The Nigeria Security And Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), Ondo State Command, has arrested on Mrs. Abimbola Oreoluwa for allegedly scalding her 12 years old houseboy with hot water and brutalizing him with a razor blade.
Mr. Pedro Awili, the State Commandant of NSCDC, disclosed that Abimbola was arrested on Friday mourning when a Good Samaritan alerted the Command on how she had been maltreating her houseboy.
Awili explained that Abimbola inflicted series of injuries on the little boy with a razor blade and poured hot water on him, accusing the boy of stealing her things.
“Our investigation revealed that the boy is from the Benin Republic and the woman got him through his master in Abeokuta, Ogun state. He brought him as a houseboy and paid N120,000 to his master.
We are going to arrest the man in Abeokuta because this is a child abuse and human trafficking.
The woman has been maltreating the boy. She doesn’t allow him to go to school, she seriously abuses the boy by beating him up for any little mistake he makes” he said.
