Imo police arrest woman suspected for child slavery

The police in Imo State have confirmed the arrest of a 26-year-old woman, Victoria Nwosu, for allegedly abusing and enslaving her three stepchildren.

A video clip had gone viral on the Internet showing the three minors being chained and made to undergo mental and physical torture.

A concerned resident, who made the video, called on Nigerians to come to the rescue of the children.

Subsequently, the state chapter of the International Federation of Women Lawyers swung into action, which led to the arrest of the woman and her husband.

Confirming the arrest of the couple, the police spokesperson in the state, Micheal Abattam, said the children had been rescued and assured that the couple will be charged to court at the end of investigation.
