A 7-year old girl (name withheld), has summed up courage and reported her grand father and wife for maltreating her.

The little girl, who is said to be living with the couple after the death of her father, had no choice but to endure the pains until it became unbearable.

According to the spokesman of Ogun State Command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, a 57-year old man, Joseph Akporugo and his wife, Janet, have been arrested by men of Ogun State Police Command for maltreating a 7-year old girl, who incidentally is the granddaughter of the man.

The little girl, who is having wounds all over her body, walked into the house of a Police Constable living very close to their house in Awa-Ijebu and reported to him about the maltreatment meted out to her by her grandfather and his wife, who she had been living with since the death of her biological father.

 She further narrated how the couple put rubber on fire and used it to burn her all over her body on allegation that she is a witch and that she used her witchcraft to kill her biological father.

After listening to the innocent little girl, the Police Constable took her to Awa-Ijebu Police Station, where the case was incidented. 

The DPO, CSP Adewalehinmi, after hearing the case, immediately detailed detectives to the couple’s house and they were promptly arrested.
On interrogation, the duo were unable to justify their devilish maltreatment of the innocent little girl.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Kenneth Ebrimson, has ordered a proper investigation of the case with the view to diligently prosecute the suspects.
