Young Girl Beaten And Abandoned After Being Accused Of Being A Witch In Akwa Ibom


Danish aid worker, Anja Ringgren Loven, has taken to Facebook to share photos of a young girl, Philomena,  six months since she was rescued in Akwa Ibom State.

Philomena was accused of being a witch, hence the reason she was beaten and sent away.

From the pictures shared by the aid, Philomena looks happier and healthier than when she was discovered.
 “It’s been 6 months now since we rescued Philomena. Philomena was beaten and abandoned because she was accused of being a witch.

Today I took these pictures of her after Mary did her hair. She is so so so beautiful and what a difference in her eyes compared to the day we rescued her. Love is the greatest healing power there is.” Ms. Loven wrote in a Facebook post on Sunday, April 2, 2023.
