More details have emerged on the doomed boat which capsized and killed no fewer than 26 youth, including a set of 16-year-old triplets on the River Benue.

WuzupNigeria reports that on Sunday 5 July 2020, a boat carrying 28 youths of the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) in Adeke, Makurdi capsized on River Benue, killing no fewer than 26 of them, including a set of triplets.

The triplets were identified as Peter, Paul and Paulina. Their dad, a mobile policeman identified simply as Inspector Bulus, was said to be away on Special duty at the time the incident occurred.

The police officer was also said to lost two other members of his household, Miss Sadutu Kabina and her sister, Precious,  to the boat mishap.

It was gathered that the youths were going on an evangelism mission to a neighbouring community when tragedy struck.

The Secretary of the English Section of the ECWA church, Miss Favour Simeon, said she was with the 26 youths who died in the accident at Sunday service earlier in the day.

Simeon recalled that shortly after the Sunday service, the youths had come together and decided to embark on evangelism in another community across the River Benue, The Nation reports.

Simeon, an acquaintance of the 16-year-old triplets who would have celebrated their 17th birthday in September, said,

“Their mother actually warned them against going to River Benue because the volume of its water had increased, but one of them (Paulina) accused her of trying to weaken her faith.

“It was on that basis that their mother allowed them to travelled for evangelism.”

She described the incident as unfortunate, saying that the deceased triplets were devout Christians who had strong faith in God and loved to worship Him.

Asked how she received the news of the death of her church members, she said:

“My elder brother called me on the phone and asked if I went to evening service and I said no. He requested for Shadrach, one of the victims’ number.

“I was trying to call my brother again when a neighbour ran to me and said a canoe had capsized with our church members on board and all of them had died.

“I ran straight to the house of the triplets at Mobile Barracks and saw people gathered and the mother was crying.

“I ran to the bank of River Benue where the incident occurred and saw a body recovered on the bank of the river. I wept profusely.”

She blamed the police for what she described as a poor rescue operation, saying it took the intervention of the Benue State Commissioner of Police before the Marine police move to the scene for a search-and-rescue operation.

By then, it was too late as most of them had drowned,” she said.

Grief seized the atmosphere at Squadron MOPOL 13 Mobile Barracks when our correspondent visited. Some residents of the barracks were seen in front of their houses weeping as relations and friends trooped in to console them.

The grief was, however, more pronounced in the home of Inspector Bulus because apart from his triplets, two other members of his household, Miss Sadutu Kabina and her sister Precious, were said to have died in the boat mishap.

Inspector Bulus was yet to return from the special duty as of this report.

Deaconess arrested for allegedly lighting up ward’s vagina, inserting hot sticks before rubbing pepper in it (Photos)

Published

on

A deaconess has been arrested after she allegedly subjected her ward to a series of brutal torture that has shocked Nigerians.

The 14-year-old girl named Princess lived with her parents in Kaduna until they were displaced by bandits following an attack on their community.

As a result, Princess’ parents had to place their daughter in the home of Mrs Iyema Oyemola Oyewole, a deaconess of Living Faith Church in Barnawa, as they didn’t want her to be homeless.

While at the deaconess’ home, Princess was allegedly subjected to torture from the deaconess and from her children while the husband allegedly turned a blind eye.

It was alleged the Princess was stopped from going to school. She was also made to sleep in the toilet and she had to drink water from the toilet when thirsty. In addition to all that, she was beaten frequently.

According to reports, the deaconess’ son punishes Princess and beats her at will, sometimes under the rain. It was also alleged that the daughters of the Deaconess help hold Princess whenever their mother wants to torture her.

Photos of Princess show her with burns and scars all over her face, butt and vagina area.

It was alleged that the Deaconess also burns the girl’s vagina with lighter and sometimes inserts a hot stick into her vagina while her daughters help her hold the girl’s legs open.

Afterwards, they would allegedly apply pepper to her vagina.

She also allegedly refused to let the girl’s parents see her each time they tried because she didn’t want them seeing the injuries on her body. Whenever Princess’ parents showed up, she told them they couldn’t come in because of Coronavirus.

