A maid has been arrested after she was caught on camera dipping a 16-months-old baby’s hand into hot water.
The mother, Amy Low Mei Liang, took to her social media page to share a video of her maid she found where she was dipping her baby’s hand into hot water in Singapore. According to her, the Police has arrested the maid.
“I never thought this would happened to my daughter. Because of commitments in life, both my husband and I have to work, hence we decided to hire a maid, to look after our 16 month old girl. Little did we know, this was the beginning of our nightmare.
It happened on 14 Jan, 5.13pm. The maid was at home with both my daughters, 8year old and 16month old. At 5.20pm, my 8year old called my husband up and told him that my 16month old had suffered a burnt. We were shocked and rushed our girl to a nearby clinic, but the doctor thought it was too serious a burn wound hence referred us to hospital a&e instead.
Since the maid started working, we had told her that her priority is always to look after our girl and never to bring our girl into the kitchen. We can always take away dinner and there is no need for her to cook. I questioned the maid and she explained that it was an accident
She was carrying my girl while cooking in the kitchen and that my daughter ‘touched’ the pot by herself and the maid didn’t expect it to happen as it happened too quick. We chose to believe her even when the doctor at a&e had some doubts in the cause of the burnt wounds.
Next day morning, the maid packed all her belongings and insisted to go back to the agency. I kept assuring her that we never blamed her, as it was just an accident, she can still stay on and work for us. But she was very insistent hence I called the agency up
The agent told me that he would get someone to pick up the maid, and take it as a transfer case (to transfer the maid out to another family), so that the 6 months loan that I have paid for the maid could be returned to me. I chose to believe and listen to the agent.
I felt something was amissed and I decided to check the CCTV footage at home while waiting for the maid to be picked up. And what I saw was horrifying.
The maid, she did it on purpose! ??It was never an accident! She took my daughter’s hand and dipped her hand inside a boiling pot.
I was shaking throughout and made a police report immediately.
While waiting for the police, I notified the agent of what had happened. The agent started to be agitated and insisted that we should return the maid to agency and end it just like that.
Before the police arrived, I questioned the maid why did she do that to my daughter. She said she wants to go home, she said that her friends taught her to do it, so that she could go home.
And when I asked if the agent was also involved, she said yes – he said that I could go home if I do this! How horrifying! (The maid came to work for us for about a month and she did mention that she wants to go home 2 weeks ago, but all was settled after the agent met and spoke it her. Did the agent teach her to do that when they met?)
During this period, the agent kept threatening and harassing me. Accused me that I am a bad employer – that I abuse the maid hence the maid wanted to leave, which I never do.
The agent’s behavior had gone way over the boundaries hence I made another police report, as I was really frightened that the agent would do something to my family.
But the outcome was disappointing, the police mentioned that unless the agent harassed us again, else they won’t be taking any further action.
I always thought that the police is for the people, this is Singapore, this is supposed to be one of the safest countries in the world, but no, the police can’t do much unless something fatal happened?
I chose to believe in the maid, and she hurt my daughter.
I chose to believe in the agent, and he could be the one who is behind all these.
I chose to have faith in the law and the police force but all I get is to wait for something else to happen before they could really take any further action.
There is nothing I want more than justice for my daughter, is that too much?
I won’t be disclosing further information of the agency. But I plea that all of you to keep a close eye on your domestic helpers.”

Woman To Be Banished From Delta Community For Reporting Her Husband Who Allegedly Had Sex & Impregnated Their 14-Year-Old Daughter
Activist, Harrison Gwamnishu, has written an open letter to the Delta state government for immediate action to be taken as members of a community in the state hace concluded plans to barnish a young woman who reported her husband after he allegedly had sex, impregnated and procured an abortion for their 14 year old daughter, Chidinma.
According to Gwamnishu, the crime was committed sometime in 2010 and the suspect is still in prison. Read his open letter below:
OPEN LETTER TO:
1. GOVERNOR IFEANYI OKOWA
Executive Governor Delta State
2. HON. BARR. PETER MRAKPOR
Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice Delta State.
3. HIS ROYAL MAJESTY EMMANUEL EFEIZOMO II
Chairman Delta State Council of Traditional Rulers.
Mrs. Grace Eze’s husband raped their 14 years old daughter sometime ago and the said rape led to the said daughter’s pregnancy. The pregnancy was aborted at the instance of Mrs Eze’s husband in a bid to cover-up his iniquitous acts.
When Mrs. Grace Eze found out about the crime her husband had committed, especially in view of the sensitive nature as it involved the rape of a minor, it became imperative for detailed investigation, especially medical investigations, so as to ensure that the victim was free from any medical conditions; and indeed that the culprit faces the law for the embarrassment he had brought to his family and entire Deltans.
Flowing from the foregoing facts, Mrs. Grace Eze first reported the matter to husband relatives and Behind Bars Human Rights Foundation reported to the Police in fulfilment of our constitutional duty to report the suspected commission of crimes, and in a bid to secure professional guidance for a detailed medical investigation of her daughter’s health and emotional status.
We were extremely embarrassed and disappointed when we found out that some community leaders had summoned Mrs Grace Eze and gave her a list of items to compulsorily provide to “cleanse the land” because she reported her husband to the human rights and sought help for her daughter. The said list of items is herein annexed to this letter for your kind perusal.
Mrs. Grace Eze was further threatened that if she failed to comply with the directives of the said community leaders, she will be banished from the community and severely dealt with.
Worthy of note is the fact that the family of the person who committed the rape and orchestrated an abortion, has not been summoned to provide any items to “cleanse the land”. (The man still in Prison custody).
We see what is at play as a conscious effort to cover-up a crime and victimize Mrs. Grace Eze.
We are very aware of your influence and astute leadership in your and therefore urge you to intervene immediately in this case so as to salvage the image of this community and put a stop to the imminent threats Mrs Grace Eze has received from her community leaders.
We have elected not to petition the community leaders to the National Human Rights Commission, as well as proceed to court in a bid to safeguard and defend the fundamental rights of Mrs Grace Eze because we are confident that you will intervene and see that justice is done. No citizen of our country should be punished for exercising her constitutional or legal rights.
Kindly accept the expression of our esteemed regards as we look forward to hearing from you.

Man Arrested For Attempting To Kill His Mother In Nasarawa
The Nasarawa Command of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), has arrested a 26-year-old man for attempting to kill his biological mother in Lafia, the state’s capital.
Parading the suspect identified as Kamaldin Abu Sabo before newsmen, the State’s NSCDC commandant, Mahmud Gidado Fari said he threatened to kill his mother on numerous occassions.
Fari added: “That is why we have arrested him and would soon charge him to court. It is wrong for anybody to say that he would kill another person. What makes this case different is that she is his biological mother”
The suspect who denied the allegation against him, accused him elder brother of reporting him to the agency.
Kamaldin said: “I am living on Shendam Road in Lafia. I dropped out from Government College Keffi. I am a Tailor and did not attempt to kill my biological mother. And I did not agree with the statement of the NSCDC that my mother reported me; it was my elder brother who reported me to the NSCDC.
“I had the tattoo because of the fancy I have for it, but I am not a cultist.”
He however couldn’t explain why he had many scars on his face and body.
