A 26-year-old corps member and her husband have been arrested after they allegedly chained their househelp for licking their daughter’s N10 sweet.
The woman identified as Agatha Egodi Philip-Iboko, a mother-of-one, was apprehended alongside her husband Philip Iboko for allegedly torturing the househelp identified as Osinakachukwu.
A neighbor to the couple had spotted Osinakachukwu lying under the sun with her hands and legs tied with iron chains. She then raised an alarm on social media, leading to the arrest of the couple.
Prior to this incident, Agatha, who is serving with the ministry of Agriculture, Ebonyi State, had put up photos of her househelp and praised her for her “undying goodwill towards others” and for being a great caretaker for her daughter Doris.
