A 14-year-old girl has allegedly jumped down from a four-storey building to avoid being flogged by her guardian. DAILY POST gathered that the incident happened in Awada, a highly populated neighbourhood in Onitsha, Anambra State. A source said the girl, Ijeoma Nwafor, is a housemaid to a woman, whose name was given as Nnenna Onwanna, who was used to beating her at every slight opportunity. She, however, survived the jump and is currently said to be receiving treatment in an undisclosed hospital in Onitsha. Contrary to confirmation from sources in the area, the state police command’s spokesperson, DSP Toochukwu Ikenga who confirmed the incident said the girl was pushed down by her guardian and tagged it a case of attempted murder.
