Chinonye Nneoma Nnadi was living with the Ozougwus as a maid.

But the couple maltreated her.

She had two nails drilled on her skull and hot iron burns on her body.

Her plight was reported to the police, which swiftly moved to rescue her.

  • Look at the woman sef. Person when never chop belle full dey carry house maid. If not laziness, she is young and can work. Minus the maltreatment, carrying such age for a maid is child abuse. Mordern day slavery. Parents please stop giving your little children out as maids. If you know you are poor and cant take care of a child do not give birth to one. If you must give birth manage whatever you have with your child rather than destroy him or her psychological and destroy her childhood. This maids go through alot. Work that madam cannot do is what they subject this little children to. And oga if you want your wife to have a maid. Go and get an adult that you can pay. They must be matured enough and of working age. And you pay them well also because they do everything your wife cant do. Some women just want to sitdown and eat and produce children in the home and let their husbands hire people to do their domestic chores, and enjoy people calling them madam from left right and centre. Rubbish. This is one of the reasons nigeria and africa is still backward today.
