No Hiding Place For Evil Father Responsible For Baby Miracle’s Ordeal – Imo First Lady, Her Excellency Barr. Chioma Uzodimma

On October 24, 2022, distressing images of a two-month old infant boy named Miracle, who had been brutally beaten by his father till his right hand became gravely injured went viral. Miraculously, the infant is still alive and undergoing care at the pediatric ward of Federal Medical Center, Owerri.

On my behalf, the Head of Child Department at the Ministry of Women Affairs and Vulnerable Groups Imo State, Mr. Benjamin Amaefula, reaffirmed the infant’s stable condition after the sad amputation of his right hand.

The 20 year old mother of the baby, Favour Chikwe, explained how the victim’s father impeded her ability to obtain immediate medical care for their child.

The 31 year old culprit, Mr. Confidence Amatobi, a native of Amurie in Isu LGA of Imo State, who has since gone into hiding while trying to evade justice has been declared wanted and therefore, is being sought by law enforcement agencies.

Our appreciation goes to the Imo State Chairperson of Nigerian Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ), Dr. Dorothy Nnaji, the Imo State Coordinator of National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), Mrs. Ukachi Ukah, Doctors, Nurses, and all good citizens who collaborated to make sure that baby Miracle got the medical attention he needed.

We will provide the infant’s mother with the required assistance in the interim and remain committed to preventing and eliminating forms of child abuse in the State. We will also ensure that his abuser is arrested and faces the full weight of the law as no stone will be left unturned in the fight to get justice for baby Miracle.
