Woman burns 9-year-old house girl with electric iron

When little Chinenye Emeka, a nine-year old girl from
Ebonyi State left her parents’ house to Iyiowa Odekpe in Ogbaru Local
Government Area of Anambra State. The poor parents had thought that their child
was going to work and earn some money.
 Little did
they know that the little girl would be brought back home with her two buttocks
fried with hot electric pressing iron by her guardian, Mrs. Ifechukwu Akabekwa.

 Mrs.
Ifechukwu Akabekwa, of Abazuonu Street in Iyi-Owa Odekpe, inflicted the bodily
injuries on Chinenye. Her offence? The girl used the sum of N1, 000 given to
her by a philanthropist to pay her school fees without the permission of her
guardian.

 
Trouble
started for the victim when her guardian refused to pay her school fees, saying
the girl had not been able to raise the fees from the little things she hawked
in the market. A philanthropist noticed that she had not been attending school
while the children of her madam were always in school and offered to pay the
N1, 000 school fees.
This
infuriated the woman as she allegedly reached for a hot electric iron, and with
it, burnt the girl’s buttocks and private parts. The suspect, a mother of
three, had allegedly been maltreating the girl, subjecting her to different
ordeals on a daily basis, including forcing her to hawk along the major road of
Atani during school hours.
Akabekwa has
been arrested by the policemen of  Iyiowa
Police Station, following complaints by her neighbours over the recent cruelty
she meted to her house-help.
