Oyinyen Chuks, 34, was on Tuesday charged at Ikeja
Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State with locking
up her 14-year old housemaid in a toilet for 20 days.

the offences were committed between May 2 and May
22 at the residence of the accused.

Donny said that the accused alleged that the
housemaid stole her money and beat her
mercilessly.

“The accused locked the girl inside her toilet, fed her
once and didn’t allow her to take a bath or change her
clothes for those weeks in bondage.

“It was one of the neighbours who could not bear the
torment anymore that informed the police”, he said.

The prosecutor said that following the report, the police
visited the house and found the girl in the condition.

taken to the hospital for treatment”, Donny said.

preferred against her.

Court Registrar ‘s account as part of the bail conditions.
She adjourned the case until June 21 for mention.
