A woman, Nene Steve, has been arrested by operatives of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department of the Lagos State police command for allegedly killing her maid, Joy Adole Aboel. Steve, who is a resident of No. 18, Ogundola Street, Bariga, Lagos, was accused of beating her maid (Aboel) to death and then went ahead to hang her in order to make it look like a suicide action.
It was gathered that the suspects were arrested on Wednesday by detectives following a complaint lodged by the suspects at the station. The couple had gone to the station to report the death of their house-help who, according to them committed suicide.
It was further gathered that contrary to their claims, homicide detectives, on arrival at the scene discovered that the deceased was still standing while a rope was hanging on her neck, which made the suspect’s story suspicious. (Text and photo courtesy Guardian)
