A 57-year-old woman, Ahemen Jam, has been remanded in prison by a Chief Magistrate court in Makurdi the Benue state capital for assault and grievous hurt on her house help

Jam and her son Ornguga Jam are accused of beating their house help and inflicting injury on his buttocks. 

The Police prosecutor, Inspector Jonah Olutu informed the court that "on March 24th, 2023, at about 0800hrs, a distress call was received at ‘E’ Division Police Station, Makurdi, that one Mrs Ahemen Jam of behind ‘E’ Division Police Station Makurdi conspired with her son Ornguga Jam and beat their house help, Kpamor Jir, thereby inflicting wounds on his buttocks. 

Olutu said the Police swung into action and took the victim to Benue State University Teaching Hospital, where he is receiving treatment.

He however said that during the Police investigation, Ahemen Jam was arrested for committing the crime while her son Ornguga Jam is still at large.

The Prosecutor stated that Investigation further revealed that, the injury was inflicted on the child between March 17, 2023, to March 24, 2023, by beating the child daily with an electric cable, and the suspect who brought the said Kpamor Jir from Konshsha LGA did not take the victim to any Hospital for medical attention.

The police officer said  Ahemen Jam was still compelling the victim to fetch water and carry out other numerous house chores for her and her son before the neighbours discovered the injury and raised alarm. 

According to the Police, the offence contravenes Sections 97, 266 and 248 of the Penal Code Law of Benue State, 2004.
