“The Success Story of Our Rescue of An Abused 10 Year Old Child. A few days ago I received information that this girl was trafficked and abused by her madam’s husband. He beat and severely injured her because she wet her bed.
She is only 10 years old. The challenge was in identifying the incident location and the parties involved in the abuse.
For the last few days I have been working with the fantastic #NPF on this issue. I am glad to say that through my work with the police the location was established, the abusive man identified and he is now in police custody.
Pure Evil. Sometimes sharing a video such as this is not enough. You have to act.
We scream domestic violence but see what a woman and her husband can do to a ten year old child because she peed on the bed.
This is not their child. She was trafficked from Enugu State to Abuja as a house slave. At ten years of age. By a Christian family.
I have made a formal complaint and the Nigeria Police Force are handling the case. They are searching for this child.
If you know of her whereabouts let me know. The husband and wife who did this are right now on the run, but they will be caught.
Name of girl child: Onyebube
State of Origin: Enugu State
Father of girl child: Emma
Age of girl child: 10 years old
