According to a report by Punch, the young girl was exposed after she was discovered to have had boils in her private part.
She was reportedly taken to a gynaecologist, who found out what the young girl had been doing upon questioning.
It was further reported that the little girl revealed that she has been using a nail to “play with herself” secretly.
The girl further divulged that she has taught all her friends in school the act and had once been expelled from a school for this act.
The five year old orphan also disclosed that the domestic help in the house had taught her to use a nail to masturbate without the knowledge of her grandmother, who she lives with.
