A 72-year old woman’s sexual organs and other parts of her body were cut off and harvested by her domestic worker identified as Onyebuchi Ezeh, for money ritual purposes in Anambra State.
The incident happened in Umunze, Orumba North Local Government Area of the state on Thursday, March 2, 2023.
Chidimma Ikeanyionwu, the media assistant to the state Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Welfare, Hon. Ify Obinabo, disclosed this to journalists on Sunday, March 5.
She said the ugly incident was discovered after the survivor raised alarm when the suspect alongside two other men attacked her in her house and cut off her genital organs including nipple, ear, fingers among others.
The suspect, who was later caught, confessed that he and some others at large, committed the act on the instruction of a native doctor, who had promised to make them billionaires if they brought the required organs.
The culprit, who is a native of Abakaliki in Ebonyi state said he usually helps in cutting palm-trees for the aged survivor and explained that they embarked on the dastardly act because they want to get rich according to the assurances of the native doctor.
Hon Ify Obinabo, visited the woman at the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital Amaku Awka where she’s receiving medical attention.
Speaking during the visit, the commissioner expressed sadness over the development and assured that other persons involved in the crime would also be apprehended and charged to court.
She promised to work with the Police in making sure that justice is served and the perpetrators brought to book in the shortest possible time.
The suspect, Onyebuchi Ezeh is currently at the State Criminal Investigative Department of the Anambra State Police Command Awka and will soon be arraigned before the Children and Gender Based Violence Magistrate Court in Awka.
