Employer Cuts Maid's Toes
The toes of a house maid identified as Aishatu have been allegedly cut by her employer, who was irked over the failure of Aishatu to meet her at the gate when she returned home from an outing. A source who disclosed this said the case of Aishatu was one out of the many crimes being committed against humanity, especially the female folk in Sokoto State. The incident which happened in Rujin Sambo area of the state metropolis, was not the first of it’s kind according to a neighbour whoasked to remain anonymous. The neighbour said the inhuman treatment against Aishatu who is Nupe from Niger State by her madam also from Niger, has become a recurring thing, adding that the madam who is nursing a two-year-old baby often threatens to strangulate her maid if she tells anyone about her ordeal.
