A lady, Mrs. Ifeoma Ezeugwu, has been arrested by the Enugu state police command for allegedly drilling nails in two places into the head of the a-10-year-old girl, Miss Chinonye Nnadi, who acted as her midwife.

Chairman of the WomenAids Collective WACOL, Prof. Joy Ngozi Ezeilo, who took the plight of the little girl to the public, said her was informed on Friday about the case of Chinonye, who suffered severe physical harm from Ezeugwu, for whom she works as a domestic aid.

“This is gory and torture of a young innocent girl whose only crime is being born to a poor widow who had to give her up to live with someone in the hope that she will get an education and survive. We pray that she recovers. We demand full wrath of the law on this woman that inflicted such a level of physical injury on this girl.

I spoke to the distraught mother of the victim. She is a poor widow living in a rural village in Aku, near Nsukka, Enugu state. It is time to eradicate child labour, ban and punish heavily anyone using children as domestic help. The Child Rights Act and the NAPTIP Act must be effectively enforced. WACOL will follow through to ensure that justice is done in this matter” Ezeilo said
