Young Girl Battered By Her Stepsister In Benue (Photo)
A young girl in Benue state has been hospitalized after being brutalized by her stepsister.
Ukan Kurugh, a human rights activist who shared the story online, stated that the young girl identified as Ngohol was rescued from the hands of her stepsister, who allegedly physically abused her, on Saturday, September 11.
Her offence, according to Ngohol, was that she closed the door on her stepsister’s finger.
”At about 2:37 pm, on Saturday, 11th September 2021, I received a distress call. It was a case of physical abuse of a minor, Ngohol Sonter (exact age not known) by her step-sister, Wasen Sonter (names have been changed).
Ngohol was that afternoon severely beaten by her step-sister for allegedly not shutting her mouth, thereby revealing happenings at home to neighbours and whoever cares to listen to her.
She was not fortunate that day because concerned neighbours tried to talk her stepsister into avoiding the temptation of abusing the little girl. The abuse, which left the minor with bruises all over her body, is coming shortly after Ngohol was beaten for allegedly closing the door against the finger of one of her step-sister’s children.
Angered by words from neighbours, Wasen took Ngohol into her room, closed the door, and gave her the beating of her life.
Ngohol said she receives beating severally in the hands of her stepsister daily, though not as bad as that of Saturday.
She is on admission to a private hospital in Makurdi. Doctors at the facility are suspecting a case of dislocation in one of the hands.
It is a clear case of abuse as it is beyond a child’s discipline. My boss Dr. Mrs Helen Teghtegh had put a call to NAPTIP who came and picked the lady in question to their office while the girl is to continue with her recovery and we are possibly gonna be handing her over to the agency tomorrow officially when she is discharged.”
