A woman has been accused of locking her 14-year-old housegirl in toilet anytime she is leaving for church.
The incident happened at an apartment at Baruwa Estate, Ipaja, Lagos.
The police alleged that the employer, Mabel Okechukwu, locked the girl, whose name they wouldn’t disclose, up in her toilet when leaving for church last Sunday, adding it was a neighbour who witnessed what happened that invited the police.
Okechukwu, however, denied the allegations. In her defence, she said that the teenager, who she disclosed had been living with her for six months, was not her maid but an in-law.
Edgal, however, said that the suspect would be charged to court immediately investigation was over.
