Akwa Ibom Police Sergeant uses AK 47 to assault young daughter accused of witchcraft [Photo]


A Nigerian police sergeant, Ita Ayamba, from Ibiaku community, Mkpat Enin Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State has brutalized his daughter after she was accused of witchcraft at a Pentecostal church in Port Harcourt.
The 8 year old girl was allegedly taken to the church by her father’s new wife and it was there she was accused of being a witch and for being the reason behind her father’s poor career progression in the Police Force.
According to a source close to the family the Sergeant tortured his daughter for several hours in a bid to extract a confession 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.”
Ita’s former wife had custody of the children but had allowed them to visit their father Ita in Port Harcourt, upon his request whilst they were on holiday in August.
A source familiar with the matter said,  “It was during their stay in Port Harcourt, 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 child is said to be in intensive care unit of the Immanuel Hospital, Eket, Eket LGA whilst the father is on the run. 
“The father who was also in the church began to beat and kick Goodness in  a bid to extract a confession about her witchcraft.”
