The Lagos State Commissioner of Police Ag. CP Imohimi Edgal has rescued a 13-yrs teenage girl who was locked indoor by her boss while traveling out of the country.
13-year-old Nkechi Oseh, was locked indoors by her Madam, Ms Betty Ifeoma, a staff of NNPC Lagos state office at their residence at No. 30 Adeniran Ajao Estate Anthony, Lagos and traveled out of the country leaving the poor girl with only two (2) packets of cabin biscuit.
Nkechi, an orphan who domestic attack turned scars were spotted on her body, said anytime her boss travels and locks her in, she resorts to drinking water from the toilet to quench thirst. According to her, she has been locked up at four different times since her uncle brought her from Igboju in Delta state.
While recounting her ordeal, the pale and malnourished-looking Nkechi said;
“I have been locked up for two weeks, one-week, three-weeks when she traveled to London and since she traveled on Saturday I have been crying before God helped me today”
While rescuing Nkechi who is currently under the care of the child protection unit of the Ministry of Youth and Social Development Lagos State, empty packet of biscuits and a container of eaten food which was passed through the burglary proof for her to eat was discovered on the floor.
The Commissioner of Police, Imohimi Edgal, has vowed to get to the bottom of the matter.
