woman killed step daughter imo state

A woman who killed her step daughter in Imo state on Friday has been arrested.

The accused, Prisca David allegedly beat her step daughter, 13-year-old Veronica David to death at their home in Ogwuaga Abba in Nwangele LGA of Imo state.

After killing the girl, Prisca prevailed on the father of the girl, Damian David to get an accomplice to tie a rope around the girl’s neck to create the impression that she committed suicide but a boy who saw them committing the act reported the matter to police.

The 3 suspects involved in the murder are currently at the homicide section of the Imo State Police command in Owerri where they are expected to be paraded and charged to court.

A resident  said the father of the girl married Prisca after the girl’s mother died.

“They had always maltreated the girl. They were beating her that Friday morning as usual when she slumped and died.” – said the resident named Chima.

  1. Stupid man. What is so special between the woman’s legs that he allowed her to maltreat his daughter? Parents are supposed to protect their children from harm and wickedness of others. The neighbors should have done more to alert the authorities or find the girl’s late mother’s relatives to rescue her. The outrageous tradition that the child belongs to the father stems out of poverty, in the days that women had many children they could not raise alone (which, sadly continues today, especially women desperate to have male children). It’s too late now for the poor girl. I hope the evil stepmother will rot in jail and the so called father. Adults, please act to protect vulnerable children in your society and don’t pretend not to see the signs. It could be someone’s acts that will save your own child in future.

  2. And the yeye father is involved did I read this rite? Useless man kill your own blood all because of toto EWU.. RIP my angel why cant you report abuse neighbours.. because they are her parents africa abusive parents

  3. Both the father and the step mother should be hanged too. I hope the case does not stop at police station; it should go to court.
