A 24-year old commercial sex worker identified as Favour who had pepper inserted in her private part for allegedly stealing an iPhone has narrated her ordeal.
According to her, she was accused of strong the phone and then taken to a native doctor. She said when they got there, the native doctor used voodoo to put bullets in her belly, which made her to confess to the crime.
After they left the native doctor’s place, she revealed to her accusers that she didn’t steal any phone. It was then they got angry, stripped off her clothes and inserted pepper into her private part.
Joel Igbinovia, the owner of the missing iPhone Xs-Max, said the victim and her female friend were invited to a hotel at Ugbiyoko, a suburb of Benin city, to entertain his friends.
“The girl was a prostitute. My younger cousin called her to the hotel and she came with another girl. I got up to pay my hotel bill on POS, but when I got back to my seat, my phone was no longer where I put it and the girls were gone. I asked why and I was told that the girls said the money we offered was too small.
“We searched everywhere but we couldn’t find the phone. We then went to another hotel where the girls had gone to and we met them there. I then pleaded with the girl (Ada) to return the phone to me because she would not be able to use it, being an iPhone, but she denied. It was then decided that we invite a voodoo man the following day to resolve the issue,” he said.
