A lot of people don't know what CHILD LABOUR is all about

 so I got this mail from anonymous which reads....

Hello Nanji Please make me anonymous, 

My parents sent me to Imo state to stay with my uncle and his wife when I was five (5) years old, to sponsor my education,  they have  2 children, one was three and one was six year old.

So they enrolled me in a school,  I started doing all the chores, I wash my cousins clothes, clean the house and when I didn't do it well I got beaten with an electric cable, but how can a 5 year clean the house properly?

Sometimes she left me without food in the afternoon because my school is closer to the house and she usually picks her children from work, so they came home together.

She once plugged an electric iron and used it to burn my back and buttocks, then starved me for eating..... and we discussed this issue with Barr. Shalom Chris Nson and Mrs. Caroline Onuwazobe
