A housemaid who prepared jollof rice for her boss with two rats confessed to the act when she was caught by her boss’ son. The housemaid, Felicia was said to have been brought from Cotonou, a neighbouring country.
Although, the reason why she did that wasn’t stated, online reports claimed Felicia did so to punish her boss, who maltreated her.
While Felicia’s act is condemnable, it is good to note that employers need to treat their maids right because ‘your life is in their hands’. We also need to to stop employing underaged girls. There is a need for a law against employing young girls as maids, young girls should be under the protective care of their parents and not be used as househelps.
