Nigerian woman, Zazi David, has been arrested by the Abia State police command for pouring hot water on her 10-year-old house girl, Ifunanya, over a broken plate.
According to The command’s spokesperson, Geoffrey Ogbonna, he says Mrs. Zazi David, also forced Ifunanya to drink a mixture of hot water and ground pepper, which burnt her throat, lips and mouth.
Mrs. Zazi David was arrested after the local chemist she took Ifu to raised an alarm over the terrible condition of the little girl. According to information, Ifunanya happens to be an orphan.
A source says:
“The cat was let out of the bag last week Sunday when Zazi forced the victim to drink hot water with pepper. This time, the horrendous attack burnt the little girl’s lips, mouth and throat.”
“Perhaps fearing that Ifunanya may die in her house, Zazi took her to a local chemist for treatment.
“The patent medicine dealer, on seeing the wounds, advised the woman to take her to a hospital, but the suspect refused, thus prompting the dealer to raise alarm.
