“It was not long after the matter was reported in the police station that the madam appeared, claiming the housemaid was abducted,” a source told the media house.
The 12-year old girl identified as Precious Nwali is a house help who alleged to have stolen her mistress’ N26,000 at Nzekwe Street, near Kwata meat market in Awka, Anambra state.
The victim, from Ebonyi state, was allegedly stripped naked and pepper applied on her private part by the mistress, who also sent her out from the house around 10.30pm.

The Police spokesperson, Haruna Mohammed who confirmed the arrest, said the suspect denied applying pepper in the victim’s private part.

Mohammed, however, said investigation has commenced on the matter.
