A nursing murder who allegedly beat up her step daughter has been arrested by the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) in Enugu.
The victim reportedly sustained serious injuries on her head and other parts of her body.
A Twitter user by the name Hybrid shared a video of the injured little girl.
The user also alleged that the beating is a normal occurrence and when the father of the child tries to stop his wife, she also beats him.
A video of the husband with injuries on his body was also shared online.
The user wrote, “Saw this little girl last night around Maryland Enugu with bruises all over her body & a cut to the head.
“She said the stepmother whipped her with electric wire bcos she was sent to buy energy unit of 4015 & she bought 4500 returning N500 instead of 985
“I couldn’t stop myself from ignoring her when I heard she’s abused on daily basis by her stepmother so I decided to walk her home.
“We got to their house & I met her father, he started telling me how the wife is abusing the daughter and each time he try to defend her wife doesn’t hesitate to hit him as well.
Problem is this poor innocent little girl going through this traumatic experience.”
After the videos were shared online, NAPTIP swung into action and arrested the nursing mother.
