Boy, 13, loses hands after stepmom, native doctor burned them over claims he slept with her in a dream [Photos]

Published

A 13-year-old boy, Ovey Friday, may never be able to use his hands again after his hands were burned with coals of fire over allegations he was sleeping with his stepmother in her dream.

Friday’s stepmother dragged him to a native doctor at Wulko Community, Nasarawa Eggon Local Government Area [LGA], Nasarawa State, who – after his divination – accused the boy of being a wizard, tied his hands before heaping hot coals on them.

The stepmother claimed she needed him to confess and also get the spirit out of him.

The incident led to a permanent deformity of his right hand while the left hand was amputated at an Abuja hospital on Thursday, November 14th.

Spokesperson of the Nasarawa State Ministry of Youths, Eche Amos, shared details about the incident on his Facebook page on Friday morning. He said the suspects have been arrested by the Police and will soon be charged to court for ”culpable homicide.”

He wrote,

To the glory of God, 13-year-old Ovey Friday, a victim of domestic violence from Wulko Community, Nasarawa Eggon Local Government Area, Nasarawa State, had a successful operation at Cedar Crest Hospitals, Abuja(all expenses paid).

His left hand was amputated below the elbow to save his life.

Ovey, whose biological mother is now late, was accused of witchcraft by his step-mother who alleged that the teenager was making love to her in her dreams, an allegation the young boy repeatedly denied.

He was then taken for exorcism where, with the collusion of a native doctor, Ovey’s hands were tied together and coals of fire poured on them to force him to confess to the allegation, yet, he claimed his innocence.

The effect of the burns led to Ovey’s (left) hand’s amputation and permanent deformity on the other(right) as it had degenerated into gangrene.

While Ovey’s father, Friday Dio, an okada rider based in Lagos is yet to surface since this incident happened, all the suspects involved in this abominable act have been arrested by the Police and will soon be charged to court for culpable homicide.

Efforts are underway to fix a prosthetic hand for him.

This is an expensive task, but HUMANITY will always be first!!!
