Woman Inflicts Injuries on Her 5-year-Old Nephew Over Boyfriend’s Car Damage in Port-Harcourt
A yet-to-be-identified Port Harcourt-based nurse has been accused of inflicting injuries on Victory, her 5-year-old nephew, for damaging a part of her boyfriend’s car.
As seen in a viral post shared by Sunday Ejeje, an X user, on Friday, a resident had raised the alarm after seeing Victory’s blood-stained back and swollen face.
According to Ejeje’s account, the resident was taking her children to school when she saw Victory, who happened to be her son’s classmate.
The post partly reads, “He (Victory) and his elder brother who is in basic 4 are living with their father’s sister who is a nurse that owns a chemist shop here in Port Harcourt.
“Their dad is living outside the country but sends her money for the children’s welfare.
“Their aunt who should be in her 40’s, unmarried but living with her boyfriend of 30+ collaborated and unleashed this terror on this innocent boy claiming he spoilt something in the boyfriend’s car.”
When FIJ later contacted Ejeje on the matter, he said he gathered that the incident had been reported at Kala Police Station, located on Ikwerre Road in Port Harcourt.
“I was also told that the people around her shop, located on Ada George Road, said the lady has been so wicked and maltreats not just the 5-year-old but also the elder one,” said Ejeje.
When FIJ contacted Grace Woyengikuro Iringe-Koko, the police spokesperson in the state, for comments on the matter on Saturday, she said she was not aware of the incident.
Iringe-Koko then said she would reach out to Kala Police Station regarding the incident.
She would return the call as promised but claimed “the incident had not been reported at Kala station”.
She further requested that such an incident should be reported at the station to assist the police in its investigation.
