See one of the posts below:

So 5yrs old Esinam has been tortured by her step mum all because she claims she wet her bed. She was dumped in a hot boiled water and locked up in her room for 3 weeks so that know one finds out.
this images you are seeing was as a result of what her step mother of hers who is even pregnant did to her. This didn’t happen in a “Village” but in a community called Odumprala close to Amasaman in the GA south municipality.
As a result of keeping 5yrs old Esinam indoors without any medical attention her private parts have been affected according to Amasaman Doctor’s report.
Where are our women and children activists?
Little Esinam needs some justice!
Until the minister for Gender,Children and Social Protection and other civil societies sees this and seek for justice for little Esinam pls help me share this till help comes,thank u.

So this the woman who did this cruel and barbaric act to her step daughter all because she claims her step daughter wets her bed. The case is currently at Amasaman police station but funny enough de woman is walking freely and in her comfort of her home. The dangerous thing is if this kid continues to stay with this wicked woman so who knows what would be next..??
Why am I making noise?
*Esinam needs proper medical care because she has bin infected.

*Esinam needs a better home not to stay with this lady

*5yrs Esinam herself seeks justice cos she’s traumatised.
Pls feel free to tag and share

    Where is the father in all of this? Didn’t he ask of his daughter for 3 weeks?

    Behind every wicked step mother is a father who failed his child.

      Mechi onu biko….using style to push blame to the father. If the abuse came from the father I’m sure you will not be saying this rubbish

      Excuse me, but Aibee is very correct. When my dad remarried, it was so difficult to process because we hear horrible tales about step-moms. But after so many years, my father never failed us. He always stood his ground on what is right, and his wife knows her wrong will never be tolerated, so she does right too.

    I will never understand people who marry people who already have kids when they know they cannot love a step-child like their own…

      What do you expect from Nigerian women that feel they must marry by force? She must be Mrs by any means even if she doesn’t necessarily like the man, his kids or family. As far as she’s a Mrs, she’s contented. Very toxic and dangerous form of femininity.
