She’s a house help. Her master dropped her from the balcony of the 2nd floor of a 2 storey building Location is 204 Niger opposite Newday dast food Aba Please let’s make this trend and get her justice
Some reactions read;
“What’s with people treating “housemaids” inhumanly? Why do they always believe they are less as a human being than their bosses are? God Africans. In the first place, this is even a crime because it’s child labour and most likely unpaid. Then attempted murder? Of a child?”
“Damn that’s attempted murder, please get the police and human rights organisations involved, the psycho has to face justice for this evil act.”
“I’m in Scotland UK and just seen this tweet Looks like slavery never ended. That poor child needs help @NigeriaGov @PoliceNG_CRU @NigeriaNewsdesk”
“Former slaves becoming slave lords. Their fight for freedom was never about hatred for inhuman treatment, it was a quest to become one themselves. I don’t know why this keeps happening in the East. May God help everyone to raise their kids by their self”
