This was the straws that broke the camel’s back. We called the DPO of the station nearest to the crime scene and directed the caller to go and make a formal report there. The woman was arrested & detained. We got in to Aguda Police station the next morning & saw the gory sight of Glory. One of the policewomen on duty the night she came in, said they had to buy palm oil to pour into her private part because she was still shouting that she was feeling peppery sensations inside her. The food that was bought & given to her at the station was wolfed down with speed that it was obvious Glory was stealing out of hunger. Immediately the case was taken in to the DPO’s office & he saw the maltreatment, he asked Rachel “how many children she had, she said three boys”, then he asked her again “will you beat them like this or allow another person to do same to them?” She answered that, it was frustration that caused it but the DPO was furious and ordered that the case be charged straight to court. She was arraigned in Magistrate court 4 in Surulere then later remanded in custody. Glory Monday was taken to a home for proper treatment and care till her mother came to pick her..
