Shocking! Housemaid Beats Boss To A Pulp In Lagos After Stealing
A civil servant identified simply as Mistura, is currently fighting for her life at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja. It’s understood she was violently attacked by her housemaid who beat her up in the Ejigbo area.
According to Punch Metro, Mistura had been in a coma since Monday, March 5, 2018 after her housemaid, Susan Samson, attacked her with blended pepper and a wine bottle. Despite being in surgery for three hours on Wednesday, the victim hasn’t improved and remains in the intensive care unit of LASUTH.
It’s gathered Mistura, who taught in a public secondary school in Lagos, had employed Samson on February 4, 2018 to assist her with domestic chores. However, trouble started when the 18-year-old suspect stole her boss’ money last Friday and Saturday. The stolen money was eventually found in the housemaid’s bag and her Madam alerted the agent who had brought her.
In a desperate attempt to run away from the house which was under lock by her boss, Susan poured blended pepper on her while she lay on the bed. She then smashed a bottle of champagne on the victim’s head repeatedly until she passed out. It took the intervention of residents who heard the victim’s cry for help before the housemaid could be overpowered and handed over to policemen from the Ejigbo division.
According to the victim’s husband, Alhaji Sikiru, he had gone to work when the incident happened. He said:
“An agent brought her to my wife on February 4, 2018. The girl said although she was from Ogoja, Cross River State, she had her primary and secondary education in Ikorodu, Lagos State, where she had lived the better part of her life.
“I had gone to work around 6am on Monday when my wife was attacked. But when I was called, I went to make a statement at the Ejigbo Police Station where the girl was being detained. That was where she told me everything that happened.
“She said last Friday, my wife accused her of stealing some money. Again on Saturday, there was an allegation she stole another money. I was surprised because my wife did not tell me that the maid she employed was stealing her things.
“After I left the house on Monday, my wife asked her to buy balm for her down the street. While she was away, my wife went to her room and found the stolen money in her bag, including some other items which she (Samson) stole from her shop.
“My wife called the agent that brought her and asked him to come over to the house. The agent immediately called the girl to know what happened. The girl said she didn’t know why she (Mistura) called him.
“At this time, she had become suspicious. So, when she got back to the house, she went to her bag and discovered that the stolen money and other items had been recovered by my wife.”
He disclosed that it was while his wife was waiting for the agent who brought the housemaid to come, that she locked the two gates in the house and kept the keys.
“When the girl saw that her secret was about to be exposed, she wanted to escape. On discovering that the pedestrian and drive gates had been locked, she became desperate.
“She went to the kitchen, took a bowl of blended pepper, and poured it on my wife on the bed. My wife could not see again, but she groped to the main gate. She started calling for help because she could not also open the gate.
“The girl went inside the house and found a bottle of champagne, which I had kept for an occasion. She smashed it on my wife’s head five times. And she collapsed.
“Some residents, who had gathered outside the gate after hearing my wife’s call for help, caught her as she tried to escape. They also found my wife in a pool of blood and rushed her to a hospital,” he added.
Alhaji Sikiru also said that upon the police visiting the house, more stolen items were found in the suspect’s room. While expressing concern over his wife’s state, he hoped she would make it out alive.
“She lost a lot of blood and I had to get six pints of blood yesterday (Tuesday). Because her blood level was low, the doctors gave her four pints so she could go through a surgery which started from 1am and ended around 4.30am on Wednesday. The surgery didn’t bring out anything. She is still in a coma.
“My wife is in the intensive care unit of LASUTH. Her brain has collapsed and has been removed from the body and kept somewhere. Her kidney is already packing up. I hope she makes it out alive,” he added.
According to a Punch Metro, a source revealed that in 2017,the couple had a disagreement over the issue of getting a maid as the husband was against the idea. The dispute was so intense that relatives had to intervene.
“The woman has high blood pressure and her personal doctor told the husband in January that the woman’s BP was still high but she said she would be better if he allowed her to have a maid. That was when the man succumbed. But see what it has caused,” she said.
According to the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chike Oti, it’s a case of attempted murder. He said:
“The said Susan Samson suspected that her boss had discovered some items she stole and hid in her room. She subsequently mixed a large quantity of pepper in water and poured it on the woman’s face to render her defenceless.
“She subsequently hit her head repeatedly with a big bottle of wine which grievously harmed the woman. The state Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, has decried this act wickedness and ordered a thorough investigation and diligent prosecution of the case.”
The Chief Medical Director of LASUTH, Professor Wale Oke, said the victim was receiving treatment at the hospital. He said:
“She had a surgery yesterday, which was successful. She is, however, not out of the woods yet. She is still in a coma. We have to wait for the brain to heal from the injuries.”
