A footage had emerged showing the embarrassment faced by a 4-year-old girl who was accused of witchcraft in Plateau State because her bre asts were developed at her age.
The girl was taken to a certain church where she was publicly stripped totally nak£d and accused of being possessed.
The church members concluded that it was ‘the work of the devil’, as they prepared to carry out a ‘deliverance’ session on her.
The 4-year-old’s much bloated stomach was also considered as pregnancy by members of the church
A medical explanation as analysed by WEB MD stated:
“Puberty starts on average in girls between ages 8-13 and in boys between ages 9-14.
Doctors diagnose early puberty when this normal process starts early and continues to progress through growth spurts and bone maturation, usually for reasons we don’t understand. Girls who show significant signs of puberty and its progression before age 7 and boys before age 9 are considered precocious. About 1 out of 5,000 children are affected.
