Father Tortures Daughter For Being A 'Witch' by eddyj36(m): 10:09pm On Mar 02, 2013
A six- year- old girl, Edidiong Etok Akpan, who was subjected to a harrowing treatment by her father, Edet Etok Akpan, was rescued after she had been locked up in a room with her hands tied and mouth covered with a piece of cloth for five days.

Edidiong said her 42-year-old father started beating her on Tuesday,19th of February, after one Prophetess Endurance, the pastor of the church they attend, told “my father that I was a witch and I was the one making him not to progress in life”.

She said after the severe beatings, which, according to her, lasted for two days, on Thursday, 21st February, her father tied her hands with a cord and covered her mouth with a piece of cloth and “locked me in the inner room of our house and he never gave me food and never allowed me to go to school ”.

The girl, who said she attends Femos Nursery and Primary School, located at 24 Etyin Abasi Street, Calabar, was dying after days without food or water when luck came her way on Sunday, 23rd February, at about 11 am, as another child who lives in the same with her family came to their veranda, looked through the window and saw Edidiong bound on the floor and screamed. “The girl called her parents and neighbours to come and see Edidiong tied like a goat inside their house”, Mr James Ibor of the Basic Rights Counsel, a child rights advocate lawyer, who was called to the scene, said.

Ibor said that when the neighbours saw the girl in that state, one of them called him and he, in turn, informed the officer in charge of legal matters at the Cross River State Police Command headquarters, Superintendent George, and they both drove to the place.

“As we were going there, we also informed the police at Efuk, Mbukpa to join us.When we got there, we saw a crowd outside and we knew that,that was the place and we went in and carried out the rescue by breaking the door”.

He said the girl was “very weak because she had been without food for days and so we had to give her water first, then, after about ten minutes, we gave her milk before solid food an hour later”.

Ibor said the father and mother had locked up the girl in the inner room of their two- room apartment and went to church in the hope that by the time they came back, the girl may have died. “God saved her and she is now living with her grandmother in another part of town,”the lawyer said.

DSP John Umoh, Cross River State Police Command spokesman, said the father, from Akwa Ibom State, had been arrested and would soon appear in court to answer charges of felony. “To tie a small girl hand and mouth and lock her in a room for days without food is a grievious offence; he (the father) will soon appear in court”, Umor added.

Its so sad the father of that poor girl is brainless and I doubt the sick mother went through any pain of child birth. The both of then should be punished and remain childless,that girl should be adopted by couples who needs a child badly cos this one don't value the child and never will even if she is returned. Dump pastor and more dumb parents.

Anybody conversant with Akwa Ibom knows that this occurence happens atleast 3times a week in the state. No thanks to Helen Upkabio who is an expert in labelling Children witches..


On the Flip Side.. Exodus 22:18
King James Version (KJV)

18 Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.


The man was only following the commandments of the Christian God Almighty!!

This is very funny.
I don't know who to blame here, the prophet, the parents, the child for being a witch?
Hell I don't even know what to believe.
But if that girl is a witch eh.....Hmmmmmmmm

Re: Father Tortures Daughter For Being A 'Witch' by gluv01(f): 4:18pm On Mar 04, 2013
This is the highest state of ignorance and submitting oneself to the devil. No God can ask you to kill your child. Even Islam doesn't preach of that. I've not seen something like this. That's the problem in Nigeria. She is a witch and the best thing to do not minding her age is to subdue her under such horrible treatment? My God! That man must be so heartless. And the woman who was called by God as affectionate and loving also turned to a monster. Giving the little girl a very terrible nightmare she'll forever remember.Thank God she didn't die. It was better if she was killed than being kept for so long. I don't mean it's not good as she is alive o,but the thought of the suffering she went through in the hands of the so called parents scares me. at such little age, enduring hunger like that? not even water from the mother? When an adult finds it difficult to go a day without one square meal at least.

Thank God for her anyway.

Man my heart is boiling with immense anger right now. Why do weak, useless and unsuccessful parents in Nigeria always blame someone else, especially innocent, helpless children and feeble and frail older folks for their laziness and plight?

Why are we Nigerians so heartless and wicked for no justifiable reason?

Why are children so expendable and unimportant to you brutes?

And to imagine that this atrocity has been committed in the name of a religion that puts kids first.

While they are at it, the bastard of a prophetess that incited this should also be made to face the full force of the law.

Bunch of wicked and evil people parading themselves as Christians.

They were so eager to take a life that God commanded to never tamper with but these are supposed to be followers of Christ.


Religion has doomed Africans.

This is so painful to read.
