A 9-year-old girl, identified as Chinwedu Precious, was recently bathed in hot water by her employer to whom she was a house help at the Alagbado area of Lagos State.
The victim has been rushed to REM-YEMS Hospital, Alagbado where she is currently receiving treatment according to PM News. The employer, Mrs. Ifeoma Mbakwe, who resides at Idowu Street, Alagbado, was arrested by youths of the area who handed her over to the police after the said ‘dastardly act.’
The employer, Mrs Mbakwe, 26, an indigene of Anambra State, has been reportedly arraigned in an unnamed court. An angry resident, who identified herself as Mrs. Joy Sunday, described the action of Mrs. Mbakwe as dastardly act of wickedness of the highest order.
“The action of Mrs. Mbakwe is a disgrace to us who are women. How can a mother do this kind of a thing to another woman’s child?” Mrs. Sunday queried, urging relevant authorities to make sure she is prosecuted to serve as a lesson to others.
Meanwhile, as at press time, the incident was yet to be confirmed by the police authorities.
