Pregnant Nigerian Woman Miscarried After Lebanese Boss Kicked Her Stomach

Mrs Alexandra Ossai, a 7-month pregnant woman has lost her pregnancy after a brutal attack by her Lebanese boss in Lagos state Nigeria.

Kaveh Noine, a Lebanese businessman allegedly kicked his employee in the stomach.

Ossai, who until December 13, 2013, was a supervisor with a Lebanese owned firm, Toppan Printing Company, alleged that Noine assaulted her many times during her eight months stay at the company.

She has undergone an emergency medical operation as her placenta was said to have been damaged.

She said, “I started working at Toppan in April. I earn N17,000 salary and work from Monday to Saturday. Anytime Noine was annoyed, he would beat the person he was angry with. Sometimes, he would throw whatever he can lay his hands on at the person. Prior to that incident, Noine had slapped me many times.

“Noine had said he would hold me responsible for the shortcomings of the people I supervised. As a result, I often assisted my subordinates in their duties to make sure that Noine had nothing to complain about.”

On the 12th of December 2013, Ossai alleged that Noine got angry when he saw something on the floor.

“It was a container for a drug. That is what we do; we produce packets for drugs and perfumes. So when Noine saw one of such packets on the floor, he was so angry that he gave me a blow to the chest,” she recalled.

She said Noine subsequently went into his office and typed a termination letter for Ossai, which she refused to sign. Her refusal allegedly enraged him further and after verbally abusing her, he was said to have told her that it was her last warning.

The following day, Ossai ran into Noine while coming from his secretary’s office. Noine allegedly dragged Ossai back to the office and called her a wicked woman.

Ossai said, “He said I looked like a mad person. After abusing me, he hit me on my neck twice. Then, without warning, he kicked my stomach with his knee. Some co-workers were there but they did not intervene. I felt a sharp pain in my stomach.”

To cut the long story short, she was rushed to the hospital last week Monday (December 16, 2013) when she started bleeding profusely.

The mother of one was told her placenta had been damaged due to the kick her angry Lebanese boss gave her in the stomach.

“I didn’t know that my baby had died until two days after the surgery. I was told my baby lost his face too due to the kick.” – Ossai said

The case was reported to the police station. On getting to Ossai’s workplace, police officers were told her Lebanese boss had travelled out of the country.

“It took a long time for the complainant to report the matter. But we are investigating.” – said Ngozi Braide, Lagos state Police spokesperson

What a gross injustice! This type of assault is uncalled for.

RIP to the innocent baby.

  1. Mr. Falana, please intercede on behalf of this lady to file a civil suit
    against the Lebanese Owner, the Corporate Entity and the Supervisor as they are accomplices in this crime while the Nigerian government handles the criminal aspect of the case i.e. reckless endangerment of a pregnant woman that resulted in the death of her seven months old fetus. Nigerian Women Organizations at home should come to the aid of this woman, she needs help.

  2. I said it before and I will say it again Lebanese are all criminals. I advice this woman to get a good lawyer to sue the company.

  3. This is terrible, I can’t hold my tears. How can right minded Nigerians not be outraged about this? Na to write letter back and forth our so called leaders sabi write. Masses, why can’t we go close down that place if the stupid police no fit do anything. God save Naija from all these wicked leaders and those they let into our country to commit all atrocities all this kind.

  4. Nigerians have suddenly turned into slaves in their own land
    Oh God pls accept the soul of this innocent baby.
    Fashola, Falana and all dignitaries must take up this case.
    This oppression must end

  5. Ossai’s manager must be arrested for obstruction of justice; aide and abetting. You cannot commit such crime in any civilized world, our immigration should always conduct routine check to ensure that Nigerian citizens are not treated like slaves in those establishment owned by Lebanese. He needs to come to Nigeria to face criminal charges.
    Still crying. Injustice Injustice evil evil

  6. This is what Nigerian has turned into. They have turned all our less educated citizens into slave.
    So all because of N17,000 salary, you have suddenly turned your employees into slave, Nonnie wherever you are, the ghost of this innocent baby will continue to pursue you.
    No wonder some Lebanese men were held in terrorism related offences last month. They have suddenly turned Nigeria into their oppression territory.
    Shame on the leaders of this nation for allowing all these nonentities into the country

  7. Nigerians are you the only people on the surface of the earth

  9. I hereby call on the National Human Right Commission under the leadership of Professor Chidi Odinkalu and proven activists like Mr.Femi Falana and Dr. Joe Okei Odumakin to please ensure that justice prevails.It’s a shame that non entities from third world countries treat our citizens with gross disdain even on our soil.Madam Braide must truly match her words with action particularly on this case.Justice must prevail.

  11. becoming a slave in your country will not happen. Nigerian should confiscated the said company till they produce the fucking bastard.
    You can’t try that shit in his own country because they respect their woman.if it where our man that did that to his country woman that person would have been history.
    The other foolish colleagues of her where their watching the idiot kick their sister on the stomach.
    I think they should go out of the country for once especially Muslim country and see how they treat their woman.
    The colleagues should go to jail for 9 months because they as they are all accompanist to attempted murder .

  16. Weather labanese or whatever,there must fish out that river he had hide himself,so he was afraid of trouble and he went ahead in cicking a pregnant woman on her stomach,oh my God,this guy is wicked in our own country too?God will never forgive him for sending an innocent child to death let were he is if not-he should be kill too because people like him deserves death,as for the mother of the child,it is well with you!God will meet you at the point of your kneel,were that guy ran to,he will never see favour for doing such thing to a citizen of her own country!take heaart ohhhhh,sorry I wish you quick recovery,

  17. The efforts of the Nigerian Press in bringing the issue of Physical and Sexual Abuse of Labor by Expatriate Employers is greatly appreciated in that gone are the days of Industrial Servitude. Though, there is more to be done in the present case to bring justice to the victim. The press should assist in procuring the services of human rights counsel for the sister either by public solicitation in both Nigeria and the US or by private appeal to the Catholic Church. The Lagos State Labor Department should freeze the personal and commercial bank accounts associated with this case and should appoint a Task Force to take over the day to day operations of the company. So that there will be no loss of potential employment. In order to determine the extent of this abuse and mistreatment the press should establish a hotline or website in which persons that have suffered similar abuse of their rights as human beings would call in or write to relay their experiences. We in diaspora employ Nigerian Press to perform this task in the spirit of their corporate social responsibility
