Confirming the incident on Tuesday, May 30, 2023, the spokesperson for the command, SP Suleiman Nguroje, said the suspect had been taken into custody and would appear in court tomorrow (Wednesday) to face justice in line with extant laws.

“The police is hereby advising parents to be wary of giving out their children to others for keeps,” Nguroje added. 

While narrating her ordeal, little Angela said, “She fed me only once daily, so I was too weak to wash utensils on that ill-fated day. She used electric cable and strands of the moringa tree to whip me all over my body.”

Also, speaking on the matter, the mother of the victim, Elsey David, said, “I gave her my daughter some eight months ago to assist her with domestic work. It was on condition that she would in turn enroll the child in school but she didn’t.”
