What an evil madam did to her housemaid for being stubborn will make you cry out in tears after seeing this photo.
Kemi was beaten with cable wire and iron for being stubborn
A heartless woman identified as Fatima Williams, and her neighbour, Waliu Yusuf, have been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly brutalising a 16-year-old girl, identified only as Kemi, with a hot iron and electric cables.
Punch reports that the housemaid identified as Kemi was left with deep cuts after the incident. The girl brought from Cotonou, Benin Republic to serve as a maid was reportedly living with Williams, popularly called Alhaja, since January 2016 as a housemaid. The incident happened at Williams’ apartment is on Soji Adepegba Close, Allen Avenue, Ikeja.
The girl is now on admission at the Police Cottage Hospital, Ikeja. Speaking about the incident, Kemi said: “On that day, Alhaja instructed me to sweep the compound. She also asked me to clean the windows and wash some clothes.
“I started with the washing and she went out. When she returned, she was angry that I had not swept the compound. She called the man to beat me up.”
On her part, the Williams said she called Yusuf to beat the girl for being headstrong. She said Kemi’s stubbornness was too much and was causing her increased blood pressure.
She said, “The girl’s brother brought her to me on January 10, 2016. She usually stole things from the house. I kept reporting her to her brother and even asked him to come to pick her, but he refused; I got tired of the girl.
“She continued her rudeness and messed up the whole house. She also urinated on the bed. During all this trouble, my blood pressure got high. I had to use a BP machine in the house. I called and spoke to her like a child, but she would not listen. I usually gave her the food I ate. I gave her brother N40,000 in January.
“When she got me angry on that day, I was tired of beating her and I called Waliu (Yusuf). He was using an iron. As he beat her, she held his clothes and the iron injured her.”
Twenty-five-year-old Yusuf said he had wanted to scare the victim with the iron when it injured her.
He said, “The girl went into the kitchen and brought an insecticide, threatening to kill herself. I then tried to take the substance away from her. She began to struggle with me. I started flogging her and she held on to my clothes.
“Meanwhile, I was ironing some clothes that time. I used the iron to scare her to leave my clothes. That was how the iron fell on her. I only wanted to scare her away.”
The state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, who paraded the suspects at the command headquarters, Ikeja, said they would be charged to court at the end of investigation.
