Drama In Caroline Danjuma House As Domestic Workers Test Positive For COVID-19

Caroline Danjuma Son Infects Domestic Workers With COVID-19

Nollywood Actress, Caroline Danjuma, has fired her mad who tested positive for the coronavirus .

The worker in question, Oyindamola Alexander, was treated of the disease at the Lagos isolation centre in Onikan and was discharged on April 20.

She alleged that Caroline’s son first tested positive for COVID-19 before she did, an allegation which the actress refutes.

Oyindamola, a graduate of English and Literary Studies from the University of Ado Ekiti, was hired by Caroline on March 11, 2020.

She claimed she was hired to supervise the cleaner, washer man, driver and cook.

Oyindamola told PUNCH that Caroline’s 11-year-old son returned to the country from the United Kingdom and began showing symptoms of COVID-19.

Officials of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) were contacted, she said, and the boy was tested and confirmed positive.

The domestic worker said Caroline’s son arrived from London a few days after her boss gave her some money.

“A week to the lockdown, she asked if I had money for my family to stock up food. My parents are in Ekiti and my husband is in Benin, though we have some misunderstanding,” she said.

“I told her that I had yet to send money to them, but I believe that they would cope somehow. She said she would give me some money to help them. She then gave me N30,000 for which I was grateful. She never said it was my salary.”

Oyindamola, 33, added that all workers in the house were tested except the cook.

She said that after she went into isolation, she contacted her boss to pay her but “my boss started abusing me. She said what about the N30,000 she gave me when I had not even started working. She said the money was my salary for the month.

“She said she had been feeding me and my attitude was unbecoming, and as a matter of fact, I was no longer working with her and that I deserved what I was going through. She asked if she was the one who impregnated me.”

Oyindamola said her bed at the isolation centre was beside that of the cleaner, who also tested positive for COVID-19.

Days later, she said her boss called, paid them and fired her.

“She sent me N23,000 and N50,000 to the cleaner. She had apparently removed the N30,000 she gave me initially and the N7,000 she said was a refund for my missing money. She said I lied that my money was stolen,” she said, adding that two days later, she got a WhatsApp message from Caroline that her laptop was missing.

Oyindamola said the actress has since been threatening to get her arrested.

Caroline, however, in a text message sent to Oyindamola said the domestic worker got infected after going out of the house without permission.

The actress also told PUNCH that she fired Oyindamola for attempting to extort her.

She claimed that Oyindamola’s overbearing attitude made two domestic workers leave the house and that the other domestic worker tested positive for the virus because she and Oyindamola shared a room together.

Caroline said no member of her family tested positive for coronavirus.

“Oyin does not work in the house. She orders people around. She is rude. I just cannot stay with her. She is not the only one working for me. I still have others. All others are still working for me and I am paying them,” she said.

The actress wondered why Oyindamola would think the money given to her was a gift.

She said her children returned to the country on March 23 and that she immediately isolated them and had everyone tested.

Caroline said she kept in touch with Oyindamola while the domestic worker was in isolation.

“She stayed in the main house and shared a room with the other girl. I was calling to check up on her and pray with her while in isolation. Then one day, she called and said she wanted to be paid. And I blasted her. And before you know it, she said she contracted COVID-19 in my house,” she said.

    What do you expect from so called “educated dumbass Naija rich people”? Being an ex- wife of Danjuma doesn’t give her the right to maltreat the poor! Dumbass yellow bone!

    Firstly, d lady is not a maid but the house keeper.

    Sad she had to take a job as an house keeper but better than stealing or prostitution.

    Sad she got d virus. It is also implied that she was pregnant. I pray she recovers from it.

    Unfortunately her job does not come with a sick pay. So she is at the mercy of d bosses generosity. Wisdom should have said dt is not the time to be saying she got infected by d boss’s son.

    She assumed she got a windfall of 30k turns out it was not. Why did she think she will get approximately 60% of her pay to buy food? If she was in doubt why did she not confirm? Who pays a bonus mid year for virus? It sounds to my like an you.

    She comes across as a troublemaker to me. No one wants a troublemaker in a work place especially if they live with you.

    Please folks, don’t jump into conclusions based on one-sided story. Our people know how to lie very well and get coerced sympathy.

    This story doesn’t seem to be saying it all. Caroline Danjuma’s 11-year old son, Solomon, comes back into the country from London with Coronavirus; infests the house keeper and the cleaner with the COVID – 19 disease. What about his mother, Caroline, who must have had the first contact with the son, Solomon; was she not infected as well and where was all happening: in Calabar or in Lagos? My comments will depend on the answers to my questions
