The toes of a house maid identified as Aishatu have been allegedly cut by her employer, who was irked over the failure of Aishatu to meet her at the gate when she returned home from an outing.
A source who disclosed this said the case of Aishatu was one out of the many atrocities being committed against humanity, especially the female folk in Sokoto State.
The incident which happened in Rujin Sambo area of the state metropolis, was not the first of it’s kind according to a neighbour who craved anonymity.
The neighbour said the inhuman treatment against Aishatu who is Nupe from Niger State by her madam also from Niger, has become a recurring decimal, adding that the madam who is nursing a two-year-old baby often threatens to strangulate her maid if she tells anyone about her ordeal.
The recent brutal cuts have let the cat out of the bag as Aishatu is now looking for how to be reunited with her parents in Niger.
Narrating her ordeal in the hands of her employer, Aishatu said she does all the household chores and often goes days without food just as she suffers fatigue from work and pains from the various cuts inflicted on her by her employer.
Effort to get confirmation from the NAPTIP Zonal Commander, Sokoto Command, Barrister Tahir, before going to press were unsuccessful as he was said to have gone on an official engagement.
