Woman Allegedly Beats Her 10-year-old House Maid To Death


A middle-aged woman,  has been arrested by the police for allegedly beating her 10-year-old housemaid, Joy Mbafan, to death.

PUNCH explained that Linda was flogging Joy around 3am last Monday when she fainted and died.

It was while Linda went to the Ikorodu General Hospital morgue to deposit Mbafan’s corpse, that a doctor on duty noticed marks on the body and alerted the police.

According to a police source, Linda confessed to beating the girl.

Meanwhile, a neighbour of Linda said she also starves Joy of food apart from beating her.

 “She usually beat the girl for messing up their apartment. Around 3am on the day the girl died, I heard her crying as the woman (Alapa) flogged her. I woke up my husband to intervene. He said he was tired of the woman’s insults. After a while, she stopped crying.

“It was when I came back from work that afternoon that I saw a crowd on our premises in tears. They said Joy (Mbafan) was dead. The woman’s husband was not at home that day. It was the landlord that told him about the incident on the telephone.”

Another neighbour explained that Joy’s father is dead while her mother is ill, adding that Linda brought her to Lagos from a village in the eastern part of Nigeria.
