A house help, Onyebuchi Ezeh, has harvested the genitals of a 72-year-old woman and other parts of her body for suspected money rituals.
The incident happened at Umunze, Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra State, within the week.
Stonix News gathered that the septuagenarian woman was rescued by neighbours, who later took her to the hospital.
Ezeh, after his arrest, reportedly confessed that he and some friends carried out the abominable act on the instruction of a native doctor, who had promised to enrich them if they brought the required ritual items.
Meanwhile, Media Assistant to the State Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Welfare, Miss Chidinma Ikeanyionwu, said the commissioner, Mrs Ify Obinabo, has visited the victim.
She disclosed that the victim was recuperating at the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, where she was taken to.
“The incident was discovered after the survivor raised alarm on Thursday.
“One of her workers, alongside two other men, stampeded her in her house and cut off her genitals, including nipples, ears, and fingers among others.
“The culprit by name Onyebuchi Ezeh who was later caught, confessed that they were sent by a native doctor to get the needed organs of the 72 year old in order to become billionaires.
“The culprit hails from Abakaliki in Ebonyi State, and usually helps the victim in cutting palm-trees.
“He was said to have explained that they embarked on the act because they wanted to get rich according to the assurances of the native doctor,” Ikeanyionwu said.
