The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a man simply identified as Nathaniel for drugging and raping his 14-year old housemaid.
Nathaniel, who resides at Ajisegiri Street, Ikotun employed the services of the 14-year old girl who is an orphan from the the eastern part of Nigeria to work as a maid.
According to Punch, Nathaniel offered her juice that he had drugged, and by the time she woke up, she found she was naked with semen on her body.

Punch reports that the maid fled the house, dropping a letter for the suspect’s wife to narrate her ordeal on the sexual abuse she had allegedly suffered.
Read the letter below:
“Dear aunty, I want to go. I am suffering here. Look at what your husband has been doing to me. The last time that he did it, he gave me a drink and I did not know that he purposely gave me that drink so that I could fall asleep.
“It was when I woke up that I now found myself naked. I now saw white thing on my laps. This is what he was doing to me the other time that I told you that I wanted to go. I do not want to cause trouble for you. Please, call my brother to come and take me away. I want to go and I do not want to stay here again.”
The maid confided in a pastor within the neighbourhood, who in turn reported the incident to a Child's right organisation.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed Nathaniel’s arrest.
She said, “The state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, has directed that the case be charged to court.”
