The Anambra State Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Welfare has intervened in the case concerning a traditional healer, Chijioke Okaa, and an orphan named Victoria Mbachu.

Okaa and Mbachu’s boyfriend, Olufemi Salako, are already standing trial at an Nnobi Chief Magistrate Court for tricking Mbachu, a mother of four, to sign documents for her land on the pretext that they would pay her N10 million and build a house for her, which they have failed to do.

Salako had also, at a stage, attempted to traffic Mbachu and her children to Benin Republic, but luck ran out him when security operatives intercepted their telephone conversations.

The matter was brought to the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons, NAPTIP, which rescued the lady and her children and took them to an orphanage home in Ogbaru local government area of the state where they are currently staying.

However, the Anambra State Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Welfare, Mrs Ifeyinwa Obinabo, on Thursday took up the matter with a view to ensuring that the native doctor was made to face the law.

Obinabo was informed that the native doctor is already constructing a two- storey building on the land belonging to Mbachu.



“We will take up the matter from here because this matter amounts to abuse of the lady who has been rendered homeless,”
Obinabo said.

At the ministry’s headquarters yesterday, Mbachu said: “Okaa destroyed my house in the village and he is building on the land and I am now homeless.”
