2 Nigerian women, working as maids, allegedly killed by their employers in Saudi Arabia

Two Nigerian women have reportedly been killed by their employers in  Saudi  Arabia.

The women were allegedly trafficked to Saudi Arabia to work as maids in different households. They were both killed within a space of two weeks after being physically assaulted by their respective bosses.

According to  Satellite  Times, the first Nigerian girl to be murdered was by name Omotayo who until her death in June 2018 worked as a  migrant  domestic worker in  Riyadh . Before her death in June 2018, Omotayo sent photos of her battered  self  to a group she belonged to called Strong Nigerian Ladies – a solidarity group created by Nigerian migrant domestic workers in Saudi Arabia. She narrated to them the latest incident of battery in the hands of the Saudi  family  she worked for. She  opened  up to the group that she was being  owed   salaries  and made to eat leftover food and when she protested, she was beaten.

In the same month that she sent the message to the group, she died, allegedly in the hands of her employers.

Another Nigerian named Shola, was also allegedly killed by her boss in Saudi Arabia, according to Adeola Oladipo, another  housemaid  in the Strong  Nigeria  Ladies Group.

Adeola revealed that:
“Shola has been constantly assaulted and starved by her sponsor in Saudi Arabia. Whenever she demands for food they would always beat her up and she became so slim like somebody with HIV.

One day her male boss came as usual to beat her while she was doing chores in the kitchen. The beating became so severe she had to defend herself with a knife. In the process the knife cut her boss and her sponsor hit her on the neck and she collapsed. When the boss saw that Shola was dying, he rushed her to the hospital where he said she suddenly fell ill. A few days later, the Nigerian lady reportedly gave up the ghost in the hospital.” (Satellite Times)

    Платное образование в лучших вузах страны весьма недешево: иногда стоимость обучения зашкаливает за 200 тыс. руб. в год. Для тех, кто не может позволить себе потратить эту сумму, и были разработаны льготные образовательные кредиты с небывало низкой ставкой – 5% годовых. Такие кредиты выдают «Сбербанк» и банк «Союз». Кредит оформляется на лиц не моложе 14 лет. При этом не требуется ни страховки, ни залога, ни поручителей. Процент по кредиту составляет 1/4 ставки рефинансирования плюс 3% годовых, то есть 4, 94%. Остальные деньги будут выделены из государственной субсидии – в рамках эксперимента по государственной поддержке предоставления образовательных кредитов студентам образовательных учреждений высшего профессионального образования, имеющих государственную аккредитацию.

    Amazing blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?

    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..

    Any tips? Many thanks! http://antiibioticsland.com/Cephalexin.htm
