A woman identified as Tricia Oterneghoro, has been arrested for pouring hot soup on her 13 year old daughter, Joyce Emmanuel for sleeping in a neighbour’s house.
Narrating what led to the assault, the young girl said that when she wanted to go have her bath the previous night, her mom warned her not to go but she insisted. This made her mother lock the door leaving her outside in the cold.
When she realized her mum wouldn’t open the door for her, she decided to go sleep in their neighbour’s house. In the morning, her mother stormed into the neighbour’s room with a pot of hot soup and poured it on her.
Meanwhile, the girl’s mother defended her actions saying she had warned neighbours not to allow her daughter sleep in their house. So when she saw her the following morning she got angry and poured her the soup. She also claimed she didn’t know what came over her.
