Wicked Lagos Couple Land in Hot Soup After Torturing Child with Hot Iron (Photos)

A guardian and his wife who allegedly tortured a 10-year-old girl with a hot iron, have landed themselves in hot soup after being apprehended by security operatives. 
The victim
 
The operatives of the Nigerian Police Force from the Ilupeju division in Lagos, have been arrested a man identified as ThankGod Madubuchi, and his wife, Juliet, for allegedly torturing a 10-year-old girl, Chinansa, with a hot iron.
 
According to a report by Punch Metro, Chinansa was ThankGod’s niece and she had been living with his family at their house on Anjorin Street, Mushin, Lagos State, for some time.
 
It was gathered that ThankGod and his wife were alleged to have always assaulted the victim over minor offences, as appeals from neighbours fell on deaf ears.
 
Matter came to a head on Tuesday, September 5, when the couple used a hot iron to torture the victim. She was reportedly accused of licking powdered chocolate beverage (tea) without permission.
 
The couple were said to have locked her up in the house, which drew the attention of residents who alerted officials of the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team.
 
While speaking to a correspondent an official of the agency disclosed that neighbours attested to the regular abuse of Chinansa.
 
He said, “The abuse had been going on for a long time. We were informed that in the past, the man’s wife used razor blades to cut her in different parts of the body because she mistakenly tore her (Juliet) clothes. The neighbours didn’t raise the alarm that time because they thought the couple would change until the one that happened on that Tuesday.

“The girl was accused of licking powdered beverage without permission and the man used a hot iron to torture her. He then locked her up in the house without taking her to a hospital. Residents, who feared for the girl’s life, alerted the DSVRT.”
 
It was learnt that policemen from the Ilupeju division arrested the couple as two officials of the DSVRT and an officer of the Child Protection Unit rescued the victim from the house.
 
The couple were arraigned  before a family court at the Ogba Chief Magistrate’s Court on counts bordering on child abuse. They pleaded not guilty to the charges, and were granted bail by the Chief Magistrate, T. Akanbi.
 
While Juliet was granted bail on self recognition because  she was nursing a  six-month-old baby, the husband was granted bail in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties each in like sum.
 
A DSVRT survivor advocate, Mrs. Tumininu Oni, appeared in court with the Investigating Police Officer, Inspector Roseline Ilekhue, who was represented by one Inspector James.
 
The case was adjourned till September 20, 2017.

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage. Atten-ding seminars and reading books on marriage are good, I told her; but where you can know and be pr-oud of living confidently in marriage is when you enter into the reality of marriage. This is w…
