House helps are suffering in many homes but who will speak up for them, Maid abuse is well known but poorly handled. This is an important issue in Nigeria.
They hardly eat the same food the family eats. They are given leftovers to munch on. They are given rags to wear. We should all do better. There are child laws in Nigeria but like most laws here no one enforces them. The worst of it all, they are inflicted with physical injuries which sometimes are permanent.
An Imo lady, phyl Chime who live at No. 452 No. 452 Aladinma Housing Estate, Owerri, has inflicted pain on her maid when pour hot oil on the victim.
Phyl Chime scalded her maid’s body with hot oil for eating plantain she was asked to fry. And still walking free according to reports.
