Police Detains Employer Who Assaulted Her 14-Year-Old Maid In Lagos
In accordance with the information gathered, a Togolese who came alongside her grandmother to work in Lagos was brutally assaulted by her employer named Bisi Olukayode.
The 14-year-old Anjuah Sunday who was renamed Titi was living with her employer in Lekki Lagos state.
It was alleged that Bisi tortured the 14-year-old with sticks, wire and canes, during which the victim sustained injuries in different parts of her body.
Bisi supposedly usually closed up Sunday in a toilet anytime (Bisi) was heading out.
Some residents, whom the victim allegedly begged for food through the window of the toilet, alerted officials from the Office of the Public Defender.
A social worker in the OPD told newsmen that the agency visited the estate on Tuesday with a view to rescuing the victim. She said the officials reported at the Adeniji Adele Police Station and got police back up for the operation.
“We got there around 10am. The estate security guards cooperated with us after we told them our mission.
We, however, discovered that the suspect’s house was locked; though we suspected that the woman and the girl were inside the house. We called her telephone number and told her we had come to see her about the girl.
She immediately switched off the phone and refused to talk. “We didn’t leave until around 3pm because we learnt that the husband usually brought the children from school around that time. When we didn’t see him, we called him as well, but his phone rang out,” she added.
She noted that while the rescue team was leaving the estate, the security men were asked not to allow the couple sneak out with the maid.
Around 7pm, the suspect’s husband was said to have returned to the estate with the children in a cab.
The husband reportedly asked the cab driver to switch off the vehicle’s inner light, as he took their three children into the house.
