The woman who was arrested after a video showing the moment she slammed her young maid to the ground in Enugu state, pleads that she did it out of anger.
The woman identified as Amaka Otolehi from Ngor-Okpala, was arrested on Tuesday, December 24, by the Nigeria Police Force, Enugu State Command after a video showing the moment she slammed her little maid on the ground went viral.
Amaka and her husband, Nkemakolam Otolehi were arrested for the abuse of Goewam Peace, a young girl from Jos. The child’s uncle, Jonathan Goewam, who gave her away to the Otolehi family to live with them, was also arrested.
Amaka while speaking with newsmen in tears blamed the devil for her actions says she acted out of anger and had never maltreated Peace prior to slamming her to the ground. She added that kids love her and her action towards Peace in that viral video is not in her character.
“I don’t know what came over me. I don’t treat her in such manner before. You can enquire from her school, you can ask our neighbours.
“This is not how we have been living, I’m a lover of children, all come to my house. Anger put me into this, I love Peace, we have been living together for two years, this is just something that went out of the ordinary.”
