How wicked can a woman be to maltreat and brutalize an innocent 10-year-old girl in this manner?
How on earth would a parent take another person's child to serve him or her as a servant and end up maltreating the kid? Why would parents give out their little ones to strangers to work as slaves?
Those were the first questions that came to mind when one read the pathetic account of how a woman, a mother at that, maltreated and abused a 10-year-old girl she brought from the village to serve as her housemaid?
Just read this pathetic account as sent to Ladun Liadi blog by a reader:
"Good day Ladun,
I am a constant reader and commenter on your blog. Kindly get in touch with child protection services, because I couldn't locate any of them online.
I live (edited by me for security reasons) Lagos and I have a female neighbour who is a very wicked and heartless woman.
Presently, she has a house girl who is about 10 years old; this little girl does all the laundry in the house, takes care of the woman's 2 kids, cooks the meal and fill the big drum of water.. She awakes by 5am and doesn't sleep until it is past 12am and worst, she is ill-fed by this wicked woman, and the abused child's name is (edited by me).
The annoying thing is this little girl is the 4th girl that this woman has brought from her village to serve her; the previous little girls all ran back home because of her callousness and sheer wickedness towards them.
Last night, she beat the hell out of this little girl because of a trivial issue that happened in the house; she started beating her from 4am and didn't stop until past 6am, when I asked my wife to go confront her about this.
Please kindly get in touch with people who can take necessary actions against her, because I am scared that she would hurt this little girl badly or make her run away from home and then, something terribly might happen to her.
The wicked woman's name is (edited) and she lives in the boys quarter apartment of the address stated above.
I trust that with your publication, we will attract the attention of the people in authority.
Can people still be this wicked?
