She reportedly started working with the couple in January, 2022, and was being paid N15k per month
On April 20, 2022, the couple called the police to report that Joy had committed suicide following a misunderstanding with her madam, Fortune.
However, when the police visited the scene, they saw marks of violence on the body of the deceased, pointing at torture.
Confirming the incident, the Lagos State Police Command’s spokesperson, Bala Elkana, said: “Our operatives at Bariga received a complaint from a couple that their househelp committed suicide. That is the initial report that they got.
“The DPO led a team of Homicide detectives to the house and they saw the housegirl hanging on a rope but the way she stood on the rope raised an eyebrow because it actually looked like it was a stage managed event.
“The detectives went further to check for marks of violence and they saw a lot, fresh wound. She was actually tortured so there is a likelihood that she died and they tried to cover up by putting her on a rope to show she committed suici*e.”
