Nigerian parents jailed for 7 yrs in the UK following allegations of child abuse

For beating their six children with brooms, hoovers and wires and even giving their baby a morphine overdose after childbirth, Nigerian couple, Joseph and Gloria Musa (pictured above with their kids) have been jailed for seven years each in London, with the UK press calling them all sorts of names.

But the Nigerian married couple denied the allegations, claiming the children were victims of a racist witch-hunt. They were, however, found guilty of cruelty to a person under 16. The parents convicted of a decade long campaign of abuse against their six children were jailed for seven years each yesterday.


The Nigerian couple, which the paper said claimed their kids were possessed by evil spirits, were found guilty after Coronation Street star Michelle Collins gave evidence against them.

The parents argued that the children had been ‘brainwashed’ into making the allegations by the police, the London Borough of Haringey and Miss Collins who they said ‘wanted to steal’ them, UK’s Green Crown Court heard.

Jurors rejected the parents conspiracy theories. When they are released, they face deportation back to Nigeria – despite pleas from their legal team that they have been ‘punished enough’ by having their children taken into care.

As they left the court, the paper said the couple wailed: ‘We are innocent, this is a miscarriage of justice.’

The couple were accused of beating their children with brooms, hoovers and wires and even giving their baby a morphine overdose just days after her first birthday.

A report published in UK’s Daily Mail said five of the children were rescued after their eldest daughter threw a heart-wrenching SOS note out of a window.

The report said it was not until their one-year-old baby was given a morphine overdose over a year later that police reopened the case which led to their prosecution.

The paper said the plight of the children was so bad that Miss Collins, who met them at a church lunch, took them to the cinema ‘because she felt sorry for them’.

The Miss Collins gave evidence as a prosecution witness during the trial of the parents, both 40, who could not be named to protect their six children.

Sentencing them to seven years behind bars each, Judge James Patrick described it as ‘shocking mistreatment’ that they had tried to cover up with a ‘web of deception’.

Judge Patrick said: “No-one who sat through this trial could help but be moved by the fact that these intelligent, charming, fun, lovable children continue to love you despite what you put them through.

“You alleged a conspiracy involving a well-known actress, who had done nothing but show your family generosity and kindness, a member of a housing charity, social workers and foster carers.

“Those who had taken the trouble to support you were repeatedly accused of dishonesty, lying, and conspiracy to rob you of your children when the reality was that both of you were lying – in fact they ware simply seeking to give your children stability.”

But the parents claimed they were victims of a conspiracy – and even alleged Miss Collins was involved in a witch hunt against them and wanted to ‘steal’ their children.

One of the youngsters, a baby at the time, had been allowed to stay in the home by Haringey council, who were involved in other case called the Baby P and Victoria Climbie cases, despite the fact the five other children had to be rescued.

The abuse reportedly came to the attention of police in April 2010 when their nine-year-old wrote an SOS note and threw it out of her bedroom window.

The heart-breaking plea read: ‘My mum is the worst mum ever because she can’t cope with five of us, her broken hand and being pregnant. She always leaves me out so I always starve and I am forced to work.

‘If I don’t get enough house work done, I am beaten without mercy with the wooden end of a broom. I have scars all over me to prove it. I can’t stay here. I would like a new mum.’

It was found by a neighbour who called the police, and when officers attended the address they found the children living in messy conditions with ‘dirty’ and ‘dishevelled’ clothing.

Revealing scars the eldest said her mother had hit her with a cable, a broom, and a hoover and her father had dangled her by her feet down the stairwell of the house, tied her hands behind her back and her legs together ‘to get the devilish spirits out’, prosecutor Emma Smith said.

Her sister, who was seven at the time, had a stick shaped bruise of her thigh and after a few months in care, she drew a series of pictures showing her dad beating her and her being left home alone and including a speech bubble saying ‘I’m hungry.’

The children were left home alone for hours, sometimes days on end, with the elder kids forced to look after the others.

They had even been forced to lie to a charity and social services that they were living alone with their mother in one room and had no idea who their dad was so they could scam benefits.

Even during the trial the eldest feared she had torn her family apart with her ‘devastating cry from the heart in the form of a letter which she threw from the window’, the judge noted.

There was an investigation but no further action, and the five children remained in care until the parents once again came to police attention on 28 June last year, when they gave their baby an overdose.

‘But for the events of June 28 you would have gotten away with your crimes because of a merciful decision not to prosecute you’, Judge Patrick noted.

The couple’s sixth child, a baby girl, the report said, was also initially taken into care but then returned to her parents. They took her to St Thomas’s Hospital just days after her first birthday last year.

