A pregnant woman severely beat her housemaid until she died because she did not clean good enough, according to police in Nigeria.

Okota police said that they have arrested the woman identified only as Obiageli, after being accused of killing 8-year-old old Miracle.

Obiageli is facing charges of assault and murder.

According to the police investigation, Obiageli hired Miracle and 12-year-old Chinacherem, and ordered them to do all her housework.

Neighbors told police that Obiageli woke up the girl as early as 4:00 a.m., to begin their work. Obiageli was not happy with the way Miracle was doing her work, and she often beat her.

On Saturday, Obiageli fatally beat Miracle, because she was unhappy with the way the house was cleaned. After Obiageli realized that Miracle died, she plotted with some neighbors to dispose the body.

She told the neighbors that Chinacherem was the one who beat Miracle to death during a fight. One of the neighbors called police, and officers arrested the woman as she was carrying the dead body out of her home.

Chinacherem’s family members quickly arrived at the scene and took her away before the Lagos State Office of the Public Defender could interview her.
