Lady drills nails into the head of her 10-yr-old maid, tortures with pressing iron
One Mrs Ifeoma Ezeugwu has been arrested for allegedly nailing-in two places- the head of her 10 year old housemaid.
Chairperson to the WomenAid collective, prof, Joy Ngozi Ezeilo stated that her office was alerted on Friday about the case.
Dgovscoops gathered that the suspect also tortured the girl with a hot pressing iron.
She stated, “This is gory and torture of a young innocent girl whose only crime is being born to a poor widow who had to give her up to live with someone in the hope that she will get an education and survive.
We pray that she recovers. We demand full wrath of law on this woman that inflicted such a level of physical injury on this girl.
I spoke to the distraught mother of the victim. She is a poor widow living in a rural village in Aka, near Nsukka Enugu state. It is time to eradicate child Labour, ban and punish heavily anyone using children as domestic help.
The Child Rights Act and the NAPTIP must be effectively enforced. WACOL will follow through to ensure that justice is served in this matter”
