Househelp Stabs Boss To Death In Lagos 7 days After Resuming Work

A woman was stabbed to death by her house help in her apartment on 29, Kiniun-ifa street Sawmill, in the Gbagada area of Lagos.

No one could tell when exactly the fleeing househelp identified simply as Peter, allegedly committed the murder.

But the lifeless body of the woman, according to information gathered by Vanguard, was discovered on Saturday, March 9, 2024, by her son who came visiting.

When Vanguard arrived at the building yesterday, it was under lock and key.

The deceased was said to be the only occupant in the building.

There were three shops in front of the building.

A resident who spoke on the condition of anonymity said, “The woman’s son, upon arriving at the compound, went straight to his mother’s apartment, only to find her lifeless body on the staircase, with blood all over”.

“A long piece of wood suspected to be the murder weapon was also found. By then, the body has started swelling, suggesting that the woman might have been killed days before”.

It was gathered that the fleeing househelp resumed work a week before tragedy occurred.

A relative of the agent that brought the fleeing househelp had been arrested, as the unidentified agent was nowhere to be found.

Efforts to speak with the deceased son failed as he was too devastated to speak.

Policemen at the Ifako Police division were said to have visited the scene and evacuated the corpse.

When the Lagos state public relations officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin was contacted, he stated that the househelp had been arrested and transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCIID, Panti.
