Enugu Police command has arrested a 24-year-old woman, Ifeoma Ozuogu for allegedly inflicting injuries on her 10-year-old house help, Nneoma Nnadi.

Mr. Ozuogu was also arrested, after his wife tortured their househelp, Nnadi.

Mrs. Ozuogu used hot iron, knife, nail and hammer to inflict injuries on the little girl, Nnadi.

The incident took place on Wednesday at Aku in Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area of Enugu State.

The househelp was said to have carried her madam’s baby in bid to pamper her to sleep, around 12am, only for the baby to mistakenly fall from her to the ground.

Although, there was no physical or internal injury on the baby after the fall, Ozuogu descended heavily on the girl over the incident by burning her skin with hot iron and also using nail to puncture her head.

More so, Ozuogu was said to have inserted pepper into the little girl’s vagina and locked her up in the toilet for refusing to wash the plates.

It however, took the intervention of neighbours who rushed to her rescue after hearing her screaming.

The neighbors took her to the hospital for treatment.

Meanwhile, the police have been accused of trying to set the culprits free or scuttle justice after the accused offered them bribe.

The Commissioner of Police in the state is said to have taken up the matter and vowed to charge the couple to court on Monday.
