Samuel was rushed to the hospital, where she is still receiving treatment.

While narrating her ordeal, Samuel said: “Esther called me from where I was learning tailoring to come and collect the palm oil her husband is owing me. I also work as a labourer for her husband and some other farmers in the town.
