Mrs. Iyema Oyemola Oyewole, a deaconess of Living Faith Church in Barnawa, Kaduna State, has been arrested after she subjected her ward, Princess, to a series of brutal torture. The 14-year-old girl lived with her parents in Kaduna until they were displaced by bandits following an attack on their community. As a result, Princess’ parents had to place their daughter in the home of the deaconess as they didn’t want her to be homeless.

While at the deaconess’ home, Princess was subjected to torture from the deaconess and from her children while the husband allegedly turned a blind eye. Princess was stopped from going to school. She was also made to sleep in the toilet and she had to drink water from the toilet when thirsty. In addition to all that, she was beaten frequently.

According to reports, the deaconess’ son punishes Princess and beats her at will, sometimes under the rain. Even the daughters of the Deaconess help hold Princess whenever their mother wants to torture her. The deaconess tortures the girl by putting a knife on fire till it’s hot before using it to burn Princess all over her face.

Photos of Princess show her with burns and scars all over her face, butt and vagina area. The deaconess also burns the girl’s vagina with lighter and sometimes inserts a hot stick into her vagina while her daughters help her hold the girl’s legs open. Afterwards, they would allegedly apply pepper to her vagina.

She also refused to let the girl’s parents see her each time they tried because she didn’t want them seeing the injuries on her body. Whenever Princess’ parents showed up, she told them they couldn’t come in because of Coronavirus. Eventually, Princess’ father became suspicious and got the NGOs involved. They were shocked at the state they finally saw Princess in.

When the deaconess was questioned, she said she didn’t know the fire she used to torture the girl was that hot.
“I didn’t know the fire was burning very well like that,” she allegedly said.
