Ilorin operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) have arrested a mistress, Hajia Balqees Yahaya Mohammed, for inflicting burns with a hot iron on two of her housemaids.
The housemaids – identified as Hauwa, 14, and Aisha, 12 – were punished by the said Hajia Mohammed for supposedly not flushing toilets at her residence after use.
The cruel mistress, said to be dealing in plastic bags (nylon) at Mandate Market along Western Reservoir road in Adewole, reportedly used the hot object on the victims’ buttocks.

It was learnt that the victims were noticed by neighbours, who observed that they were walking with difficulty.
Upon interviewing them, the victims were said to have reluctantly opened up that their mistress inflicted injuries on them for not flushing the toilet.
