Maid Steals her Boss’ $10,000, Changes at N86 to a DollarLagos state police command have arrested a maid for allegedly stealing her boss’ $10,000 in Gbagada and changing it to Naira at the rate of N86 per Usd.

The maid, identified as Blessing Paul, was was reported to have forcibly gained entry to her boss’ room with a knife while she was at work.

It was gathered that the maid, who had been stealing money and other valuables from her victim’s home, handed over the stolen foreign currencies to the house guard identified as Daniel.

The guard in turn handed the money to a security man at another residence in Gbagada, who in turn took it to a Bureau De Change (BDC) operator for the Naira equivalent.

However the operator was said to have told policemen he received only about $5,000 from Amos. Instead of giving them N360/USD, the BDC operator gave the suspects at N86 per dollar, thereby shortchanging the alleged thieves of more than N2m.

According to the command’s spokesman, Olarinde Famous-Cole, an Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), the woman they stole from was one Mrs. Tokunbo.

He said the maid confessed that the woman has been very kind to her, adding that she usually bought clothes and gift items for her to take to her family in Benue State.

Cole said that the BDC operator gave the suspects N870, 000 as equivalent for $5,000. He said: “We also found N400, 000 in the maid’s bank account.

Investigation revealed that money and valuables gone missing in the house, but the woman didn’t suspect until the theft of foreign currency last week.”
