The wife of a top police officer has been implicated in a domestic abuse mess involving a young girl who was left in her care.
According to reports, a young girl identified as Esther, became the victim of domestic abuse after the wife of a police officer maltreated her.
Esther who was taken to the Kuje general hospital in Abuja, because of the injuries she suffered, was living with the woman who she referred to as 'mother'. She had injuries that look hot water or oil was poured on her chest and hands.
A social media user identified as Hammid Bakare, shared the story, accusing the woman of trying to hide the issue at hand with her husband's position.
"This is Esther picture below; a victim of serious child abuse brought into Kuje General hospital yesterday. According her, somebody she knows as mother and calls mother did this to her.
Why she needs your help to spread this news so that the appropriate authority can save her is that they are trying to cover up her case. And that she may not really belong to this woman. The woman that did this to Esther is married to a high ranking police officer and they are trying to use position to cover up evil.
Help Esther and call Kuje General hospital medical director Dr. Egbi tell him to do the right thing and hand the case over to police. Bombard our agile police with calls to please work for helpless Esther."
