Young Lady Arrested By The Police In Umuahia For Pouring Hot Water, Pepper On Her Maid
A young lady from Aboh Mbaise, Imo State, who lives in Umuahia Abia State capital and goes by the name Mrs. Zazi David, is cooling her head off in the police cell after she allegedly attacked her 10-year-old maid with hot water and ground pepper, leaving the skin of the kid peeled off.
It was a bizarre scene as the child, who could not seat or lie down because of the wounds, writhe in agony over the astounding attacks by her madam at the police station. According to reports, the 10-year-old maid whose name was given as Ifunanya, lives with her madam at a housing estate behind Saclux Paint off Aba Road, in Umuahia.
Mrs. Zazi David, had been regularly inflicting pain on her ward, resulting in series of scars on her body. The latter occurred last Sunday when she (Zazi David) doused her victim with hot water boiled.
The source said “her body radiates like a kaleidoscope, and that “It seems that she (Mrs Zazi) has been scourging the child for sometime before she finally doused her with the hot water.
“The cat was let out of the bag on Sunday when the suspect forced the little girl to drink boiling hot water. This time, the horrendous attack burnt the little girl’s lips, her mouth throat, voice box and esophagi, thus making it difficult for the girl to even breathe’.
A source further said “Perhaps, fearing that the girl may die in her home, Mrs. Zazi had to take the girl to a local chemist for treatment. The chemist operator on seeing the enormous wounds inflicted on the girl advised the woman to take the girl to a hospital, but the suspect rejected the suggestion, prompting the patent medicine dealer to raise alarm.
The Police Public Relations Officer of the Abia State Police Command, Geoffrey Ogbonna, a Superintendent of Police, confirmed the story and assured that the suspect will be prosecuted as soon as the police conclude their investigations on the matter.
