A statement issued by Spokesman of EFCC, Tony Orilade, disclosed that the suspects are cooperating with their interrogation, adding that they will be charged to court soon.

Similarly, Police in Anambra have arrested a woman for applying pepper on the genital organ of Precious Nwali, 12, before sending her out at night for allegedly stealing N26,000.00 at her residence in Nzekwe Street, near Kwata meat market in Awka.

The suspect who was identified as Mrs. Charity Effiong is presently cooling her heels in detention at Central Police Station, Awka, when one found the girl wandering at around 10.30pm from where she reported the matter to the police, after she spent over 30 minutes washing off the pepper in Nwali’s organs.

Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) OF Anambra State Police Command, Haruna Mohammed, confirmed the arrest but added that the suspect denied applying pepper in her victim’s private part.
