Imo court remands man for burning maid’s buttocks

A guardian, Uzoma Egemba, has been remanded at the Owerri Correctional Centre for allegedly scalding the buttocks and body of his 12-year-old maid, Chimkamso Ekeocha, for riding his children’s bicycle.

Egemba was remanded on Wednesday by P.C Nnoromole of Owerri Magistrate’s Court after he was arraigned by the police in the state.

The jurist, who said that she lacked the power to hear the matter, remanded the accused and adjourned till July 20 to hear the report by the Department of Public Prosecutions.

Though counsel to the accused, K. U Alisigwe, had argued that the magistrate had the constitutional power to entertain the matter, the jurist insisted that she lacked the jurisdiction to entertain the matter.

While Alisigwe pressed on, the magistrate reminded him that she was not recording him.

Counsel to the police, Ogechi who brought out a remand notice, agreed with the magistrate that she lacked the jurisdiction to entertain the matter.
