Mrs Roseline Uzoamaka has been arrested by the FCT Police Command after she inflicted a cruel and unusual punishment on a 14 year old relative, Sarah due to her bedwetting.

According to Laila

Uzoamaka allegedly forced the teenager to sit on a burning electric cooker until the girl sustained severe burns in her private parts as a punishment for urinating on the bed. The incident occurred last Saturday, August 23, at the family’s residence in Gwarimpa, Abuja. Sarah, it was gathered, was
Uzoamaka’s sister-in-law, being a younger sister to her husband. On the fateful day, Roseline Uzoamaka had scolded Sarah for continuously bedwetting, and asked her to sit on the burning stove until her genitals were cooked by the heat.

It was gathered that Uzoamaka confessed in her statement to the police that she did this because some friends had advised her that the way to make her bedwetting sister-in-law recover from the problem was to make her sit on a hot stove. After the girl’s privates were affected by the heat, she was said to have been rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment the same day. The girl is still recuperating in the hospital.

The Abuja Police Command Public Relations Officer, Altine Daniel, confirmed the arrest to Punch on the telephone.Adding that due to the severity of the case, the case had been transferred to the FCT Criminal Investigation Department.
She said:

“Yes, the woman has been arrested. She told the police that the reason she did that was because the girl was bedwetting. She said it was some of her friends who advised her to try that as a solution. The girl is related to her husband. She is not her housemaid. The case has been transferred from the division to the Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation.”
