Judge advises 27-year-old woman to work toward winning her parents’ love



A 27-year-old woman,  who allegedly bit and threatened to poison her father told a Grade I Area Court, Kubwa, on Tuesday that she had been neglected by her family.

The police charged Maduakar with criminal intimidation, assault and mischief, which she pleaded not guilty to on Feb.19.

At the resumed hearing of the matter, Maduakar told the court that her family had left her on her own and refused to cater to her needs.

” My family have refused to take care of me, they neglect me and I dont have money to maintain myself.

” I graduated from Secondary School in 2011 and gained admission into the University of Abuja in 2015 but i do not receive support from home, ” Maduakar said.

Mother of the defendant, Mrs Gloria Maduakar said the family had tried their best to make the defendant a better person to no avail.

” She has refused to change her ways, she does not respect or regard me as a mother, I always tell her that she can only have one mother in life and not two.

” My husband is in the village at the moment but we put her through school and she did not complete her University degree due to her way of life.

” Her elder sister is settled and married with children but Maduakar sleeps around and comes back home after a week” she said.

The prosecution counsel, John Okpa told the court that the Maduakars had resolved to agree on terms of settlement and would put it in writing before the next adjourned date.

The Judge, Mr Muhammad Adamu urged the defendant to respect her parents and work towards being a better and responsible person by winning the love of her family back.

Adamu however adjourned the case until Oct.22 for report of settlement.

The News Agency of Nigeria recalls that the defendant’s mother reported the matter at Area Command Headquarters, Kubwa, Abuja on Feb. 6.

The defendant allegedly threatened to poison her father, Mr Samuel Maduakar, to death, if he further attempted to terminate her tailoring apprenticeship, sometime in August, 2019.

The prosecution counsel revealed that the defendant inflicted her father with an injury on his right arm by biting him with her tooth and damaged his Techno cellphone, value unknown, on Feb. 11.

The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of sections 397, 265 and 327 of the Penal Code.

The defendant was remanded in prison on Feb.19 but eventually released on bail on the said month by the court.
