A Nigerian woman identified as Ogochukwu Anichukwu has been called out alongside her husband for allegedly pouring hot water on her eight year old house help for licking milk.
It was gathered that Ogochukwu and her husband Emmanuel Anichukwu are in the habit of maltreating the young girl.
According to Jane Iyke who shared the story on Facebook the couple have been reported to the human right legal initiative in Ekwulobia, Anambra State.
“This case is before Human right legal initiative Ekwulobia Anambra State already but if you know this girl Mma from Awgu Enugu State,kindly advise the family to come and pick their child before they bring her back in corpse.
“This child is living with Mrs Ogochukwu Anichukwu from Ndikelionwu and Mr. Emmanuel Anichukwu from Enugu State as a househelp in Nanka Anambra state.
“This girl’s offense was that she licked the milk meant for her baby, she poured hot water on her and locked her inside so that neighbors won’t see her in that state.
“The neighbours confirmed to have seen the girl eating sand severally because of starvation. She’s now used to flogging which was why the woman used hot water this time.
“The neighbor that reported to the Human rights legal aid according to them entered their house
unexpectedly and caught Mma trying to run inside to avoid been seen as she was vehemently warned not to allow anyone see her. The girl is now in the hospital for proper medical care.”, she added.

Danny Obi: For crying out loud 8yrs is just a child, 8yrs just crossed from being a toddler .. what can an 8yrs old child do for one as chores .. 8yrs old baby needs as much milk as she or he can get.. no Mother will have the mind to give out an 8yrs old baby for a house help if all is well with the child’s Mother.. God some women are monsters. That baby is malnourished.. 😭😭😭😭
Vitamin Dee: Someone should tell this bag of flesh to Unpour the hot water please…I want to buy you 3 tins of milk,Milo,sugar,cornflakes and quaker oats…but if you can’t unpour it….Nkita ga atakwa gi..see how she looks like a corpse that was dumped in d river for days….witch
God’stime Akpovowovo: Why should an 8 years old child be a house help in the first place??? The person who gave out this child as a house help is more wicked than the woman who poured the hot water, mtceeeeew, except I should believe that this story is not true
Amarachi Nna: Wrong what she did is wrong and y would a parent give their 8 years old child as house help she is not even in teenage age still a little girl
Nwokoro Ebuka: The 8 years old girl is a little child, The fact is, it’s pure Child Abuse to have a 8 years old as a house help, it’s normal for every child to lick milk, pouring hot water on the child wasn’t the way to discipline the child, talking to the child or using cane would have been the best
