A beautician, identified only as Oby, has been arrested by the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly beating her maid, Miracle, to death on Lateef Aregbe Street, Ago Palace Way, Okota, in the Isolo area of the state.
The mother of two had descended on the eight-year-old on Saturday and beaten her till she collapsed and gave up the ghost. She was allegedly plotting with some persons to dispose of the corpse when some neighbours raised the alarm and reported the case to the police. The suspect was subsequently detained at the Isolo Police Division.
A resident of the area said, “She brought the victim and another girl by name Chinacherem, from their village in Anambra State some years ago. They were formerly going to school before she stopped them. She usually maltreated the two girls and would wake them up as early as 4.30am to start working. She beat them for the least provocation."
