Woman charged to court for locking her 14-year-old maid in toilet for 20 days

A woman has been charged to court for allegedly locking her 14-year-old housemaid in a toilet for 20 days. Onyinye Chuks, 34, who lives at 19, Ojo Street, Shasha, Lagos, is facing a four-count charge bordering on assault for the crime she committed against her ward between May 2 and 22 at her home.



Ms. Chuks was yesterday brought before an Ikeja Chief Magistrate’s Court in Lagos State. The prosecutor, Sergeant Raphael Donny, told the court that the accused claimed that the housemaid stole her money so she beat the girl, locked her inside the toilet, fed her once and did not allow her to take a bath or change her clothes all through the period she was locked up. A neighbor eventually alerted police when she could not stand aside and watch any more.

Following the neighbor's report, the police went to the house and found the information to be true. The girl was immediately taken to the hospital while the accused was arrested. Ms. Chuks pleaded not guilty to the charges brought against her. The Chief Magistrate, Mrs. Davies Abegunde, granted the accused N1 million bail with two sureties in like sum. Vanguard reports that Abegunde ordered the accused to pay N200,000 into the Court Registrar’s account as part of the bail conditions and adjourned the case until June 21 for mention.

Women and their violence to domestic helps is really alarming, yet they'll be complaining about domestic violence by men. They should take a look at themselves.

I guess the fight against domestic violence should start from here. This is the part of the reason while some men beat their wives kurz most of them are extremely wicked and greedy. Imagine locking up a girl (a fellow woman) for 20 days inside a toilet not even an empty room, deprived her of bath and change of clothes for a complete 20 days, fed her once a day only God knows the kinda food she was served, as a woman, I suppose you are to change at worst 2 times per day (if you are not in your monthly flows) . Are you sure it's not inside a pit toilet she locked her? Imagine the kinda air that will be coming outta the toilet. Well, thank God woman are not stronger than men, if not most of them will be using pepper on their husbands penis.

Women and domestic violence is like bread and butter. The problem they have with men is because men are stronger. If they were stronger than men, we would've been talking about murder cases every day. Now look at the way they brutalize maids because these ones are helpless. The government should input a strong law that will protect children against this barbaric act. They should ban this culture of slavery, aka maids. If you want to employ a domestic staff, she/he must be 18yrs and above and must be paid weekly or monthly. So that she will know how to defend herself in times of violence. That's how they do in developed countries. Anybody taking underage as a maid is termed child labour or child trafficking. And should be arrested. We borrow western culture, but refuse to let go of this modern day slavery. Please government you are the only ones that can salvage this situation. Please don't fail these poor helpless kids.

Modern day slavery and human trafficking for servitude must stop!

If you can't give your own child away to some unknown person to be abused, then stop facilitating it with other people's children.

Don't try and take attention off domestic abuse. This and the abuse of women are two separate issues.

Sharap! Anon 20:08, they are the same thing. Domestic violence applies to everyone. Men, women, maids. Nobody deserves it. You can maltreat your maid and feel it's normal, then feel men beating the hell out of your wicked self is abuse. You are wicked and if you don't change you may be receiving violence from your man. Slave riders! Govt please protect this children from these violent women.
