A 20-year-old house help, Happy Edom in Asaba, Delta state, has disappeared from where she works around Ogbeosowe quarter with N600,000 belonging to her boss, Mrs Anne Adigwe.
Adigwe, a widow, who narrated her ordeal in the hands of the Happy to DAILY POST, said “I lost my husband a year ago and my children are grown up”.
“None of them in the house, they are all married and left the house. They gave me a house help from Akwa Ibom. She was humble initally until she started following men.
“On a Saturday morning , someone brought the N600,000 for me because of our meeting. I handover the money to her to keep.
“But around 4:30pm she claimed she was going to make her hair. Unknown to me she left with the money in a bag.
“Around 5pm, my meeting member came, and I called her GSM line to no avail. I started searching for her before I went and reported to the police”.
The police spokesman in the state, DSP, Andrew Aniamaka, confirmed that the matter was reported at the state CID.
“We are investigating the disappearance of the house help. Her GSM line is not going through, but the police are making efforts to visit her parents in Akwa ibom, we will get her at all costs”, he told DAILY POST.
Sources said the house help may have gone to African country as she had once told a friend that if she had her way, she would go leave the country so to assist her poor parents who could no longer afford her education.
Happy was said to have dropped out college in SS1.