The paper went on to say that without treatment, the baby could have died but doctors managed to save the youngster, who it is believed was given morphine orally that morning.

Wicked parents. honestly some people do not deserve to have kids but God is not man.
if the kids are possessed why not take them to a church for deliverance rather than flog the living day lights out of them with brooms and what have u. and even giving a child morphine! thats the height. i think the reverse is the case here, the parents are possessed!

I wonder what the couple were thinking. They're are not anywhere nare naija, one would have thought having that many a kid and equally subjecting them to such torture is a routine we are used to.
Well, its so unfortunate that they end up like that. I just hope others would learn from their predicament.

thing with african parents is that they will kill their kids in the name of discipline...the Bible does say spare the rod and spoil the child..I disagree with the WESTERN world where parents cannot smack kids but then again i also disagree with africa where discipline amounts to battery and maltreatment..this is just INHUMANE!!
I love my parents but then again as much as i know my dad wanted the best for us, he will beat us when we don't sleep in the afternoon just beat us for stupid reasons and this made me determine to rebel...well for the word of God that later reached deep into my heart and made me want to live to please God i just chose to live away from home...I love my father...he goes extra miles to make us have the best but his method of discipline will make u forget he has done any good thing for u...I hated him..till this day when i read stories like this and i remember that sometimes I would want to run away from home, it brings tears to my eyes..poor helpless kids...

The German Immigrant says...whilst this(as reported) is an extreme case of child abuse. In a sense it brings to light the ever complex challenge of raising a child in the UK when u have African/Religious and Traditional morals to instill.

You see, the UK is un-officially a secular society and the only thing encouraged to enforce the concept of good and bad in a child is the state police and social system. Most of whom are non-religious,liberal and gay. It matters not what you tell your kids at home, it will be vehemently reset at school the next day.

Even native british parents are now begging for the right to some form of corporal punishment and spanking within reason. Anybody that has lived in the UK recently will concur that the youth are completely out of control.

My sincere condolences to all economic migrants who are faced with this challenge of raising kids in this environment. Its a dire and bleak prospect...says The German Immigrant

I feel for them sha! What were they thinking? If they wanted to give their children that kind of 'strict' upbringing they wld have come back to naija! It doesnt work there.
A lot of us mouthing in this blog were brought up under worse conditions and treatment but we still love our parents to tiny bits. Mot saying the extreme disciple and morphine giving is acceptable but we africans have a thing for strict parenting.

This is more than discipline. This is wickedness!

This picture we are seeing does not portray their parents in bad light as much as the conviction is trying to make us believe. The kids are looking great and happy. I don’t know why I am not convinced that they are that bad. Listening to my expatriate colleagues tell me how silly their kids are and how helpless they are in correcting them, I can’t help but pity these parents. It may have been out of love and not wickedness; they may not really be that cruel in dealing with their kid. My heart goes to them and wishes better life after prison.

Anonymous said...

Lets not forget our values and crucify the parents yet, they may have meant no harm, though they have made some mistakes without remembering the laws in UK regarding children. They wouldn't hate or hurt their own kids as much as its being portrayed. Children exaggerate a lot and kids don't usually understand the real implications of their actions. The children will definitely miss their parents when they realise the implications of putting their own parents in jail, the difference between parents and strangers and that they may never see their parents again. Certain things can't be compromised.

May god forgive all the Nigerians pretending to be clean here. Is that not how most of you maltreat your children because it is not against Nigerian law? Don't Nigerians use wires to flog children?

This couple had the kids so that the government will pay them more money via benefits. The law is changing to stop people from having too many kids on benefits.

White and Asian people are also having kids for money but they obey the law against child abuse in most cases, and not get into trouble.

The mother is very lazy but she may be disabled since the daughter said she had a broken hand.

It is sad because they may never see their kids again. When they are released from prison, the kids may decide not to go back to them but remain in a home.

I see this anger management and child abuse problem trending in the society. They can forget those children and need to be set as an example to other. the powerful abusing the powerless.....

An unfortunate situation really. those of you reading this blog i hope you straighten up. this also includes all children in your care.

Child abuse all in the name of discipline. My heart goes out to the children, cos they may find it difficult to overcome the pyschological effect and emotional this will put them through.
As for the parents, I hope they will be able to regain the love and trust of these children.

Anonymous said...

I personally smell a rat. Some conspiracy going on there. Or do you really think parents in their right state of mind will do all that? In Naija here, getting thrashed with cable wire and all sorts na normal thing. My mum did beat the crap outta me when I erred and I love her no less. So you fake ass Nigerians forming Britico where they still regard you as 2nd class or even 3rd class citizens can just get down from your high horses and STFU. My peeps disciplined me and I will be damned if I let my own kids rot. (And yet they wonder why younger generations always seem to have no sense of direction)

Anonymous said...

