A yet-to-be-identified woman has been arrested after she beat her maid to death and then dumped the body in a bush in Anambra state.
She was arrested by the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP), Anambra State Command on Wednesday.
The woman who confessed to the crime took NAPTIP officials to the bush where she buried the child.
Speaking in Igbo, she said: “I beat her and she started convulsing so I took her to King’s hospital. Getting there, she died, so I threw her body here.”
In a video shared online, the child’s body was already decomposing.
However, the woman will be charged in court.
