The Enugu State Magistrate Court on Monday remanded a couple, Mr Jude Ozougwu and Ifeoma in prison for allegedly brutalising a 10-year-old Nneoma Nnadi with pressing iron and nails.
The couple was arraigned before the Chief Magistrate Agu of Enugu North Court 1 sitting in the Enugu North Magisterial District by the state police command on three-count charge bothering on attempted murder.
The charge marked No MEN/298c/2020 is between the Commissioner of Police vis Mr Jude Ozougwu ‘m’ age 40 years and Ifeoma Ozougwu ‘f’ age 24 years.
This couple had inflicted several injuries on the 10-year old girl, for sleeping while baby sitting their child at about 12 midnight. Apparently, she was sleeping because it was late in the night, also due to exhaustion from her restless day.
It was gathered, that the baby fell off Nneoma’s hand, to the floor without incuring any injuries. The couple however, pounced on her without mercy.
