- Four foreign nationals have been picked up by the police for abusing their 'house boy'
- According to the Accra Police Command, the Nigerians are alleging their house help stole ¢5000
- The domestic help was rescued by some good samaritans in the neighborhood who heard him screaming for help
The Accra Regional Police Command is investigating four Nigerians who allegedly tortured their Ghanaian 'house boy' into vomiting blood.
The suspects reportedly subjected their domestic help to severe beatings on Tuesday, September 10 evening at a residence in East Legon.
A report by Joy News indicates that the victim’s head had increased to about twice its original size due to swells as a result of incessant hitting.
The victim was later rescued after a man named Shaibu Abubakar who heard him crying while being assaulted.
Shaibu explained that when he tried to gain access to the specific residence where the victim was being tortured, other Nigerian occupants of the house stopped him.
He said he even sustained bottle wounds in his palm after trying to battle his way through the Nigerians to rescue the victim.
Unable to do it alone, Shaibu said he mobilised some community members to overpower the Nigerian captors.
The mob forced their way into the house and rescued the victim.
“We heard the victim crying out saying ‘this evening they are going to bury me in a septic tank,” Shaibu is quoted as saying.
Meanwhile, the case is currently being handled by the Accra Regional Police Command, while the victim is also receiving medical attention.

The Akufo-Addo administration has not been without scandals since assuming office, with several cases of alleged corruption being levelled against some of his appointees.
