A young, 3-year-old toddler in Nigeria was subjected to witchcraft and then was constantly beaten up by her parents.
This news emerged out after a corper( A Nigerian Youth Involved in the National Youth Service Corps, Nigeria) reported this heinous activity to a blogger in Gistmania.com along with the photographs.
The corper described the grisly behavior of the parents to their own daughter. He claimed that the daughter had been living in misery. The NYSC corper serving in Nnewi, Anambra, claimed that the parents is doing so because they think that the girl is a witch. He was distressed to know that the little girl at that age has passed through a lot and living in an agony where other kids enjoy childhood and play.
The corper continued his heartbreaking story by claiming that he had seen bruises and lacerations all over the girl’s body daily. He told me that the girl is beaten on a daily basis. The girl hadn’t received proper food for a long time. The girl seemed to be malnourished and is skinny.
He told that one day they found the girl hiding behind the toilet of corper’s lodge, possibly fearing the insane amount of whacking and torture. The people at youth corp even had talked about this with their parents, but the thing hadn’t been smoothed. The girl is still being smacked and tortured.
The neighborhood is trying to reach out to the authorities for proper help and apparent rescue of the girl. The corper believed that the girl will eventually die following this abhorrent abuse.
The little girl’s name is Sarah, and she lives with her parents in Nnewi, Anambra, Amichi, NCCF NYSC family house.
