Boy left scalded by his boss trying to wake him up with a hot water, reunites with his mom
Last year, One Ms. Uduak Monday, 29, was arrested for allegedly pouring boiled water on Daniel Okon Nse’s face, at about 5:30AM on Thursday, 24th November, 2016, in an attempt to wake him up.
One Emmanuel Agan, who is a neighbour to the accused, noticed the grave injuries on Nse, and immediately reported to Basic Rights Counsel Initiative, a front line child rights organization in Calabar.
The organization immediately documented the case and effected Uduak’s arrest. Nse revealed that he is from Uruan in Akwa Ibom State and his dad is late, but his mother who is a trader (crayfish seller) gave him out to live as house boy to one Madam Ime.
The said Madam Ime is a food vendor and on the fateful day of the incident, he could not wake up on time to wash dishes, when Ime’s eldest daughter, Uduak, woke him up by pouring boiling water on his face. He has since gotten justice and reunited with his mom, thanks to Basic Rights Counsel Initiative.
