BREAKING: 72-year-old woman’s genitals harvested by domestic help for money rituals

A shocking incident has occurred in Umunze, Orumba North Local Government Area, where a 72-year-old woman was allegedly attacked and had her genitals and other body parts harvested by her domestic help and some accomplices for the purposes of money rituals. The domestic help, identified as Onyebuchi Ezeh, was said to have acted on the instruction of a native doctor who promised to make them rich if they provided the required items.

Reports indicate that the victim was rescued by neighbors who took her to the hospital for medical attention. According to Chidinma Ikeanyionwu, the media assistant to the commissioner for women affairs and social welfare, the victim is currently recuperating at the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University where the commissioner, Mrs. Ify Obinabo visited her.

The incident was discovered after the survivor raised alarm on Thursday, according to Ikeanyionwu. The victim’s worker and two other men allegedly broke into her home, cut off her genital organs, nipple, ear, fingers, and other body parts. The culprit, Onyebuchi Ezeh, was later caught and confessed to the crime, stating that they were sent by a native doctor to obtain the organs from the 72-year-old victim to become billionaires.

It was gathered that the suspect hails from Abakaliki in Ebonyi state and usually helped the victim in cutting palm-trees. He reportedly explained that they embarked on the gruesome act because they wanted to get rich, according to the assurances of the native doctor.

The incident has been met with outrage and condemnation from various quarters. The commissioner for women affairs and social welfare expressed her sadness over the development and assured the victim that all persons involved in the crime would be apprehended and charged to court.

The culprit is currently being held 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. The incident has brought to the forefront the issue of money rituals in Nigeria, and the need for society to take more proactive measures to address it. It is important for individuals to be cautious of the promises of native doctors and to always seek legitimate means of earning a living.
