Lagos State Govt To Prosecute Businesswoman Who Poured Hot Water On Salesgirl And Locked Her Up

The Victim, Bukola Akinola

Bukola, started working with Alhaja Rashidat Adeleke in 2019 and later moved into her boss' home due to the distance between her own home and the workplace. While living with her boss, Bukola is said to have suffered physical abuse from her occasionally.

A statement on the matter by the Directorate of Citizens Rights reads: "The Lagos State Government has announced the immediate prosecution of 50-year-old Mrs Rashidat Adeleke for allegedly assaulting her 29-year-old saleslady by pouring hot water on her face at the Ikotun area of the state.

"The suspect employed the victim as a saleslady in 2019, but she ended up residing with her due to high transportation fare and other stress-related issues for the past 18 months before the ugly incident happened.

"The victim narrated that her employer had the habit of abusing her at the slighted provocation. While narrating the ugly incident, the victim said two other sales representatives, aged 10 and 14, fought at the store, which resulted in the damage of some items.

"When they got home that evening, Alhaja Adeleke asked the victim how the bangles on sale were damaged by the younger sales girls and she responded that she had no idea of what happened. Alhaja Adeleke then angrily dragged her into the kitchen, locked her inside and asked the younger sales representatives if there was hot water and they responded that it was not available.

"Rashidat Adeleke reportedly boiled water and poured it on the head of the victim. The victim tried to escape, but was prevented from doing so by her boss. She reportedly boiled water the second time, poured it on her and the victim then collapsed. Despite being badly scalded, Alhaja Adeleke went ahead to flog the victim repeatedly."
