Child Abuse: Woman Tortures, Blinds 12-Year-Old House Help In Lagos

A wicked woman based in Lagos, has taken child abuse to another height by blinding her 12-year-old houseboy identified as Peter, New Telegraph reports.  It was gathered that young boy who is from Togo, and was employed by the woman, had been suffering severe beating in the hands of the woman. The little boy has therefore lost an eye in one of such cruel beatings

According to neighbours at 14b, Olu Akerele Street, Balogun Bus Stop off Awolowo Way, Ikeja, residence of the woman, the woman descended on the poor boy because he did not wash a kettle properly and in the process, injured his eye. The residents who could no longer withstand her cruelty, reported the case to the police and the woman was arrested.

A resident who identified herself as Tayo, narrated how the incident happened: “We feared the unexpected with the manner the woman used to beat the boy. He has a deep sore on his leg. When I asked him about it, he said it was burnt from fire. He said the swollen eye was caused by beating from his madam for not washing a kettle properly.

He has been subjected to violence for a long time. You know everybody used to mind his or her business in the compound. When I saw the boy last, he was looking sickly. Hence I decided to seek help from the appropriate agency.”

Another resident said the woman was well known for being violent and was avoided by everyone in the area. “If the boy comes to watch television with them in the parlor, he would be beaten. On school days, you will see the boy leaving home around 9.30a.m. This is an ideal case of child abuse and child labour. We need the intervention of child protection network in his case.”
