BAYELSA: Little House maid pounded by her madam (Photo)
A young girl who works as a house help has several times been severely beaten by her madam. A neighbour within the vicinity reported that there was hardly a day the woman did not to batter the girl. The neighbor added that she beat her without any reason.
Yesterday, the 12th of May, the maltreatment meted out to the child was blown out of proportion as the girl was mercilessly beaten to the extent that her face became swollen and she developed visual impairment because her eyes were shut.
A concerned neighbor who could no longer tolerate the beating out the child alerted others. They caught the madam and dragged her to the town hall where she was almost beaten up if not for the little baby she was carrying on her back.
The Police were informed and they are now involved in the matter.