I totally agree. It wasnt even only beatings. Talk about unnecessary insults.
I remember parents would just diss you for no reason. Meaningless cruelty. And they would call it discipline.
Proffered solution:
Schools should encourage children to talk more.
To teachers, guidance counsellors.
But...then this is generational work. You know change can be so intractable in this part of the world.
Anyway sha, facebook dey. (which is a bit unfortunate) -
But then again what if, the parents really didnt deck those children like that - ?
A little discipline is good for kids...just dunno how far the parents really went....

this linda ikeji..if u dont no the full story dont write..i have been following this case for a long time..even went for the trial and the parents in my honest opinion, were innocent. i honestly feel that the council r trying to cover their asses cos there was no evidence. just testimonies of the police that failed to investigate the allegations. I was just shocked at how unprofessionally they handed this case.I was more than shocked to hear a guilty verdict by the jury..the police snatched this mother's child from her 48hrs after she gave birth n the next time she saw that child was in court..such wickedness will not go unpunished. pls ya'll pray that their appeal will be fruitful cos it is soo unfair to c the extent of wickedness that has befallen these people..very sad!

This is a lose-lose situation. Foster care is not the place for any child. So while it's great and wonderful that these children were taken away from abusive parents, their future is very much uncertain.

There aren't a lot of families/couples that will take in SIX CHILDREN together. Most likely the siblings will be split up. Some of them may be adopted while others are left behind.

It's such a pathetic situation. These children deserve our heartfelt prayers. I hope they will all be happy, productive and successful adults regardless of their rocky start in life.

There are better ways of scolding a child rather than beating them up with wires and all sorts...this is absurd..May God help these kids..YB

Davel said...

well it's interesting to see all this comments...
personally I think the Nigerian embassy should intervene..
After all, they are Nigerian citizens and our law permits a child to be chastised by their parents if they do wrong. personally I believe beating a child might save u alot of headaches wen the child out grows beating...
And Think it's save to say to the best of my knowledge it's only Americans and Europeans that have laws against chastising children...

The problem is some people are just plain wicked and over do it sometimes... while others just don't know wen to and not to...
But the Nigerian embassy should intervene, and see how they can atleast get the sentence reduced if to something significantly lighter...

And for all those condemning them... Don't you guys leave in Nigeria???

Adele said...

I read this couple's story a while ago. I think it was on this blog and also on other blogs like BN. There was some sort of campaign for their innocence and claims that they were being victimised. There was even a website set up specially to campaign for their appeal. I think I read that they were pastors or something like that and their friends and family from Nigeria were campaigning for their innocence. I cannot really comment on this case. I just pray that justice will be done on all sides. The UK justice system has been known to get it wrong sometimes with these child protection cases. There have been instances when they've wrongly convicted parents of abuse (if you read UK's Daily Mail regularly, you'll definitely come across such stories). There have also been cases like the sad sad case of Victoria Climbie when they got it awfully wrong by not protecting Victoria in spite of glaring evidence of her abuse.

However, I cannot but ask a few questions: If this couple is indeed innocent, then let the law take its course, but why would the children accuse their parents of abuse if they haven't been abused? Also, these are dark-skinned children. Dark skinned people don't show bruises as much as fairer skinned people.I doubt that you can get a lasting bruise by light spanking or loving parental "discipline". Where did the marks on their bodies come from?

In all, I feel for the children the most and pray that all will be well with them and that whatever happens with this case, they grow up in a stable and loving home.

I don't think a woman will carry a child for 9months and then maltreat that child... In this case she has 6 children.. If the story is true then may be both parents were maltreated by thier own parents growing up and then they are taking it out on thier kids..
If the story isn't true then the kids must have cooked up the story.. Kids in Uk knows that beating them is against the law that's y they take advantage of it.. I mean it's not easy to take care of little kids they can be over baring at times but not enough reason to maltreat them tho..

Don't know what to say..I did send the link about the Musa's petition for Linda to flag up..probably last year..there was an ongoing case going on with Haringey Council and think the Govt got involved too..because of the Climbie case they taking no chances..last we heard their eldest daughter was abused by her adopted brother(in the adoption home) but you would never hear that!!..
It's very very easy to brainwash kids in this country..but everyone loses the parents and the children..the Musa's must have done something that was blown out of proportion or offended someone in the Council real bad!!

Abba I pray You will bring the truth to the fore and the Musas can be freed from prison and restored with their seven children. We pray for the grandparents and all the extended family in Jesus name, amen
