    No motive from the step mother could justify throwing a girl into the well. where was this girl’s parent when she was dumped into the well and why were the girl’s parents powerless to rescue their daughter during this inhumane exercise? Those house wives should be thoroughly investigated so they can give more information about the occurrence.

    Now as God would have it,that girl survived death after 2 days in the well! That was a miracle. the police should do well to comb every part of that community particularly those residents buildings where that well they threw the girl is situated.

    Many this days have advanced from bad to worse. People are now fierce without love of goodness. Many no longer have pity as they’ve now had the heart of beast. Parents should do well to always take good care and look after their children.

    THANK GOD FOR HIS TIMELY INTERVENTION! IT WOULD have been another story. Wickedness courses like blood in the veins of many people. I keep wondering how somebody would remain at peace with himself after taking the life of his fellow human being.
