Lagos State Commissioner of Police, CP Imohimi Edgal, on Wednesday, led a team of policemen to liberate a 13-year-old Nkechi Oseh, at No. 30 Adeniran Ajao Estate Anthony.
According to reports, Nkechi’s employer, one Miss. Betty Ifeoma, a staff of NNPC Lagos state office, was in the habit of locking her up for weeks anytime she is traveling within or out of the country leaving her with only two (2) packets of cabin biscuit.
It was observed that Nkechi had been subjected to series of domestic attacks as scars were seen all over her body. She told the commissioner of police that she has been locked up at four different times since her uncle brought her from Igboju in Delta state.
In her words, the frail-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.”
During the rescue operation, an empty packet of biscuits and a container of eaten food which was passed through the burglary proof for Nkechi to eat was discovered on the floor.
Nkechi is currently under the care of the child protection unit of the ministry of youth and social development Lagos state. The commissioner of police has vowed to get to the bottom of the matter.
