MAID BATHED WITH HOT WATER BY HER MISTRESS

MAID BATHED WITH HOT WATER BY HER MISTRESS

A 15-year-old citizen of Republic of Benin, Sadia (surname unknown), has regretted her decision to seek the job of a housemaid with one Mrs Bunmi Oladele, a full-time housewife in Ibadan, Oyo State. With her face swollen and both eyes shut from the effect of beating, tears rolled down her cheeks as she lay on the bed at a hospital she was taken for treatment after she was battered by her mistress.

It was gathered that Mrs Oladele was arrested on Sunday, January 25, 2014, after neighbours noticed the housemaid’s swollen face, said to have been the result of the severe beatings from her mistress, and reported at the nearest police station. The Divisional Police Officer in charge of Eleyele Division, Olawole Ayoola, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, ordered the arrest of the woman.

Aside the swollen face, Sadia was said to have suffered burns on her chest as a result of hot water poured on her by the suspect. The girl’s offence was that she didn’t know how to sweep very well.
