According to Nigerian music writer Joey Akan, he fired his housemaid for reportedly taking all the food he had stockpiled in his home.
The presenter said that the maid made sure that all of the food disappeared within three weeks, just before he left for Europe.
Joey claims that when he came home, he saw that his house’s stock of noodles, rice, beans, garri, eggs, and other goods had run out.
He claimed that the fact that he had returned from his vacation broke made him even more enraged by the housekeeper’s behavior, and he fired her right away.
The podcaster recommended listeners to stop any theft committed by domestic employees as soon as they became aware of such behavior since, if tiny thefts go unpunished, they escalate over time to more heinous offenses.
”Went to Europe, returned after 3 weeks and my cleaner had emptied my entire pantry.
Two full cartons of noodles, empty. Eggs gone. Rice, beans, garri, butter, spices, canned foods, everything. And I returned broke to an empty house. It pained me, so I let her go immediately.
It’s not just food biko. That’s entry level. They get emboldened and show you real shege. It all started from two eggs a day, and food in the fridge, and I let it go, because “it’s just food.”
Please nip theft in the bud. Protect yourself.”
