    part one

    Enugwu-ukwu one of the ancient communities
    in Anambra state has just released a new law
    guiding the Burial/Funeral rites in the
    According to them “Burials in recent times
    have continued to attract wastage; of time,
    money and other resources‘ The following laws
    are aimed to stem these wastage and save
    embarrassment to those who strive to compete
    in giving the so-called “befitting burial” to
    their dead ones. We value human beings but
    that does not warrant frivolous expenditure in
    the mist of extreme poverty.”
    The announcement of the passing on of
    persons in the following categories must show
    respect to the deceased:-
    1. The Town’s Traditional Ruler
    2. A Cabinet Chief
    3′. Ozo titled holder
    4. Member of Traditional Council
    (a). in the case of the Traditional Ruler,
    nobody is authorised to announce his passage
    unless after the cabinet meets for that
    purpose‘ The announcement would be by the
    Onowu or Onosolu Eze in the presence.
    To lessen the burden of walling for families to
    bury their deceased particularly at Christmas
    seasons, all forms of burial ceases by
    December 20th while resumption to burial is
    from 10th January.
    This is another area that requires rigid
    control. Therefore only the following dishes
    must not be exceeded in any burial/funeral
    ceremony. Introduction of any other food
    delicacies attract heavy fine as would be
    detailed below:
    Rice – White rice with stew or joilof only.
    Swallow – Wheat, Semavita or Garri.
    Soup – Only onugbu or egusi soup.
    Drinks – Modestly reasonable to follow the
    pattern of food.
    Gunshots- Canon shots are permitted but not
    single, double or pump action guns or any
    other type of gun.
    It is a known fact that at the point of dowry
    payment, also includes items for the burial of
    Nwada who passes on. This cultural practice
    would continue in he following modest
    consideration. Therefore on he demise of
    Nwada, the following shall be provided
    These have made our environment untidy;
    therefore all must be removed within fourteen
    (14) days following burial.
    I. Service of songs beyond 8.00pm –
    Ii. Period of burial/funeral beyond the
    stipulated 2 days – N150,000.00.
    lli. Misuse of casket/corpse for showmanship
    is disrespect to the dead N100,000.00.
    Iv. Entertainment above the stipulated/
    recommendation N150,0DD.0O.
    V. Environmental degradation by use of
    posters/billboards after 14 days would attract
    N5,000.00 for everyday they are not removed.

    OUR UNRELIABLE APROKO reports the elders
    in the community are currently deliberating on
    making rules concerning traditional marriage
    and dowry payments because it is apparent
    some families are already looking to give their
    daughters out to Arab and Chinese men so
    they can lavish money excessively, preventing
    able young men from finding suitable wives.
    part two

    The police have arrested a woman, identified
    only as Bassey, for allegedly inserting a stick
    of broom dipped in pepper into the private
    parts of a nine-year-old boy, identified as
    Promise, in the Ebute-Meta area of Lagos
    PUNCH Metro Aproko learnt that Bassey had
    accused the victim, who was her nephew, of
    stealing N2,000.
    Forcing him to confess to the crime, the
    mother of four allegedly resorted to the
    extreme measure.
    Neighbours, who had reportedly observed the
    continuous abuse of Promise, reported the
    case to the police at the Iponri division.
    Promise was said to have been taken to a
    hospital, where the stick of broom was
    PUNCH Aproko gathered that officials of the
    Lagos State Office of the Public Defender had
    taken the victim to a government shelter.
    A neighbour, who did not want to be
    identified, said Promise had been living with
    Bassey on Ashaka Street for the past five
    years, adding that his parents were late.
    He said, “Promise is the son of Bassey’s elder
    sister. His mother brought him to live with her
    so she could assist him with his education.
    “The boy was formerly in a private public
    school, but he was withdrawn immediately his
    mother died. His father is also late. Since that
    time, she turned him into an errand boy.
    “I have known the boy for three years now and
    can categorically say that he is always being
    “There was a time the guardian beat him up
    and tortured him with a needle. She starved
    the boy for three days.
    “On another occasion, she sent the boy out of
    the house in the night and left him outside till
    He added that despite having four children
    from different men, Bassey had never
    maltreated her own kids.
    Another tenant said matters got to a head on
    Wednesday, January 4, when the suspect
    allegedly inserted a stick of broom which had
    been dipped in pepper into Promise’s joystick
    for allegedly stealing N2,000.
    He said, “She said she was looking for N2,000
    and accused the boy of stealing it. She beat
    him up with a stick and used red pepper to
    rub his whole body. The boy was screaming,
    yet she did not stop.
    “After that, she inserted a stick of broom,
    dipped in Cameroon pepper, into the boy’s
    private parts.
    “We could not bear it again and we reported
    the abuse to the police at the Iponri division.
    She was arrested and is still in police
    The tenant said some relatives of the suspect
    had been threatening to deal with them for
    reporting the case to the police.
    The Director of the OPD, Mrs. Salami
    Olubukola, confirmed that Promise had been
    taken into custody.
    She said, “It is absolutely shocking how adults
    mete out extreme punishment to kids for
    minor offences. How can one justify inserting
    a stick of broom into the private parts of a
    boy? What if the broom had broken inside the
    boy’s private parts? He would have been
    damaged for life.
    “No matter the offence, adults must learn to
    control their temper when dealing with
    children. I hope she can reflect on her wicked
    actions and change while in detention.”
    Olubukola said the agency would intensify
    campaign to reduce child abuse in the state.
    The Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo
    Badmos, confirmed the incident, adding that
    the suspect had been remanded in prison.
    “I confirm the case. The suspect has been
    charged to court and remanded in custody,”
    she said.
    OUR UNRELIABLE APROKO reports a source
    from the Nigerian Army told him that they are
    in discussion with the Nigeria police over
    handing the suspect over to them, her skills in
    the act of torture would be greatly needed in
    making hardened Boko Haram fighters talk
    during interrogation.
