In a video interview with a local news outlet, Ukwani Trumpet, the 21-year-old lady recounted how her mother chopped off her two hands and slashed her face with a matchet.
Glory, who disclosed that the incident occurred in 2013 when she was 12-years-old, said 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.
The young lady said she doesn’t know the reason behind her mother’s action, but noted that she’s deceased now.
“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. The incident happened in Edo State in 2013.”
Glory, who said she has only completed her primary school education due to her condition, is requesting for financial assistance to start up a business to fend for herself or further her education.
