13-year-old Ovey Friday whose step mum accused of witchcraft after coniving with her native doctor, went ahead to pour coals of fire on his both hands, has lost them after the amputation of the left hand and the right hand left with permanent deformity.
Charity Daniel’s Blog had earlier reported the previous incidence of the said boy. Read after this post below.
The stepmother had accused him of sleeping with her in the dream and she needed him to confess and also get the spirit out of him so she took him to her native doctor in Wulko Community, Nasarawa Eggon Local Government Area, Nasarawa State where hot coals were placed on his tied hands. The incident led to a permanent deformity of his right hand while the left hand was amputated at an Abuja hospital yesterday November 14th.
Spokesperson of the Nasarawa state Ministry of Youths, Eche Amos, who shared the news on his Facebook page this morning, said the suspects have been arrested by the Police and will soon be charged to court for ”culpable homicide.”
To the glory of God, 13-year-old Ovey Friday, a victim of domestic violence from Wulko Community, Nasarawa Eggon Local Government Area, Nasarawa State, had a successful operation at Cedar Crest Hospitals, Abuja(all expenses paid).
His left hand was amputated below the elbow to save his life.
Ovey, whose biological mother is now late, was accused of witchcraft by his step-mother who alleged that the teenager was making love to her in her dreams, an allegation the young boy repeatedly denied.
He was then taken for exorcism where, with the collusion of a native doctor, Ovey’s hands were tied together and coals of fire poured on them to force him to confess to the allegation, yet, he claimed his innocence.
The effect of the burns led to Ovey’s (left) hand’s amputation and permanent deformity on the other(right) as it had degenerated into gangrene.
While Ovey’s father, Friday Dio, an okada rider based in Lagos is yet to surface since this incident happened, all the suspects involved in this abominable act have been arrested by the Police and will soon be charged to court for culpable homicide.
Efforts are underway to fix a prosthetic hand for him.
This is an expensive task, but HUMANITY will always be first!!!
