FURTHER intensive medical Investigations have been done by the team of doctors handling the treatment of 10-year-old Ifunanya.
 
 Ifunanya is the young girl whose case in Umuahia went viral after her mistress, Esther Orjiugo Zazi Kelechi David forced hot water down the young child’s throat for reportedly breaking a plate. 
 
Current diagnosis reveal that Ifunanya has OESOPHAGEAL AND PYLORIC STENOSIS, which, in layman’s terms simply means there has been extensive damage to her oesophagus and stomach making it difficult for food to enter her stomach. She has only been taking fluids at the hospital.
 
To this end, Wife of the Governor of Abia State, Nkechi Ikpeazu, who is funding the entire treatment of the girl, has directed that the little girl be flown to Abuja for continued management and possible corrective surgeries. 
 
Investigations have also revealed that the young girl was serially abused and mistreated by David, leaving many injuries including a broken collar-bone, which was sustained when her mistress allegedly threw her down on the ground and viciously stepped on her neck, shoulder, and chest. The doctors will also handle that injury. 
 
Meanwhile, the case between Abia State Government and the police versus David came up yesterday at the State High Court, Umuahia, before Justice KCJ Okereke for consideration on a bail application.
 
Director of public prosecutions, Abia State,  Ngozi Obioma appeared for the prosecution while  Chilaka Anyanwu, lawyer appeared for the defendant,  David. 
 
After submissions and arguments for and against bail by both sides, Justice KCJ Okereke adjourned sitting to September 30, for ruling on the bail application.
