In Anambra State, a 72-year-old woman’s sexual organs and other body parts were hacked off and taken for money ritual purposes by her domestic staff, Onyebuchi Ezeh.
On Thursday, March 2, 2023, the incident occurred at Umunze, Orumba North Local Government Area of the state.
On Sunday, March 5, Chidimma Ikeanyionwu, the media assistant to the state Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Welfare, Hon. Ify Obinabo, revealed this to journalists.
She stated that the heinous crime was uncovered after the survivor raised the alarm after the suspect and two other guys attacked her in her home and severed her sexual parts, including her nipple, ear, and fingers, among other things.
According to the promises of the native doctor, the offender, who is a resident of Abakaliki in Ebonyi state, said he normally helps in trimming palm palms for the elderly survivor and stated that they began on the heinous deed because they want to gain money.
Hon Ify Obinabo paid a visit to the woman at the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital in Amaku Awka, where she is undergoing medical care.
During the visit, the commissioner expressed his regret at the development and stated that other people implicated in the crime will be caught and charged in court.
She committed to work with the police to ensure that justice is served and the criminals are brought to justice as soon as possible.
The suspect, Onyebuchi Ezeh, is now being held at the Anambra State Police Command Awka’s State Criminal Investigation Department and will be arraigned soon before the Children and Gender Based Violence Magistrate Court in Awka.
