14-yr-old maid arrested for putting poison in employer's food

A 14-year-old housemaid has been arrested in Ondo State for poisoning her master's food because he maltreated her.

This is a very potent rat poison

Punch reports that Akinnifesi was arrested by operatives of the state command after she laced her master's food with rat poison with the intention to kill him.

The incident reportedly happened at the residence of Alhaji Akinlosotu on Adetomowo Street, Ondo town, on Friday, May 5, 2017.

Narrating the incident, the 63-year-old Akinsolotu said his wife had asked the maid to prepare beans for the family but that she allegedly added rat poison to the food.

Alhaji Akinsolotu added that as he was eating the food, he noticed that it had a strange taste and an offensive odour.

He said he vomited the little he had swallowed from the food and asked the maid about the content of the food.

“It was in the course of interrogation by our neighbour that the maid confessed that she put rat poison into my own share of the food.

She also confessed that she decided to add poison to my food because I beat her anytime she committed an offence in the house.”

Confirming the incident, the State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), ASP Femi Joseph, said the command has arrested the girl and would investigate the matter.
