Woman Remanded in police custody For bitting off Hosemaid Private Part

Emotion flowed like river at
the Onitsha Chief
Magistrate Court yesterday
when Chiamaka (other
names withheld), a mother
of two, was arraigned by
the police for savagely
biting her nine-year-old
maid, including her private part. This happened in
the commercial city of Onitsha, Anambra State.
Chiamaka, who hails from Eziagu in Enugu State, was
arraigned in suit number MO/38/2013 for allegedly
inflicting bodily harm on her maid, Nnenna Nwafor,
on July 25 when she allegedly used dangerous
weapons and her teeth to inflict injuries on the girl.
The Police Prosecution counsel, Mr. Uwakwe Okoji,
told the court that the suspect, a mother of two in
her mid- 20s, committed the crime on July 25, 2013
at No 7 Udemba Street, Woliwo Onitsha, where she
allegedly gave her maid bites all over the body
including her private part.
He described the act as not only evil, but also one of
man's inhumanity to man. He equally told the court
that the husband of the suspect had since sent her
out of his house because of the act, while praying the
court to look into the matter with a view to bringing
the suspect to justice.
Widow and mother of the victim, Mrs. Nwafor, told
the court amidst tears of how her daughter was
battered by her mistress with bites, including her
vàgina; adding that, since then, the family has been
passing through difficult times attending to the
victim medically.
"I am a widow; I had challenges raising my children
after my husband died. It was the difficulty that
made meI to send my daughter to live with
Chiamaka. I never knew that the injuries she inflicted
on her were as serious as this until when she
removed her pant and I noticed that she had a very
serious cut in her private part. There are also other
bite scars on her face, buttocks and, in fact, all over
her body. I can't really understand this type of
punishment meted out to an innocent girl," she said,
The victim, Nnenna, while narrating her ordeal to
Saturday Sun after the court session, painted a gory
picture of what she passed through in the hands of
her mistress. She said that on several occasions, her
mistress had poured hot water on her, and attacked
her with dangerous weapons on some other
She further disclosed how her mistress forced her
down and ordered her to open her legs before biting
her severally in her private part, after inflicting same
on her buttocks and other parts of her body.
The presiding Magistrate, Mr. M A Okonkwo, said he
was dumbfounded over the incident, adding that he
never believed that a woman, who had passed
through pains of childbirth, could inflict this type of
injuries on a daughter of a fellow woman and ordered
the suspect to be remanded in police custody...
