The Lagos State Police Command has on Friday 9th March 2018, arrested a mother of four, Nkeiruka Ngwu, of 36, of 47 Ogundana Street, off Allen Avenue, Ikeja, for brutalizing her 10- year -old househelp, Chioma Samuel, whom she brought to Lagos from Umuoju, Ngwu, Abia State sometime in January 2018 after the death of the girl’s father.
Rather than keeping the promise of good life she made to the girl, Ngwu made life a living hell for her. She was mentally and physically abused with many injury marks to show for it. .
Her latest tale of woes was recorded on Wednesday 7th of March, 2018, when the suspect allegedly used a well heated clothes iron to cause grievous injury on the victim’s hands and legs. She also poured hot water on her, which scalded her skin.
She met her Waterloo on Thursday 8 March, 2018, when she took her children to school. Unfortunately for her, the prying eyes of other mothers caught the wounds on the upper and lower limbs of the victim who accompanied the suspect to the school. .
After questioning the girl, they waited for her Madam who had gone to drop her kids in their different classrooms. When she finished and was about to drive off, she was confronted by these women who nearly mobbed her. .
The women told the suspect to take the girl to a hospital or else they would petition the Commissioner of Police Lagos State, but in spite of their warnings, Ngwu stubbornly went to the school on Friday 9th March, 2018, accompanied by the child victim whose wounds were manifestly untreated. .
On seeing that their warnings were taken for granted, the women made good their promise to call the attention of the Commissioner of Police,Lagos State to the matter and the suspect was arrested and will be charged to court tomorrow.
