Policeman’s Wife Batters 10 Year Old Niece Over N30 In Lagos

Mrs. Caroline Akanwa, a 38-year-old trader has been arrested for allegedly battering her 10 year old niece, Chioma Uneme. Mrs. Caroline who is the wife of a policeman and has two children of her own was arrested by the Area C Police Command, Lagos State.
It is gathered that she brought the 10-year-old from Okofia, Anambra State, to her home at Iponri Police Barracks to assist with house chores, as well as the management of Akanwa’s recharge cards business but was in the habit of always flogging Uneneme for every offence. The beatings were so intense that the victim had her back marred with scars and sores.

The incident leading to the arrest is said to have happened when the victim sold a recharge card of N1,000 for N970 and she was battered by her aunt before Uneme’s teacher at St. Paul Primary School, Iponri later noticed the scars and took her to a hospital for treatment.
The hospital management however insisted on a police extract before going ahead with the treatment which caused the school to write a petition to the Lagos State Office of the Public Defender on the matter.
In a statement by the suspect, she said she did not mean to inflict injuries on her niece, saying:

Chioma (Uneneme) is my niece. I brought her to Lagos last year and she has been staying with me. I never intended to inflict injuries on her. Some time ago, a customer came to buy a N1,000 recharge card. She sold it for N970 after the person said he did not have the balance. I spanked her for it.

The latest happened on June 7. My husband and I were not in the house. Somebody came and said my husband’s car was blocking his and he could not move out. She gave the person my husband’s car key and the man bashed my husband’s car while trying to move it. When I returned and saw what had happened, I beat her. Aside these, she steals from me. I beat her like I beat my children.”
