Corps Member and her husband arrested for dehumanising their househelp over N10 Sweet

A 26-year-old corps member and her husband, have been accused of maltreating their help and subjecting her to dehumanizing conditions.

Agatha Egodi Philip-Iboko, a mother-of-one, was arrested alongside her husband Philip Iboko for allegedly torturing their eight-year-old house-help, Osinakachukwu.

The couple were arrested days after a photo of the house-help lying in the open, under the sun, with her legs and hands chained together, went viral after a neighbour of the couple posted the photo online.

The neighbour stated that the young help was subjected to child abuse because she ate part of the N10 sweet they bought for their two-year-old daughter. It angered Nigerians and they called for the arrest of the child’s guardians.

 

Meanwhile, prior to this incident, Agatha, a serving corps member with the ministry of Agriculture, Ebonyi State, had put up photos of her help and praised her for her “undying goodwill towards others” and for being a great caretaker for her daughter Doris. So what changed?