Eventually, Princess’ father became suspicious and got the NGOs involved. They were shocked at the state they finally saw Princess in.

When the deaconess was questioned, she said she didn’t know the fire she used to torture the girl was that hot.

“I didn’t know the fire was burning very well like that,” she allegedly said.

Sharing photos of Princess’ wounds, Beevan SickForces Magoni wrote:

THE STORY OF PRINCESS VS THE DEACONESS…

This is the most unbelievable Child abuse story I’ve come in contact with so far…

The picture of the girl here is that of a young Princess. She is fourteen years old from Kuturah in Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna State. Her father moved his family to Kaduna town when the neighboring village was attacked by the forces killing our people.

You should know that in Southern Kaduna we have over fifteen thousand internally displaced persons, and since they don’t have a camp, those in the city centers have accommodated these people and are still doing that.

Mrs. Yemi Awolola whose picture appears above is a Refinery Staff. She is also a Church Deaconess with the Living Faith Church Barnawa. She has five children.

Mr. Oyewole begged for Princess to come and stay with them. The father single-handedly gave the girl to the woman. The woman even used holy water when he handed his daughter to the woman. He thought she was a good Christian woman.
A month later, he called to speak with his daughter; the woman said he must speak with her in English and not Hausa. She knew the daughter would likely spill.

She would now put the girl on the speaker to monitor her. Meanwhile, the girl was sleeping in the toilet all these while with not even a wrapper. The woman gave her a cup and told her that whenever she’s thirsty she should fetch water from the toilet to drink.

In the interview video clip, you’d hear the girl say, “They would now give me leaves like an animal” while in the toilet before the girl would come out to work her ass off.

The father said, “I did not collect or want any money from the woman. All that I wanted to be was for my daughter to go to school.” But in reality, for the past one year, Princess has gone to school just a week.

When asked, why did you go to school just once? And she replied, “The woman opened my bag one week after I commenced school and saw a carrot that I had put inside to eat during break and beat the living daylight out of me. Since then she stopped me from going to school…”

Check the scars on her face? The woman puts a knife on a burner or stove and when it’s hot, she would place it on her face. Her face used to be very swollen.

When the parents insisted on seeing her, she refused to let anyone have access to the girl. The mother, months ago went to the house to see the girl. It was raining, and for three hours, Mrs Oyewole refused to let her see her daughter. She told her she would not allow her into the house because she does not want the woman to bring in corona into the house.

When the mother refused to leave, she opened the gate for her and let her see the daughter from the gate of the house. She told her, “You can see your daughter is alive right? Now leave my house!”

The grains that the woman brought for the family, the woman instantly gave it out to the security men at the gate.

When the girl’s father was told of the inhumane treatment, he then realized that something was wrong. He made contact with the relevant people on how to get his daughter back but every effort proved unsuccessful. The woman told them that the girl was in Abuja.

On Monday, the Uncle to the girl called the woman and warned her that she had just six hours to return the girl and here we are today.

It was then she started treating the girl with iodine and ice to dry up the wounds.

Mrs. Oyewole has a son who beats Princess at will. Punishes her even under the rain. When all of these happens, the husband locks himself in his room and pretends like nothing is happening. Her children Tito and Nifemi would hold the girl’s neck while the mother would burn her buttocks and vagina with lighter.

They hold her down while the mother inserts a stick into her private part at the same time burning the vagina. They also put pepper in the vagina and over the wounds.

When asked at the police station, why did you treat the girl so, and she replied, “I didn’t know the fire was burning very well like that!”

Her Church had settled the matter. But luckily, Alheri Magaji and the rest have got other NGOs involved. Living Faith Kaduna, you owe Kaduna people lots of apologies. Remember Nathaniel Samuel whom you all said carried a bomb into your Church meanwhile it was stolen firecrackers? You almost set Kaduna state on fire with your conduct. You never came out to address the whole issue.

To date, I believe Nath is still in incarceration. He was your Church member albeit a mentally challenged one. I did my investigation. I got threats and insults when I revealed the whole story. To date, nobody has said anything.

The Church in Nigeria is as culpable as anyone else. You settled this case and wanted that girl back to that woman’s home? You all are crazy!”
