Couple in the dock for stabbing, rubbing pepper in 10-yr-old girl's private parts
A couple in Lagos are now in serious trouble for stabbing and pouring pepper into a 10-year-old girl's private parts.
The couple were said to be angry when their three year old daughter reported that the girl, identified as Chidinma who is now being treated at a private hospital, fiddled with her vagina while they were playing.
The couple who live in the same compound with the victim and her parents on Joshua Street, Agbabiaka, in the Ajangbadi area of Lagos, were said to be livid when their daughter reported Chidinma's action to them and rather than reporting her to her own parents, they dragged the girl into room and descended on her, beating her mercilessly before stabbing her private parts with a broken bottle.
According the victim's mother, her neighbour Eucharia had come to her on April 6, demanding that Chidinma followed her to her room to help her do something but a few minutes later, she heard the girl scream and on rushing to to the Oboh's apartment to find out what had happened to her daughter, she found that the door was locked while they beat up her daughter.
Not satisfied with just beating the girl, the 32-year-old Jerry and his 30-year-old wife allegedly stabbed her in her private parts as well as rubbing pepper in it to teach her a bitter lesson.
After committing the atrocious act, the couple were said to have fled the area and were later trailed and arrested by the police after the attack was reported at the Okokomaiko Police station and charged to court.
The police said that Eucharia, during interrogation, confessed to the crime, saying she became furious when the girl vehemently denied the allegation made by her three-year-old child.
