Woman Tortues Her 12-Year Old Housemaid To Blind

15:36:00

A woman named Gloria At No 14b, Olu Akerele street, Balogun bus/stop off Awolowo way, Ikeja, Lagos has been arrested by the police after she blinded one of the eyes of her 12-year-old houseboy "Peter", following brutal and frequent torture.


 Gloria had employed the Togo based minor to assist her with house chores but unfortunately, the housemaid has been suffering several beatings from the woman and in one of such cruel beatings, Peter lost an eye.



It was reported that the woman had beaten Peter because he did not wash the kettle properly. Instead of telling him to wash the kettle again, she descended on him and in the process, she injured his eye.

One of her neighbours disclosed to the police that, Gloria is very violent and is usually avoided by everyone in the area.



He said, "If the boy comes to watch television with them in the parlor, he would be beaten. On school days, you will see the boy leaving home around 9.30a.m."

"We feared the unexpected with the manner the woman used to beat the boy. He has a deep sore on his leg. When we asked him about it, he said it was burnt from fire. He said the swollen eye was caused by beating from his madam for not washing a kettle properly."

"He has been subjected to violence for a long time. You know everybody used to mind his or her business in the compound. When I saw the boy last, he was looking sickly. Hence I decided to seek help from the appropriate agency."



"This is an ideal case of child abuse and child labour. We need the intervention of child protection network in his case,"



We are still waiting to hear from the police anyway.
