A teenage girl identified as Blessing was found by some residents crying at midnight for being locked out by her female boss.
Residents of the area raised alarm for help and traced the house of the compound where she lives in Asaba, Delta state.
The husband, identified as Gabriel, came out and said he had no idea their maid was outside.
He explained that when he asked his wife about their help, she said she has no idea where she was, so he assumed she was sleeping inside.
Crying, the maid revealed that even when her madam came out to change over, she saw her outside but went back inside and locked her outside.
The husband added that his wife sent out Blessing to sell drinks for her then locked her out when she came back.
“She hasn’t given her food since morning o,” he added.
“Nancy Nwaka,” is her name, the husband told the locals and asked them to do whatever they want about his wife’s action.
As the husband returned to his compound, the locals promised to return with welfare officials in the morning.
