Woman Inserts Stick And Pepper Into Niece’s Private Part For Stealing Garri And Fish


The Delta State Police Command has apprehended a woman, Mercy Oba, who attacked her niece for stealing garri and fish.

The incident occurred at their family compound in Isiokolo, Ethiope East council area of the state on Saturday, March 19.

Reports have it that when the suspect caught the victim, tampering with her garri and fish in her room she began to beat her.


When the girl’s blind mother heard the cries from her daughter she came into the room and begged her sister to stop. However, Mercy did not listen. She proceeded to lace a stick with pepper and insert it into the girl’s Vagina thereby damaging her hymen.

Speaking to journalists, a rights activist, Kelvin Ejumudo, said he got wind of the cruelty and quickly led his colleagues to the scene and rescued the victim.

He said: “Mercy Oba is the sister to the blind woman. The blind woman’s daughter, Igho, went to her room and took garri and fish.

“When the auntie met her in the room and asked ‘why are you stealing my food? Igho said they (herself and mother) were hungry.


“She started beating the little girl. The blind mother managed to find her way down and pleaded for her to leave Igho, but she started to beat her too. The next thing, she carried the little girl to her room, put pepper in her private part and drove a stick into her vagina.

People came and were holding her, but she threw their load outside, that they will no longer stay in the house. The next thing, she said she would kill them and nothing would happen.

“I got the distress call that she’s an Igbo woman, so she feels that her juju will protect her. She felt untouchable. We swung into action and got her arrested. She was detained in our presence and medical care was given to the girl and her blind mother.”

The spokesperson of the command, DSP Bright Edafe, who confirmed the incident on Sunday, said the aunt is cooling off her feet in police custody.
