Enugu Couple Brutalizes Maid

Jude, an employee of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), was arrested with his wife in July 2020 for maltreating their 10-year-old maid, Nneoma Nnadi.

Neighbours alleged that the couple subjected the victim to serious torture after they alleged she caused their baby to fall to the ground at their home in Aku in the Igbo-Etiti Local government area of the state.

Nnadi was said to have carried her mistress’ little baby to pamper her to sleep around midnight when the baby mistakenly fell to the ground.

Though there was no physical or internal injury suffered by the baby, the couple allegedly descended heavily on the girl over the incident by burning her skin with a hot pressing iron and also drilling a nail into her head.
