Why I Locked Up Little Precious, Lady Explains
Remember the story of 11-year-old Precious Nwafor who was locked up in a poorly ventilated apartment without food?
Bounce News promised to bring you updates and the news is that the lady who unlawfully imprisoned her has been nabbed.
The woman gave her name as Nkechinyere Nwajagu, and she is a banker from Ajali in Orumba LGA of Anambra state but residing at No.12 Baderin street, Mafoluku Oshodi.
She reported to the police on Thursday night at Makinde Police Station Oshodi from where she was taken to the Human Rights Section of Lagos State Command Ikeja.
According to the suspect, it was her elder sister that brought the girl from the village and left her in her care when she travelled for Christmas vacation. With no one to leave her with, she had no choice than to lock her in anytime she goes to work until she returns at night, she explained.
The said Miss Nwajagu’s apartment was forced open on the instruction of the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State Command, CP Edgal Imohimi, in order to rescue the little girl.
And the CP vowed that "the jail awaits anyone who abuses the right of a child, women and the vulnerable in Lagos state".
The implication of this statement is that Miss Nkechinyere Nwajagu has already been charged to court.
She was taken to court on Friday January 5 by the Human Rights Section of the Lagos State Command led by CSP Kemi Adedeji (Mrs).
