The police command in Plateau State, on Thursday in Jos, confirmed the arrest and detention of a female suspect, for allegedly torturing and killing her maid, a minor identified as Margaret Joshua.

The suspect, a microbiologist in one of the research institutes in Vom, and a resident of K-Vom, Jos South Local Government Area, was said to have allegedly immersed the minor in hot water until her buttocks were severely burnt.

The suspect, a mother of two, had made a promise to enrol the victim in school, but did not do so, rather, indulged in daily beating of the girl until it resulted in her death.

It was further gathered that after the recent beating, the little girl was forced to sit in a container filled with hot water which severely burnt her buttocks and private parts.

Grace Pam, Plateau State coordinator of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) reported that:

“Our attention was called about the situation on Monday, by a staff of the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH), who said that an 11-year-old girl had been seriously beaten up and injured by her guardian.

“On getting to the hospital we saw several old and new scars, and injuries on her entire body. We were told that she was taken to Mandela hospital in K-Vom, but was referred to JUTH due to the severity of her wounds.

“When we met the suspect at the police station where she was initially detained, she claimed that the girl used to masturbate, and so she was beating her to serve as punishment to make her stop.

“She claimed she did not know what used to come over her each time she beat the girl because she quickly regrets it after the act.

“The suspect also claimed that the deceased fell into hot water after which she ran out of the house and did not return for almost 24 hours later.

Investigation revealed that Ms Joshua, who hails from Kebbi State, and fleeing from insecurity in her community, was brought into Jos by a supposed helper, but took her to serve as a maid in the suspect’s home.
