December 31, 2015 – Housemaid Steals Employer’s N3Million Jewellery For Boyfriend As Christmas Gift At Chevy View Estate Lekki Lagos
Elizabeth Igwe, a 20-year-old housegirl, was yesterday arraigned before a Tinubu Magistrates’ Court in Lagos for allegedly stealing her employer’s jewellery worth N3 million.
The prosecution said the accused unlawfully entered her employer’s room to steal the jewellery.
Police Inspector Francisca Okere told the court that the accused committed the offence on December 17 on Kazeem Street, Chevy View Estate in Lekki, Lagos.
“Igwe packed all the jewellery and gave them to her boyfriend at Alpha Beach. Before she was apprehended, the accused had planned to leave for her village for Christmas and had no plans of coming back to work for her boss,” he said.
In her confessional statement, Miss Igwe said she committed the offence because she is incapable of buying Christmas gift for her boyfriend who is now at large.
