Plans of a 14-year-old domestic servant to swindle her employer by stage-managing a robbery incident in his house has failed after the girl nabbed by the police.
The girl tied her hands to her master’s bedside in their residence in Gwarinpa, Abuja, after removing some valuable items from the room and informed her principal that three men had invaded the house.
The incident happened on Saturday at about 4:30p.m. in Adkhan Estate, Gwarinpa.
A source said the principal became suspicious when one of the stolen handsets was found with the girl three days after the supposed robbery.
The master reported at the police station on Wednesday when he was not satisfied with the girl’s explanation.
The Gwarinpa Divisional Police Station, CSP Nuruddeen Sabo, confirmed the incident and said the master did not press charges as they said the domestic servant was a relative.
“All the stolen items including laptops, jewellery, shoes, perfumes, cosmetics, and N31,000 were found in her room,” he said.
