Oct 21, 2013 – Nigerian Policeman Tortures Alleged Witch Child With Gun Over Failed Witchcraft Confession

Mr. Ita Ayamba, a police officer from Ibiaku community, Mkpat Enin Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State has allegedly brutalised and abandoned his eight-year-old daughter, Goodness Ayamba over her refusal to confess to witchcraft.

Ita was said to have paraded the little girl along the village streets naked, declaring that Goodness was responsible for his retrogression in the Police Force.

A source and relative of Ita, told our correspondent in Eket on Saturday, on the condition of anonymity, that the police sergeant tortured his daughter for several hours in an attempt to extract a confession of being a witch from her.

He said, “When he discovered that Goodness had passed out, Ita abandoned her, having hit her chest with the butt of his AK 47 Rifle.

“None of us could go close to Ita to rescue Goodness as he had threatened to shoot anyone that dared.

“I don’t see how a child of that age could become a clog in the wheel of her father’s progress in the Police Force. We need to tell each other the truth. Progress in one’s career depends on the efforts one has made academically.”

PUNCH Metro gathered that Ita had divorced Goodness’ mother some years back. He was said to have remarried almost immediately, leaving three children including Goodness with their grandmother.

A resident of the area, Okon Ekong, said that on July 28, 2013 when the children were on holiday, Ita had requested custody of them. He was said to be at his new station in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, at the time.

Ita’s former wife, Mrs. Anietie Ayamba, allegedly heeded his request and took the children to him. Ekong said that the children’s stepmother made life miserable for them.

He said, “It was during their stay in Port Hracourt, that their stepmother took the children to a Pentecostal church. Goodness was accused of witchcraft at the church. Her stepmother was told that Goodness was the person responsible for their father’s non-rising profile in the force.

“The father who was also in the church began to beat and kick Goodness in a bid to extract a confession about her witchcraft.”

When PUNCH Metro visited Immanuel Hospital, Eket, Eket LGA, on Saturday, where Goodness was taken to for medical attention, it was gathered that she had been admitted at the intensive care unit of the children’s ward.

Nurses at the hospital said Goodness’ condition was stable but that her bones and chest cavity had been badly damaged.

A group of women lawyers under the aegis of Federation of International Women Lawyers have said that they would do everything within their power to ensure that Ita was brought to justice.

The state director of the organisation, Mrs. Mary Udonsek, stated that the women would not continue to sit back and allow men maltreat their children on the guise of labelling them witches.

Ita, said to be working at Trans Amadi Police Station, Port Harcourt, Rivers State had allegedly not been to Ibiaku, Mkpat Enin LGA since the incident.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Etim Dickson, said the Rivers State Police Command would be contacted about the matter.

He said, “Messages have been sent across to police area commands in Oron and Ikot Ekpene so that Ita will not have any place to hide once he is in the state.”

  9. That man, the wife and the Pastor should face justice. If the Pastor is indeed a real man of God, why didn’t he deliver her from witch craft. And that animal who calls himself a father foolishly kills the innocent girl just like that. To me that girl is innocent and not a witch. That incident is a gang up from the little girl (deceased) step-mother. Anyway, God is on His throne, justice must surely take its course. May God have mercy on our generation.

  10. THIS PEOPLE FROM AKWA IGBOM, SHOULD PLEASE STOP THIS CHILD ABUSE AND WICKEDNESS IN THE NAME OF WITCHCRAFT, BOTH THE CHURCH PASTOR AND THE SO CALLED FATHER OF THE GIRL SHOULD BE PUT TO DEATH. THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD LOOK INTO THIS RIGHT NOW.

  11. Dat dis litte girl is responsible 4 his woes in d 4ce? Wat a misconceptional belief dat‘s very far 4rm reality? I am v sure d girl must hv missed her moda GR8LY @ dis bita moment of her lyf? Poor girl, pls tk hrt.

    Hw cld any normal man treat his little daughter wt so much brutality bc of mere accusatn 4rm a certain church dat cld even b false?

  12. U can’t say anytin negative for now, before this man beat up his own child like dis, that means the child hv been total destruction to the family, God I non wan experience witch for my house ooo, witch non good for anywere.

