intentions to seek justice for a lady who was physically abused by her
boss after accusing her of stealing his phone.

stealing his phone. The lady was brutalized by her boss and locked
inside the toilet for six days without food or water.
He further revealed that due to hunger, the lady had to survive on her own faeces and drinking the toilet water.
On the sixth day, the lady was given N1000 to taker her of herself.
He wrote; “Please who can introduce me to a senior official in
NAPTIP who can ensure someone gets justice? A young lady was accused of
stealing her employer’s phone, beaten badly then locked up in a toilet
for 6 days without food & water. She had to drink water from the
toilet to survive.
She had to eat her own faeces & drink water from the toilet
to survive. On the 7th day, she was abandoned by a roadside & given
N1000. Her wounds are currently infected and gangrenous.
Her family have reported to @PoliceNG officials who are treating the matter with levity.
They reported to NAPTIP 2 weeks ago. NAPTIP officials have only
visited the hospital today to take her statement because my office has
become involved. I’m mad to my bones and I want to take this as far as
it can go.
UPDATE: @naptipnigeria official, Mr Marcus, is refusing to
attending to this matter with seriousness. He’s lied to us that the
couple were arrested, when in truth they weren’t. He’s aggressive for no
reason. Obviously been compromised.
UPDATE: @segalink has gotten me a contact @PoliceNG. A petition will be submitted tomorrow morning.
UPDATE: @NhrcTweets has contacted me as well. I have been told an official will contact me shortly.”
