In a quite devastating report, a young girl in Benue state has been admitted to a hospital after she was allegedly battered by her stepsister.

A Human rights activist, Ukan Kurugh shared the story online where he revealed that the young girl identified as Ngohol was rescued on Saturday, September 11 from the hands of her stepsister who allegedly physically abused her.

According to Ngohol, her offence was that she closed the door on the finger of her stepsister.

Sharing the incident alongside photos, Ukan wrote,

“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 stepsister 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 in a private hospital 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 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.”
