Tragedy! Guardian tortures teenager to death in Plateau

One Mrs. Nneamaka Nwachuku, has tortured to death an 11 years old girl, identified as Margaret Joshua, in Jos.

Margaret reportedly died from alleged physical abuse from Nwachuku, who happened to be her guardian.

Nwachuku is a microbiologist who works with one of the Research Institutes in Vom, Jos South local government area of Plateau State.

The victim was from Kebbi State and was fleeing from insecurity in her community before some supposed helper brought her to Jos to serve in the Nwachukwu’s home.

The alleged abuser, a mother of two who did not enrol the victim in any school in the over one year that the girl had spent with them, rather indulged in the daily beating of the girl until she finally gave up the ghost due to the assault.

It was gathered that after a recent beating, the girl was forced to sit in a container with hot water which burnt her buttocks and she died in the hospital on Monday.

The Plateau State Coordinator of the National Human Rights Commission, Mrs. Grace Pam whose office is following up on the case disclosed that based on the number of scars and wounds on her body, her guardians must have subjected her to a series of torture during the period that she stayed with the family.

She explained, “Our attention was called to the situation on Monday by a staff in the hospital who said that an a11-year-old girl was seriously beaten and injured by her guardian, Mrs. Nneamaka Nwachukwu in Vom. The girl had scars and burns on her body. We were told that she was taken to Mandela hospital in Kaduna Vom before she was referred to come to Jos.

“When some of our staff met with Mrs. Nwachukwu at the Police Station in Vom where she was detained, she confessed she has been beating her and claimed the girl used to masturbate so she was punishing her so she could stop. She claimed she did not know what used to come over her because she felt bad anytime she beats the child.”

Speaking on the burns on the victim’s buttocks, the guardian claimed: “she fell into hot water and ran out of the house after the incident for almost 24hrs.”
