker for supposedly stealing her N26,000 at Nzekwe Street, near Akwata meat market in Awka, Anambra state.
The victim, from Ebonyi state, was allegedly undressed and had red pepper applied on her private part by the care taker, Mrs Charity Effiong who later forced her away from the residence around 10.30pm. According to the Nation, It was gathered that the victim, a primary four student was later found by a good Samaritan while roaming and crying along the market alone at night.
Narrating her distress, the victim, who nursed series of marks on her body, said she had severally undergone violation in the hands of her caregiver. “She regularly beats me with cable wire. She has her own kids but she hardly flogs them nor sends them to any errand,” she sobs uncontrollably
Also speaking, the lady that picked her up, Mrs. Amaka Okoye, said it took her almost about thirty minutes to wipe off the grinded pepper in her private part. On his part, Pastor Effiong Inyang, who linked her up with the caretaker, said the victim’s parents demanded she stayed with her following the family’s condition.
He said, “All her sisters and brothers are being given out because her parents have no money. “The dad to the girl was said to have been under severe pain having nursed wounds after several falls from the palm tree.” He said he had already contacted the girl’s parents who had demanded that she be brought back to them.
Reacting, the Secretary, Anambra State Child Protection Network, Lady Hope Okoye, described the action as a total violation to the state child right act of 2004. “Stuffing black pepper in the girl’s private part is another level of harm which has psychological, physical and emotional consequences.
I don’t know why this should be swept under the carpet for a lady to stand to do this inhumane treatment on the little girl,” she noted. The Nation, however, learnt from a police source that the suspect had been kept on the order of the DPO in care of the Central Police Station, Awka.
“It was not long after the matter was reported in the police station that the care giver appeared, claiming the housemaid was kidnaped,” the source added. The Police spokesperson, Haruna Mohammed, confirmed the occurrence but said the defendant denied applying pepper in the victim’s private part.
He said she claimed that the girl stole the sum of N26,000 from her house, adding that she lifted her undies in the course of searching for the money.
He said, “She said the girl stole twenty six thousand which led her to raise her underwear so she can see whether she hid the money inside her underwear.”
Mohammed said the case was being investigated.
