Anambra landlord bathes 2-year old with hot water for being too wise

A man identified as Uche Chukwu has been arrested for pouring hot water on a two year old baby in Umueji Ufuma in Orumba North Local Government area of Anambra state.

The suspect is said to be the landlord to the victim’s parents.

According to the parents, Mr Augustine and Mrs Chinenye Obi, the landlord’s action came to them as suprise as they had enjoyed cordial relationship with him for the three months they had lived in the apartment. 

They lamented that apart from abuse their child, the suspect went ahead to evict them from his house for confronting him over his actions.

Obi said, “We have never had any issues with the landlord. Infact, he usually plays with our child. That was why didn’t suspect any foul play when he took the baby for few days in his apartment. 

“It was on the third day the incident happened that we started asking him what our baby did. He told us that the boy is too wise and stubborn for his age and needs iron hand to make him calm down.

“After carring out his devilish act, he evicted us from his house for challenging him. This is an apartment we moved into just three months ago.”

“The suspect has been arrested and the case transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Awka, from where he will be charged to court,” she added.
