There was a recent report on a married mother of four, Zainab
Mohammed who was attacked by three suspected Ritualists who
took turns to rape her and thereafter plucked her eye out in
Bauchi State .
The suspects who have been identified as Sabo Rabo of Durr
Katanga Village, Bitrus Yakubu of Dado Village and Mohammed
Bamigboye of Durr Katanga Village will be charged to court.
The 32- year-old woman who is crying for help as she said her
husband is not capable of footing her medical expenses not while
narrated her terrible ordeal. “After attending a turbaning ceremony
in Lukshi, a village in Dass Local Government, I started to head
home to meet my family as there was nobody to cook for them.
When I reached a particular area close to a bush, I saw three
men looking at me as I approached them.
“One of them approached me and said that he wanted to have
sexual intercourse with me and that he was willing to pay for it,
but I objected because I am a married woman. When they saw
that I was not willing to cooperate with them, they pushed me to
the ground and dragged me inside the bush and raped me, one
after the other.
“After raping me, one of them brought out a knife, stabbed and
plucked out my right eye with it, while the other two held me
tightly to the ground. He also tried to removed the left eye,but he
could not. But the eye ended up being damaged. After doing this,
they left me in my pool of blood and fled”.
Meanwhile the victim’s husband, Mohammed Usman who is shocked
over what happened and also heartb roken said: “I waited for my wife
to return from the ceremony she attended in a nearby village,but
she did not show up . When it was getting dark, I began to get
worried and wanted to go and look for her.
Suddenly, some of my neighbours ran to my house to inform me
that my wife was attacked while returning from the ceremony.
What broke my heart was that the attackers did not only rape
her, but also blinded her”.
He’s also calling on the state government to come to his wife’s aid as
he’s a poor man and cannot shoulder the financial responsibilities of his
wife’s medical treatment.
However one of the suspects, 45- year-old man Bitrus Yakubu who
said it was the other two men that raped her in his own confession
said: “One native doctor, Galambi, told me and my colleagues to
get him the eyes of a woman. I don’t know what he intends to do
with the eyes, but he promised to give us N1 million after the
operation. We could not resist the offer because of poverty and
the desire to become rich people like our friends”.
The native doctor, Galambi however denied sending the suspects to
remove the eyes of the woman,but admitted receiving the eyes from
them. “The men approached me to prepare some charms for
them because they wanted protection; so I told them to get the
eyes of a woman, which they agreed to bring.
Another purpose of the charm is to help them to disappear
whenever they want to. I don’t know whose eyes they removed or
how they got it,my own work is to prepare the charms for them,”
he said.
The woman, Zainab Mohammed who is currently in pain in the
female surgical ward of the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Teaching
Hospital with her left eye completely damaged may be able to see with
her right eye after operating and repairing the globe, this is according
to the Head of Ophthalmology Department of ATBU, Dr
Mohammed Mahdi Abdull who operated on her.
