sick woman named Iya Toheeb, with maggots dropping continuously from
her private parts reportedly arrived her village for assistance but what
happened next, is surprising as people gather round to really view how
it’s dropping, the woman who’s sickness is believed to come from money
ritual is from Olakula area of Idiroko in Ipokia Local Government Area
of Ogun State on Wednesday.
It was thought
that she might have been a victim of money-making ritual after her
condition allegedly defied orthodox medication.
woman was also brought to one of the men she was associated with, a
carpenter in the community. Of the reason for bringing the afflicted
woman to the man, a source at the scene who asked not to be named, said:
woman was brought to the carpenter who was her former husband. Her
family members believed that the man may be responsible for her
worsening condition that defied treatment in hospital where she was
admitted for months.
Doctors were said to have advised her
relatives to seek alternative medicine to her ill-health because it had
gone beyond the purview of orthodox medicine.’’
Another source, who did not want her name in print, told TheNation:
woman had dated different men in the past and it is believed that she
may have been used for money-making ritual going by what we heard from
those who know her.
“She has no wound in her private part yet
maggots keep dropping from her sexual organ and that sends a signal that
there is more to her problem than meets the eye, particularly since
doctors have asked her relatives to seek help from native doctors for
solution to her problem.”
It was learnt that the carpenter, whose
real name could not be ascertained at press time, made remarks that
suggested the woman was being punished for her promiscuity, after which
the woman’s family members decided to bring her to him for possible
solution to her predicament. The carpenter reportedly fled before the
arrival of TheNation’s correspondent.
At the scene,
sympathisers helped spread a sack on the car seat on which the woman sat
when the maggots continued to drop even as a stench emanating from her
body fouled the air.
“This is what my beauty has done to me o,” said the woman shortly before being taken away by her family members.
