The index finger of Abiba Adeyemo, a seven-year-old girl was cut by her father, Nasiru Adeyemo, and step-mother, Idayat, seemingly for ritual in Ogun State.
The couple from hell also tied their victim, bundled her into a sack and dumped her by the roadside at Asabala area along Papalanto/Sagamu Road to die.
Nemesis, however, caught up with them when police got to the scene after passers-by had drawn their attention to the strange sack and found Abiba alive inside it with her hands and legs tied.
Subsequently, she was rushed to the hospital. A manhunt was later launched for her abusers and they were arrested.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Ogun State, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident in a statement released on Monday.
The statement reads in part, “On the strength of the information, the DPO Owode Egba, CSP Shehu Alao, led his men to the scene, where the white rice sack was untied.
“Surprisingly, a seven year-old-girl, whose right index finger was cut off, was found inside the sack and dumped at the roadside since Friday. Having realised that the girl was still alive, she was quickly taken to the hospital for medical attention.”
