A senior civil servant with the Kogi State Government, Rebecca Omacho, is in serious trouble after she allegedly burnt her niece's legs with a hot stone, leaving the little girl with severe injuries.
According to a Facebook user, Mofinternational Usman who posted the incident on his wall narrated how the Omacho who is the Executive Secretary of the State Scholarship Board, subjected the girl identified only as Favor, to the evil punishment because the girl refused to stop attending a certain school.
The young girl who is Omacho's sister's daughter was left with sores on her feet as a result of her aunt's wicked acts.
Read what Usman wrote:
"A very high level of a case of child abuse committed by Mrs. Rebecca Omacho to the daughter of her sister by name Favor, who stays with her.
Mrs. Rebecca is the Executive Secretary, Kogi State Scholarship Board, decided to maltreated Favor by putting a stone in the fire and after the stone got hot, she pulled it out with a rag and placed the hot stone on Favors legs so she could the girl from going to the school she have been attending and keep her indoor permanently.
But little Favor was said to have defied the order and scaled the fence of the house to attend class.
It was when she returned home that this wicked and evil woman decided to maltreat her for disobeying her instructions.
What a wicked world? I was also surprised seeing the wicked woman begging for cover up at the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development, saying that exposing her to the public will dent her career in the service since she only has one more year to retire.
But her plea was ignored by the authorities of the ministry and the case was reported to the police for proper investigation and documentation.
But before then, the accused had run away from the said ministry where the case was brought for interrogation by members of Community Life Advancement Project ( CLAP).
Am also appealing to the state government to take care of little Favor because she is seriously in need of medical assistance."
The Ministry is said to have vowed to take up the case and make sure Omacho is prosecuted to serve as a deterrent to others like her who abuse their wards.
