Glory Smart Emenuwe is a 21-year-old lady from Ezhionum community in Delta State, who has had to live with a disability following the wicked actions of her mother.
Glory described in a video interview with a local news site, Ukwani Trumpet, how her mother cut off her two hands and sliced her face with a machete for no reason. She stated that disclosed that the incident occurred in 2013 when she was just 12-years-old.
According to the video, her mother had escorted her to urinate at the back of the house at night when she attacked her with the weapon and disfigured her for life.
Read her statement below;
“What happened to me could be likened to an accident because I never expected it. However, it was my mother that chopped off my hands and slashed my face.
On that fateful day, while I was still very young, I woke up one night wanting to urinate, so my father asked my mother to lead me with a torchlight to the back of our house where I could urinate.
While I squatted to urinate, I didn’t know my mother had a machete in her hand. The next thing I remember was that she descended on me with the machete and I fell down. While I was down, she continued to cut me all over my body and I was screaming. It was then that my father rushed out and collected the machete from her and raised an alarm, which attracted the neighbours.
Unfortunately, by the time my father rushed out, my mother had already accomplished her intention. My father wanted to use the machete on her too but was stopped by the neighbours. Afterwards, my father got my mother arrested by the police. However, she’s late now.”
