The police in Lagos on Monday took into
custody, a 40-year-
old trader, Mrs.
Deborah Gabriel, who
brutalised her housemaid, eight-year-old Glory Ugbon, and then put pepper in the girl’s eyes and private part when the girl decided to steal a plate of rice when she was

Five months after Glory started living with the trader as her housemaid, the girl has been allegedly brutalised many times and there are so many marks all over her body.

Glory, who had been in the servitude of Deborah in Surulere,
Lagos since November 2015, said her elder sister simply took her to the woman at the
time during her visit
to Akwa Ibom State and said she would follow her to Lagos to be her housemaid.

“Madam said she would put me in school and my sister told me that she would treat me well.

The woman is not related to us. I work
at home all the time
but sometimes when
she is not happy with
me, she beats me till
I cannot walk” Glory

But on Sunday, April
10, the co-tenants of
Deborah decided to take action to prevent the woman from killing the girl when they noticed that she had taken the torture of the girl a notch higher.

The neighbours
alerted child rights activists, who promptly notified the police when the little girl would not stop screaming.

Glory, who was later
brought to the Aguda
Police Division, Surulere, Lagos along with Deborah, said on that particular day, she was simply eating at the
backyard of their
house, when her madam accused her
of stealing food.

Because of that, Deborah brutalised
the girl first.

“When she was tired
of beating me, she
forced my legs apart
and rubbed some pepper that she had
just ground in my eyes and my bum bum (private part),” she said.

When the pain became unbearable, neighbours raised the alarm when they learnt what the
woman did to the girl.

Glory, who was
sobbing as she was
brought to the police
station along with
her madam, explained that she was very hungry when Deborah
caught her eating and
became furious.

Glory’s case is one of
many similar incidents in which housemaids have been brutalised by
their bosses.

It is unclear under
what circumstances Glory was handed over to Deborah. She said she was in Primary 3 before she left her parents in their village.

The girl told our correspondent that
her mother and father were in the village in Akwa Ibom State.

“Since November that she brought me to Lagos,  she has not talked about any school for me,” Glory said.

On Monday after our
correspondent spoke
with the sobbing girl,
she had to be taken
to Mirabel Sexual Assault Referral Centre in Ikeja, Lagos for treatment because she would not stop complaining about the pepper, some of which had become lodged inside her.

When our correspondent spoke
with Deborah, the
woman was apologetic as she explained that
“something just
came over me” when
she tortured the girl.
“Please, help me. I am so sorry for what I did. I know it is wrong but I just could not control my anger. I promise to
take care of her and
give her adequate
treatment now. I am
so sorry for what I

When our correspondent spoke
with the woman’s
husband, Victor, he
said that he slept too
deeply that day that
he did not hear as his
wife brutalised the
girl and put pepper in
her private part.

He said, “My wife flogged the girl because she caught her eating in the backyard. I told the
girl too that she should not have eaten at the back of the house. I was the one who even
prepared the stew.

“I went to sleep later
and when I woke up
the following morning, I saw all the wounds on the girl’s body. That was when I also knew
that she had put
pepper in the girl’s private part.

 “I did not know that
she beat her so badly. I guess I slept too deeply and did not hear the girl’s screaming because of the drug I took that day. I would
have intervened.”

Saturday PUNCH
learnt that Deborah
was charged with
child abuse and assault against a minor at the Surulere Magistrate’s Court, Lagos on Tuesday.

She was remanded
at the Kirikiri Prison,
pending the perfection of her bail.
