A Nigerian lady is battling for her life at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja after her 18-year-old housemaid beat and stabbed her to coma in Ejigbo.
Nigerian Teacher, identified as Mistura was attacked by her housemaid, Susan Samson, after the latter stole some money from her madam.
The madam reportedly got in touch with the agent who brought Samson immediately, but the fear of going back made her attack Mistura.
Punch reported that the unfortunate took place on Saturday, March 3, when Samson poured fresh blended pepper on her on the bed and stabbed her with a wine bottle.
She had been employed on February 4,2018 to assist her madam with domestic chores.
Mistura who was rushed to LASUTH has been in coma since Monday, March 5 and on Wednesday, March 7, she went through a three-hour surgery but she is still yet to come out of coma.
18-year-old Samson was apprehended by neighbors who heard Mistura screaming for help and was immediately handed over to officers from Ejigbo police division.
The victim’s husband Alhaji Sikiru who was at work when the incident happened 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 money again. 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. 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.”
Alhaji Sikiru added that on Tuesday, March 6, he had to get six pints of blood because she lost a lot of blood. She was given 4 pints but after the surgery Mistura is still in coma.
“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.”
The state’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Chike Oti, confirmed the arrest of the young lady. However, the woman was advised to get a maid by family members because her blood pressure is always high.
May God have mercy on her!
