A Nigerian woman identified as Agatha Egodi Philip-Iboko and her husband has been arrested for maltreating their house-help.

Mrs Agatha, a serving corp member and mother-of-one, was arrested alongside her husband Philip Iboko for allegedly torturing and chaining their eight-year-old househelp, Osinakachukwu.

This was after a photo of the househelp lying in the open, under the sun, her legs and hands chained together, went viral on the internet after a neighbour of the couple posted the photo online.
