For the first time, the daughter of the widow who was flogged by adolescents in her community after being bound for two days has spoken out.
The wife of Mrs. Amarachi Okechi’s late husband’s brother accused her of witchcraft.
This led youths in Umueghu, Amaegbuato community, Nkpa Bende LGA, Abia state, to tie her up publicly for two days after which the grown men in the community took turns to flog her five strokes each all over her body.
The video sparked outrage and the wife of the Abia State Governor announced that the widow has been rescued and taken to a hospital.
The daughter of the widow took to Facebook to react to her mother’s public humiliation and assualt.
Flourish Victor explained that she had to leave Lagos for Umuahia when she heard what had been done to her mother.
She said she couldn’t recognise her mother when she saw her after the assault and it broke her heart.
“My heart aches… I feel humiliated… I feel like I’m not alive again. I want revenge… I really want revenge,” she wrote on Facebook.
