According to one of the doctors, Ebimi Tokoye also sustained deep cuts to her buttocks and shoulder.

Narrating her ordeal, the victim, an indigene of Okpokunu near Bomadi Local Government Area of Delta State, said her mother also rubbed pepper and kerosene on the wounds.

“My mother came back around 12 pm on Sunday, after church, and accused me of stealing her N1,500 and I denied because I didn’t see the money. She started beating me and tied me with ropes. She started slashing all parts of my body with razor blade. She later rubbed pepper and kerosene on the injuries,” she explained.
