Man beheads retired Judge in Ogun State

A 25 year old house help identified simply as David has been arrested for attacking and beheading a 65 year old retired Chief magistrate, Vanguard reports.
Olufunmilayo Timeyin was slaughtered at her residence in Laderin estate in Obafemi-Owode LGA of Ogun State.
David allegedly scaled the fence of the late Timeyin’s bungalow, deactivated the security system inside the building and laid siege within the premises before hacking the retired magistrates to death.
David, an Igede, Benue state-born was reportedly employed two months ago and sent packing two weeks ago for allegedly stealing his boss valuables including phones and jewelries which led to his arrest and subsequently release on the boss order.
Vanguard reports that after killing his former boss, David (pictured above) scaled the fence back into the bush behind the house where he hid himself to avoid being caught.
It was one of the sons of the late Chief Magistrate, Olumide, who heard the desperate cries of his mum that raised alarm and residents in-turn alerted the men of the Ogun State Vigilance Service.
The police found a naked David at the back of the house hiding inside the bush and arrested him. The corpse of the retired magistrate was later taken away to the mortuary.
Policemen from Kemta Idi-aba and Ibara cordoned off the area while detectives searched for evidence of the crime inside the house. Journalists were barred from the house.

    Its a rather unfortunate incident. We should try our best to do without these kinds of people who are brought into families in the name of househelps. Most of them are emotionally and psychologically traumatized. I have had my own fair share of househelps and aboki (security man) experience. Its terrible. I am lucky to have survived it. 95% of people who do this kind of hand work have one psychological problem or the other. This is something we don't see with ordinary eyes. It is a problem that is not commonly treated in this part of the world. My prayer is that God opens our eyes to these malfunctionalities before we make our choice of househelps, nannies, baby sitters, security men, e.t.c
