Woman Arrested For Locking 14yr-Old Maid In Toilet.

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a woman who allegedly abused her 14-year-old househelp by locking her in the toilet.

The suspect whose name was not given by the police is said to be in the habit of locking her maid (name withheld) in the toilet any time she is going out.

While briefing the press on Monday, the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Edgal Imohimi, said the suspect was arrested on November 4, at about 1330hrs, at her Baruwa Estate home.

The Police Boss said “a concerned neighbour reported the case of the woman to the police, explaining her several abuses on the victim.

“As usual, the woman locked her maid in the toilet and and went to church, and when the neighbour could not take it, reports were made to the police.

“Based on complaints, the DPO of Ipaja Division visited the house at Baruwa Estate and forced the door open to rescue the victim.

Edgal further said that the child narrated her ordeal since she started living with the suspect.

“On close examination by the Command’s Gender Personnel, wounds were seen all over the victims’ body.

“The suspect will soon be charged to court,” the CP said.

The suspect, however denied the allegations of locking her maiden in the toilet always.

While speaking with journalists, she said the maid has been living with her for six months and she does not maltreatment her.

“On the said day, she refused to go to church, and she is used to such habit and I don’t usually lock her up in the toilet.

“I don’t maltreat her, I take good care of her and she attends the same school with my children. She does not do much at home and I don’t treat her as a maid.

“I only locked her in the toilet for the first time to punish her, so that she can change. Those who reported that I was in the habit of locking her in the toilet framed me up,” she said.
