Eunice Oduro, a 39-year-old woman is in the grips of the police allegedly burning the private parts of a 13-year-old girl at Akyem Oda in the Eastern Region.
The eyewitness who confirmed the incident said, Eunice’s act is her way of meting out punishment to the victim for wetting her bed and to prevent her from further urinating in bed.
The eyewitness recounts how the suspect directed the girl to open her legs over the burning stove to burn off her private parts.

The timely intervention of a neighbour who had gone to the house for a visit saved the injured victim who is currently recuperating from her injuries at the Akim Oda government hospital.
The doctors at the Akim Oda hospital say all the buttocks and private parts of the victim are seriously burnt and are hoping the wounds she sustained won’t require surgery.
The suspect is still in police custody pending investigations.
