See How a Pregnant Housewife Tortured Her Underaged Househelp for Stealing Food

Juliet Ozoarinze, a pregnant housewife, who lives around Ijesha, Surulere area of Lagos State, has been arrested  following multiple assaults on a 10-year-old girl, Blessing since she started living with her family in July 2017.

Punch reports that the mother of four used different objects on Blessing over allegations of being tardy in running errands, not being prompt in answering summons and practicing witchcraft.

She was also alleged to have used a knife to cut the little girl in the hand for allegedly stealing and eating the food meant for her own children.

Juliet’s arrest came after her husband, Kenneth, refused paying for Blessing’s medical treatment, but instead returned her to her aunt, Vivian, who gave the couple the child because Kenneth was a family friend, on Tuesday, October 17.

”Blessing’s mother lives in Abuja and she has four children, including her.

She had been saddled with the care of all the four girls. We thought the couple could assist with Blessing’s education in exchange for helping them with house chores. The man suddenly brought the girl back to our house.

I was alarmed at the extent of her injuries and she told me that Juliet had been torturing her since she started living with them.
