A Nigerian couple, Blessing and her husband, were arrested in Anambra state after being accused of brutalizing their 9-year-old house help, Idinma with a pestle and red-hot knife.
Videos showing Idinma with a swollen face and various body injuries surfaced online on May 12th, prompting outrage on social media.
The couple reportedly inflicted the injuries on Idinma, who lives with them and assists in caring for their baby, after she accidentally dropped one of their newborn twins while holding them.
According to reports, Idinma was also denied access to education by her benefactors. She is currently receiving medical attention for her injuries in a hospital.
A video of the nursing mother and her husband being interrogated by community members has gone viral.
