According to Miss Chidinma Ikeanyionwu, the media assistant to the commissioner for women’s affairs and social welfare, the victim is currently receiving treatment at Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, where the commissioner, Mrs. Ify Obinabo, paid her a visit.

The incident came to light when the survivor raised alarm on Thursday. One of her workers alongside two other men stampeded her in her house and cut off her genital organs including nipple, ear, fingers among others. The culprit, Onyebuchi Ezeh, who was later caught, confessed that they were sent by a native doctor to get the needed organs of the 72-year-old woman in order to become billionaires.

Ezeh, who hails from Abakaliki in Ebonyi state and usually helps the victim in cutting palm-trees, explained that they embarked on the act because they wanted to get rich according to the assurances of the native doctor. The incident has led to his detention at the State Criminal Investigation Department of the Anambra State Police Command in Awka, and he will be presented before the Children and Gender Based Violence Magistrate Court in Awka for trial in the near future.
