The Lagos state government under the leadership of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has finally come to the help of a housemaid that was battered and bathed with hot water by her wicked boss.

The Lagos State Government has come to the succour of a young nine-year-old housemaid identified as Precious Chinwendu who was bathed with hot water by her evil boss for allegedly stealing crayfish by adopting her.

According to the information from the office of Public Defender, the Lagos state government under the directive of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode had moved the primary three pupil, who hails from Orlu, Imo State, from Rem-Yems Hospital in the Agbado area of Lagos, where she had been on admission since December 28, 2015.

According to reports, the Director OPD, Mrs. Omotola Rotimi, said Governor Akinwumi Ambode and the state Attorney General, instructed the agency to cater to the girl.

She said, “The attention of the governor and the Attorney General was drawn to the plight of Precious Chinwedu, whose boss poured hot water on. We were instructed to take over the matter and the girl has been taken from the hospital with the help of the police. She is now in our protective custody.”

Rotimi said OPD would provide a legal representative for the victim for the prosecution of the case.
“Henceforth, our legal representative will appear in court on behalf of the victim and we will ensure that the case is diligently prosecuted to get justice for her,” she added.

It would be recalled that on January 12, 2016, Chinwedu’s boss, Ifeoma Mbakwe, had on December 27, 2015, sent her to bring the crayfish in the kitchen but she could not find it. The woman, however, accused her of eating the crayfish and went ahead to torture and bath her with hot water which left her body with burns and scar.

The woman has been arraigned in court and will soon be sentenced.
