  1. Too bad indeed. Actually i disagree with those who blame the girl parents. Is not negligence,anybody even u can do what they did. U can’t employ a house help at d same time u take ur children to ur work place just be/cos u want to ensure their safety. What d essence of employin a househelp,is it not to take care of ur home n children? We just need to be careful of d kind of help we seek. Ds thing is common with d Akwa Ibom househelp. Always wn i read stories like ds,d victim is always bearin Akwa Ibom name. Seek d Face of God in everything .
