Photos: Malnourished child brutally tortured, abused and left lying on the street in Akwa Ibom

David Emmanuel Umem, founder and Executive Director of African Children's Aid and Development Foundation and husband of Danish aid worker Anja Ringgren Loven, last Saturday rushed to the rescue of a child who was severely tortured and left on the streets of Eket in Akwa Ibom State.
 

The girl, who looked malnourished is in critical condition and fighting for her life in a hospital. Meanwhile, investigation is ongoing to find the people behind the attack. Below is the post published by Ms Loven
"As I told you, on Saturday morning David Emmanuel Umem rushed out from our center because he got a phone call about a girl who was seen lying on the street in a very critical state. David rushed her to the hospital and reported the case to the police.
Our own nurse Rose Efiok came to the hospital very short after and has been with the girl ever since. The police are involved helping us to solve the case so I cannot go into a lot of details. This is also why I have marked her face.
All I can say now is that the girl has been abused and is suffering from tremendous pains. The girl has parents so we are likely not going to take her to our center but at this moment we are paying for all her treatments.
We are working hard with the police to find the people or person who did this so we can make sure they being held responsible for their cruel actions. We are fighting for justice"

There seem to be little publicity on this child-witch problem in Akwa Ibom state. I expect right groups in Nigeria to have risen up and speak against the issue, nollywood is not making any movie about it, Stella Damascus, Ben Murry Bruce and other vocal people are also silent. I'm sure there's more to this problem than we currently know.

This tribe and their witchcraft belief system is so endermic. If you have friends from there you will undetstand what I'm talking about. They abandon their parents/children once they hear the word witch. Their christianity no reach there. Very mean people.
