My Madam Threatened To Throw My Corpse Away If I Die – Domestic Worker Cries Out

154
Fifteen-year-old Linda Agidi from Odu Local Government Area, Benue State, says she can no longer endure the alleged assaults she is going through in the hands of her boss, Mrs. Toyin Adeyemi.
The housemaid, who dropped out of school when she was in primary five, lives with the boss on Alade-Dada Close, Sanni Balogun, in the Abule-Egba area of Lagos State.

She said Adeyemi had frustrated her attempts to leave the house by taking away from her the phone numbers of family members, including that of one Mama Ade, who brought her to the woman. The minor, who barely speaks English, spoke with Saturday PUNCH on Wednesday, through an interpreter, who understands her indigenous language.


Agidi said the scars on her breast and chest were effects of the constant beating to which Adeyemi allegedly subjected her. She said she was coming out of the kitchen with hot water sometime in May when the woman collided with her, spilling the water onto her breast. “Madam beats me any time I make a slight mistake and has turned me to a slave.
There was a day she woke me up around 3am and put a generator on my head to punish me. She threatened to pour hot water on my body again if it fell. “I want to go back home, the suffering is too much but she had collected the phone numbers of my people from me,” Agidi said. She stated that she dropped out of school and enrolled for tailoring apprenticeship because her mother could no longer afford to pay her fees.
Agidi explained that at a point in her apprenticeship, her master requested training fee, which made her mother decide that she should come to Lagos to work.
