Nigerian activist and Facebook user, Olu Bunmi has shared photos of a little girl who was enslaved by her madam and found working till 4a.m while her madam’s kids slept.
According to her we are all shouting ‘Libya , Libya’, while we enslave others in Nigeria too, Here’s what she wrote;
“GOOD MORNING ALL!!!!
I am sooo happy today! A few days ago, I got an inbox about a child slave in Nigeria. So, all of us shouting LIBYA!!LIBYA!!, we enslave others too, here in Nigeria.
The evil ‘Madam’ of this lil girl makes her work from 4am till midnight. With serious beating. Everyone in the neighbourhood is tayad of the child’s constant crying. The child would scream through the night from the beating during the night even when it was supposed to be her sleeping time.
Madam has children of her own o. Children even older than this lil girl but no. It is the lil girl that washed clothes… fetched water… while Madam’s children did nought.
So, a neighbour could not take it anymore. She sent me an inbox and I asked my contact at the OPD (I WILL NOT NAME HER AS SHE IS A VERY PRIVATE PERSON AND HAS ASKED NOT TO BE NAMED PUBLICLY), she swung into action and got her office involved.
I am so pleased to say that the lil girl has been rescued and the Madam has been charged for the offence. I can’t remember what the offence is now.
Thank you so very much my OPD contact. You never let me down.
I was sent the lil one’s before and after pictures by the neighbour. I wish you could see her face in the two pictures. She looked miserable in the ‘before’ picture and joyful in the ‘after’ picture.
IF YOU KNOW OF ANY CHILD BEING ABUSED IN ANYWAY – PHYSICALLY, SEXUALLY… IN LAGOS STATE, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!
