Corps Member And Husband Arrested For Allegedly Chaining Househelp Over N10 Sweet

A 26-year-old corps member and her husband have been arrested for allegedly maltreating their househelp.

Agatha Egodi Philip-Iboko, a mother-of-one, was apprehended alongside her husband Philip Iboko for allegedly torturing their eight-year-old househelp, Osinakachukwu.

Only days earlier, a photo of the househelp lying in the open, under the sun, her legs and hands chained together, went viral after a neighbour of the couple posted the photo online.

The neighbour explained that the young househelp was subjected to child abuse because she ate part of the N10 sweet they bought for their two-year-old daughter.

It angered Nigerians and they called for the arrest of the child’s guardians.

Following the arrest of Agatha and her husband, Osinakachukwu was placed in the custody of the council Chairman of the Izzi LGA, Chief Paul Nwogha.
