Juliet Ozoarinze, a pregnant housewife, is in the police net for allegedly torturing a 10-year-old girl, Blessing, in Ijesha, Surulere, Lagos State.

According to a report by Punchng, the mother of four was also accused of assaulting the victim since she started living with the (Juliet’s) family in July 2017.

She was alleged to have used different objects on her over allegations of being tardy in running errands, not being prompt in answering summons and practicing witchcraft.

The suspect’s husband, Kenneth, was reported to have returned Blessing to her aunt, Vivian, on Tuesday, October 17, after the wife allegedly used a knife to cut the 10-year-old in the hand for allegedly stealing and eating the food meant for her children.

Vivian, who gave the couple the child because Kenneth was a family friend, revealed that Kenneth said he was returning the child because of the injury. She said, “Blessing’s mother lives in Abuja and she has four children, including her. 

.

.

She had been saddled with the care of all the four girls. We thought the couple could assist with Blessing’s education in exchange for helping them with house chores. The man suddenly brought the girl back to our house.

The woman used a knife to cut her in the hand and the man said he was not happy with the wife. After he left, I saw that she could barely sit and I asked her to remove her clothes. 

.

.

I was alarmed at the extent of her injuries and she told me that Juliet had been torturing her since she started living with them.” After after several attempts to convince Kenneth to to pay for the girl’s treatment, she reported the case at the Lagos State Office of the Public Defender.
