Mrs Amaka Otolehi who slammed her maid to the ground and tortured her in a viral video has been remanded in Enugu state.
Chief Magistrate J. I. Agu of the Enugu East Magistratrial District on Tuesday remanded the 32-year-old in Enugu Correctional Centre.
Amaka Otolehi was caught on a viral video slamming her young domestic help to the ground, and subsequently arraigned by the Enugu State Police Command alongside Jonathan Geowam, an uncle of the domestic help, Peace Geowam, and who gave her out as maid.
When the five counts bordering on attempted murder was read to the accused person, Agu said he had no jurisdiction to entertain the case.
He consequently remanded the accused persons in Enugu Custodial Centre (prison) and adjourned to January 15, 2020, for report while the case file would be transmitted to the Attorney General of the state’s office for legal advice.
Meanwhile, the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmad Adurrahman said the command had invited the parents of the maid. He said;
“They will come down and tell us why they divorced this girl from them; as for the uncle, he has no satisfactory answer, so we are suspecting fowl play.
“This is typical example of Child Abuse, child labour, torture and man’s inhumanity to man.”
