Yesterday, there was a trending report about the Police rescuing a 3-year-old girl, Sarah, being abused by her parents in Nnewi, Anambra state. According to a Sam Itauma, he spoke to the Anambra State Police Commissioner, Mr. Sam Okaula, who supposedly said the girl, who is malnourished and skinny from starvation, has been rescued and her parents arrested. Itauma claimed that the girl was said to have mental challenges but is undergoing intense medical treatment.
Speaking exclusively to LIB, our source revealed that the parents of the abused girl were never arrested. Although they have since stopped beating the child, the only result of any medical care she received was a tiny bandage on her head. Our source who has come in contact with the child believes that she is quite a sound child and does not have any mentalk issue as claimed. She is just traumatized from living in so much fear.
Any NGO or appropriate government agency that wants to intervene in this case of abuse can investigate further at NYSC NCCF family house at Obiagu, Amichi, Nnewi, Anambra state.