    • Hear Bezo the empty headed goat again. I am beginning think that this Bezo animal just says things that he does not really mean. It is also possible that since you believes in witchcraft Bezo, the witches in your family have joined together to make you mad. This forum is for sensible discussions and not for some senseless lunatic like you. Ask God for forgiveness else something worse than this innocent helpless little girl’s predicament shall befall you soon.

  13. If this hooligan of a father does this to his own blood i wonder what he will do to suspects in jail,i wish to lay my hands on him and break all fucked up bones in is cursed body

  14. This is simply unbelievable. Some times, when i hear this sort of stories i feel embarrassed that we still have such backward thinking people in Nigeria and in the Police Force for that matter. If this man can do this to his own flesh imagine what he could do to other people. A lot of people who follow religion blindly require mental health assessment. I just feel like getting hold of that man and squeezing his neck. I hope the relevant authorities will make sure he gets what he deserves.

  15. To start with, is dat guy rili d ‘witch-child’s father?? Hw can a human do dat to his own child!! Nawa for diz police peepz oo…

  16. THE GOVERNMENT NEED TO DEMOLISH THE SO CALLED SMALL LOCAL CHURCHES WHICH THEIR BELIEVE BASED ON , PICKING ON PEOPLE THAT THEY ARE WITCH, BECAUSE THIS SO CALLED AND BRAINWASHERS HAVE DESTROYED SO MANY HOMES, WHERE THE HUSBAND ABAMDONED THEIR WIVES , AND SAY THE PASTOR SAID MY WIFE WAS A WITCH, OH THE PASTOR SAID MY SON WAS A WITCH, THIS TYPE OF THING HAPPEN TO MY SISTER WHERE THE PASTOR SAID ,SHE WAS A WITCH, AND HER HUSBAND FAMILY TOOK ALL HER BELONGING WITHOUT LETTING HER TAKE A SHOE, AND WAS LEFT WITH JUST ONE CLOTHES ON , AND SHE WAS NOT ALLOWED TO SEE HER CHILDREN FOR OVER EIGHTEEN YEARS, JUST BECAUSE THE PASTOR TOLD HER HUSBAND THAT WHENEVER THE HUSBAND IS MAKING LOVE TO HER, SHE USED TO DRINK HIS BLOOD , AND USING HER HUSBAND STAR, AT THE END , WE DISCOVERED THAT , THE PASTOR WANTED TO SLEEP WITH HER, AND SHE REFUSED, SO THE BEST THING FOR PASTOR WAS TO DESTROY HER MARRIAGE. AND MADE HER SUFFERED. I REALLY FEEL SAD FOR THIS GIRL ,HOW THE WICKED FATHER HAVE BRUTALY BEATEN HER, AND I WISH SHE LIVE TO TELL HER STORY FUTURE.

    • It is for reasons like this that the Cameroon gov’t band some of this type of churches some few months ago becuz of some of their distructive doctrines.

  17. My child is my child, no matter how he/she must have erred,my duty as the parent is to help and find a solution to my child’s problem. A solution that will make him/her live a good life again, what kind of life will i live when my divine gifts (children) cannot be protected by me. How will i turn around to become a monster to the little innocent soul who always looks up to me for protection and defense. A good parent will willingly sacrifice his/her life if that will be the only solution to the betterment of the child and not the other way round.

    Tears rolls down my cheeks for you my little defenseless angel, my girl you are a hero ‘cos heavens knows about you, i could imagine those innocent cries from your terrified pure face and not even an iota of pity nor mercy from the man that claims to be your father. My dear, God will avenge for you. Hnmmmmmmmmmmm………(Disturbed).

  18. It is a shame that in the 21st century, some people still behave like they in the dark ages. The authorities in-charge should make sure that the wicked step mother, the so called father and the fake pastor are arrested and punished. If anything worse happens to the girl (God forbid) these trio of devils should be put to death by hanging or firing squad to teach other a lesson. If the idiotic pastor has the power to know the little innocent girl is a witch, why couldn’t he deliver her from such evil? Knowing these pastors, the wicked step mother must have paid him with sex to make such a foolish assertion
