Faith Nwanja: 12-Year-Old Girl Reveals How Her Madam Inserted A Stick In Her Private Part For Being Too Stubborn

A 12-year-old girl, Faith Nwanja, has revealed to officials of the Ebonyi State Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development, how her madam, Mrs. Nkechi Bartholomew, inserted a stick in her private part. The girl who is from Okoffia community in Ezza South Local Government Area, was mutilated, tortured and abandoned by her madam for being too stubborn.

Bartholomew, a childless woman and seamstress, adopted Faith when she was an 8-year-old and took her to Onitsha, Anambra State. However, rather than show her love and care, Bartholomew disfigured the girl. Nwanja has scars and injuries all over her body including her eyes as a result of the treatment received from being manhandled by her madam. It’s understood she has even lost one of her hands to torture.

Narrating her ordeal, Faith said her madam, who also comes from the same area with her, used hot iron, sticks and other dangerous weapons to torture her for being stubborn. Bartholomew’s sister was the one who rescued the girl while she was locked up in a dark room and taken back to Ebonyi State. Some of the other accusations made by Faith against her madam includes being fed just once a day – usually in the evening, being chained and she was even inflicted with injury when Bartholomew inserted her fingers into the girl’s eyes. She said:

“My madam, Bartholomew, disfigured me like this. I was a full-fledged human being when she took me to Onitsha, Anambra State. She inserted her fingers in my eyes and inflicted these injuries on me.

“In this my mouth, she usually uses stones and puts inside it. She said I don’t normally brush my teeth and since I cannot do it, I must always suffer for it.

“The husband has never beaten me; he always gets annoyed seeing me being tortured by his wife. At times, he will summon courage and quarrel with his wife because the wife is bigger than the man.

“My madam used to lock me inside a dark room after beating me up. I was taken home by my madam’s sister who told her to take me home but she refused. My madam used to tell me that nothing will happen if I die, that she will spend her money and regain freedom if she is arrested if anything happens to me.

“I was attending school in the village before she took me to Onitsha. But since four years that I went to Onitsha, I have not gone to school. I only eat in the evening every day.

“My madam used to insert stick into my private part, she says I am stubborn. After beating me up, she will bring to gallons and placed my two legs. She will tie my legs on them and insert stick into my private part.”

Head of Department, Child Development Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development, Godwin Igwe, described Nwanja’s torture as inhuman and degrading. He added that it was contrary to the constitution of the Nigeria 1999 as amended in 2011.

“No human being or child for any reason should be subjected to inhuman treatment. But this child was subjected to inhuman treatment.

“This is a pure case of attempted murder, this is a pure case of attempted annihilation, snuffing of life and debilitating. Right now, she cannot use one of her hands, she is a disabled person. The head has been mutilated, she has been disfigured.”

It’s understood the suspect is at large while her sister who brought the victim home, has been arrested by the state police command.
