Lagos Dream Turns Nightmare For Little Precious From Anambra
Precious Nwafor, aged 11, was brought all the way from Umunze in Orumba LGA of Anambra state with a promise of better life in Lagos.
But what she has experienced since coming to her ‘promise land’ has been the opposite of good life.
Her case would never have been known if not for neighbours who alerted the Lagos state Commissioner of Police since he assured Lagosians that he would not ignore any matter involving the girl child, women and the vulnerable.
Mr Imohimi Edgal visited No.12 Baderin street, Mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos, on Thursday, January 4 to rescue the 11-year-old child who had been locked up in a poorly ventilated apartment without food.
At the scene, CP Imohimi, after assuring the child that he had come to help her, ordered that the iron burglary proof barricading the entrance to the living room be cut open by a welder.
In an emotion laden voice, he addressed the media and the crowd that gathered, urging everybody to be their brother's keeper and to report any wrong observed in their vicinity to the police.
Then he handed down this warning: "The jail awaits anyone who abuses the right of a child, women and the vulnerable in Lagos state."
The CP handed over little Precious to the social welfare department of the Lagos state government and directed the Divisional Police Officer to arrest the guardian of the child for prosecution.
Bounce News will stay on this case and give you updates as it progresses.
Clearly, the police need to make scapegoats of some Lagos ogas and madams.
