The police in Delta State’s Isiokolo Division, Ethiope-East Local Government Area, detained Mercy Oba for allegedly assaulting her forty-five-year-old blind step-sister, Odiri Oba, and her twelve-year-old daughter.
The culprit has been apprehended thanks to the efforts of Warri-based human rights activist Kelvin Ejumudo and his colleagues.
According to the activist’s Facebook page, the suspect allegedly shoved a wood into the private part of the blind woman’s twelve-year-old daughter and inflicted bodily damage on her and the blind mother after harsh beatings.
He further stated that the suspect pushed the victims out of their homes, throwing their belongings out while threatening to kill them and gloating that nothing would happen.
Comrade Ejumudo said the matter will be charged to Court on Monday.
Ejumudo, who tendered a Police medical report said, “Nobody has the monopoly of violence and to inflict bodily injuries on another individual.”
He urged the Delta State Commissioner of Police, CP Ari Muhammed Ali to ensure that justice is served in the matter to serve as a deterrent to others.
Blind Odiri Oba is an indigene of Emaje Village, Kokori Community in Ethiope-East Local Government Area and is a step-sister to the suspect, Mercy Oba.
It was not clear at the time of this report, why the suspect who is currently in Police custody attacked her blind sister and her daughter.
