A Chinese couple has been arrested by the FCT Police Command for locking up their Nigerian domestic staff against their consent for four months.
Some Chinese couple who are extremely wicked has been arrested for locking their 8 Nigerian employees in their house for four months against their will.
According to information gathered, the domestic workers were locked up in the couple’s apartment and are not allowed to go out for any reason.
Should they sneak out and their employers get to know, they get punished with a salary deduction.
One of the ladies after the authorities came to their aid narrated her ordeal saying:
“When I was seriously sick, I asked these people (Chinese employers) to open the gate for me, but they refused until I became very angry before they opened the door. I know my life may be at risk but I don’t mind, let the world know what is happening.
“They told us that if someone was going out, he could help buy something for us, but when this man (referring to a colleague) went out to buy sachet water, they deducted his salary. What do they want us to do?
“We had to stay in the room and talk to people through the windows. They didn’t give us food; apart from the salary, they didn’t give us anything; they even cut our salaries.”
The deduction of salary and lock-up was also hit hard at Alex, the driver of the Chinese couple.
“They never allowed us to go out since February; if any of us went out and they know, a certain percentage of the person’s salary would be deducted.
“Even on Monday when this man (pointing at one of his co-workers) sent someone to buy water, N500 was deducted from his salary that has yet to be paid,” he narrated.
Authorities have vowed to prosecute the victims at all cost.
