A 14years old Housemaid Has Been Arrested For Poisoning His Master in Ondo State
In Akure the state capital of Ondo, a young boy of 14 years old has been nabbed by police officers for allegedly poisoning his boss who is 63years old for scolding him bitterly.
According to the man who spoke to Vanguard Newspapers, his wife, Sikirat had on the day of the incident, called the young boy to prepare his food for him as she was still in her shop. When it was time to eat, he noticed that the beans offered to him had a funny and pungent smell.
The man said: “I had even put a spoon of the beans in my mouth and about to swallow it when I perceived an offensive odour and an
unpleasant taste from the food.
I immediately vomited the beans and called her to ask why the beans smelt and tasted strange. But she claimed it was because she added spices. It was in the cause of interrogation by the residents in the neighbourhood that the housemaid confessed that she ground the medicine meant for rat that was bought few days ago by my wife and sprinkled its content into my share of the food. She later stated that she decided to add poison into my food in retaliation for the correction which I made when she committed an offence. After the confession, I contacted my wife to narrate the incident to her. When she arrived, she decided to report the matter at the Yaba Divisional Police Station in Ondo town for further investigation.”
The felonious case has been reported to the Divisional Police Officer.
