Mrs Ifeoma Ozougwu and her husband, Mr Jude Ozougwu have been remanded at the Nsukka prison, in Enugu, for brutalising their 10-year-old house help, Miss Nneoma Nnadi.
Igbere TV reports that the couple were arraigned at the court in Enugu on Monday and sent to the Nsukka prison till August when the court will hear their bail application.
The woman and her husband, Mr. Ozougwu, who reside at Thinkers Corner, Enugu, and hail from Aku in Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area, had inflicted various degrees of injuries on the little child.
This prompted their arrest by the Enugu State Police Command, and rescue of the victim – who is now receiving treatment at the ESUT Teaching Hospital, Parklane, Enugu.
The Enugu State Governor, Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi had earlier approved the award of scholarship, up to university level, to the little house help and promised that state govt will offset her medical bills.
