A human rights lawyer, Barr. Maximus Ugwuoke, weekend, gave an insight into the trending case of a house-help, Nneoma, who was tortured by her ‘madam’ in Enugu.
Ever since the report emerged, there have been different versions, especially with regard to the role played by the police and other parties involved.
Speaking during a press briefing, Ugwuoke, who lodged the complaint that led to the rescue of the girl, gave a blow-by-blow account of the true story.
He debunked the allegation of police recklessness in the case, and rather called for reward of the police officers over the roles they played.
Ugwuoke said that the social media report that the police just dumped the girl in the hospital without being treated was not the true picture of the situation. He said it was the police that took the child to the hospital in the first place and that the police provided the money for the blood transfusion administered on her.
