Househelp stabs woman boss to death a week after starting work

A yet-to-be-identified woman was stabbed to death by her house help in her apartment on 29, Kiniun-Ifa Street, Sawmill, in the Gbagada area of Lagos State.

Reports could not place the real time the house help, identified simply as Peter, now on the run, committed the murder.

But the lifeless body of the woman, according to reports, was discovered on March 9, 2024, by her son, who came to visit.

The deceased was said to be the only occupant in the building where the crime was committed, though there are three shops in front of the building.

A resident in the area, 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.”

A Vanguard report said the fleeing househelp resumed work a week before the tragedy occurred.

It was further gathered that 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.
