In Imo State, a man has been arrested for committing inhumane offence.
The man named Uzoma Egemba was arrested for scalding the buttocks, thighs and body of his 12-year-old maid for riding his children’s bicycle.
Egemba who hails from Mbaise was arrested at his Umuguma residence in the early hours of Thursday following efforts made by some concerned citizens, led by social media influencer, Darlington Ibekwe, and an activist journalist, Chidiebube Okeoma.
Egemba, who is currently in detention at New Owerri Police Divisional Headquarters, blamed the devil for his action.
He said that he burnt the girl’s body on Sunday after he saw her riding the bicycle he bought for his children.
The concerned Nigerians took interest in the girl’s case following a video clip made by her school teacher which went viral on Wednesday.
Okeoma thereafter took the girl to Imo specialist hospital Umuguma- Owerri, where she was admitted.
