Police authorities in Lagos have arrested a woman, Ifeoma Mbakwe,who bathed her 9-year-old housemaid, identified as Chinwedu Precious with hot water at the Alagbado area of the state.
It was gathered that the victim’s cries attracted neighbours who immediately rushed her to REM-YEMS Hospital, Alagbado where she is currently receiving treatment.
The 26-year old 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.’
Mbakwe, 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.
