The Adara Development Association (ADA) has said that its attention has been drawn to the pathetic case of a 24-year old, Janet Audu, an Adara girl that has been hospitalized as a result of serious injuries inflicted on her in the family where she is serving as a house help.
A statement signed by the National President, Adara Development Association, Awemi Dio Maisamari, made available to our correspondent on Friday July 9, 2021, said that although some powerful people want the matter buried, they will push for her to get Justice.
“The association is therefore thanking the good spirited individuals who brought this case to the attention of all concerned individuals and relevant authorities.
“Though we have heard that some powerful people are mounting pressure for this dehumanising incident to be swept under the carpet, but we wish to assure all that no stone will be left unturned to get justice for the poor girl,” it said.
The group said that they can’t help but wonder why a supposedly sane and responsible family or woman can be so vicious to a child.
“We are therefore, demanding that all persons responsible for this horrific act be prosecuted to serve as a deterrent to other wicked individuals,” it added.
While sympathizing with her and wishing her quick healing, they are calling on all members of the Adara community to put a stop to the shameful practice of giving out their wards to unknown predator families.
“Furthermore, the Association will henceforth adopt a stronger measure of deterring all those involved in releasing our children to strangers,” it concluded.
