Few months ago, a house help, Helen Wilson, was arrested for allegedly stealing her boss’ Toyota Camry and looting her property in the Victoria Island area of Lagos State. The suspect was tracked to a location in Benue State through her Facebook post, where she was apprehended by some military officers alerted by her boss, Aisha Bulama.
The Garkida, Adamawa State indigene had been working for Bulama for the past five years at her house in Block C6, 1004 Estate, where the incident happened. The boss was said to have travelled to Kaduna State for a wedding last week when Wilson, together with her boyfriend, one Martins, drove the 2009 model car away.
A neighbour, who noticed that the car was not in the usual parking lot, alerted Bulama that her car had been stolen. Bulama, who spoke with Punch’s correspondent on the telephone, said the case was reported at the Victoria Island Police Division.
