A 33-year-old housewife, Onyinye Maduka, who allegedly poured hot rice on her house keeper’s body, was, yesterday, charged before an Ikeja chief magistrate’s court in Lagos.

The accused, who resides at 9, Ayetoro Street, Bariga, Lagos, is facing a two-count charge bordering on assault.

The prosecutor, Inspector Clifford Ogu, told the court that the offences were committed on February 12 at the residence of the accused. Ogu said that Maduka accused her 12-year-old house keeper, a girl, of stealing. “The accused poured boiling rice on the victim’s body, causing severe injuries,” he said.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty. Chief Magistrate Taiwo Akanni admitted the accused to N50,000 bail with one surety in like sum and adjourned the case to March 15.
