According to eyewitnesses, the trafficked Nigerian girl who was pushed down from the top floor of Lake view condo in Cyberjaya by her boss, fractured her legs as a result of the fall and she is currently receiving medical attention at a hospital in the area.

Few days ago, we reported that Benin Monarch, Oba Ewuare II, assembled sorcerers and top magic-practicing priests of the Kingdom to place curses on native doctors and herbalists and all others who aid human traffickers by administering oaths of secrecy on their victims.
Also cursed were kidnappers, violators of the order banning Community Development Associations and others whose business is to initiate sons and daughters of the kingdom into various cult groups.
Those who carried out the swearing exercise were the Ohen Okhuae, Ohen Ovia, Ohen n’Oriyekeogba, Ohen Ake, Ohen Niwuo, Native Doctors, Ohen Sango, Odionwere, Iwueki and the Enigies.
It would also be recalled that the Director-General of the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), Dame Julie Okah-Donli, had during a visit to the Benin monarch a few weeks ago, disclosed that the agency found it difficult to prosecute offenders because the victims were not willing to come to court to testify against their traffickers due to the oaths of secrecy administered on them.
Oba Ewuare in his remark during the ceremony, said those aiding and abetting human trafficking through the use of black magic and subjecting them to the oaths of secrecies should desist from it henceforth or face the wrath of the gods.
“You native doctors whose business is to subject people to the oath of secrecies and encouraging this evil act on the land, you have to repent, stop doing it. This is not a joking matter and if you do not repent, you have to wait for the repercussion,” he said.
The Monarch noted that the palace is not against those practicing sorcery, but seriously frowned at those who use it to perpetrate evil in the land through aiding and abetting human trafficking in the State.
He said henceforth those who were under oaths of secrecy administered on them by human traffickers had been set free and at liberty to air their views and reveal their sponsors without fear of any harm from their sponsors.
“We want to use this medium to tell those who are under any oaths of secrecy that they are now free. We revoke the oaths today,” he said.
