Woman burns boy's genitals after N100 goes missing

01 July 2016, 09:38

Abuja - Lagos State operatives have arrested a woman for allegedly setting her 7-year-old nephew's private parts alight, Punch reports.

The suspect, identified as Saratu, is reported to have burnt her nephew, Razak Qudus, over a stove after she accused him of stealing N100.

Following the reporting of the matter to police, Ebenezer Omejalile, a coordinator at the Child Protection Network, revealed that the boy was taken for a check-up at a hospital prior to the suspect's arrest.

“The woman brutalised the boy’s genitals. While we were at the police station, I also informed the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team, Alausa. I am sure justice will be done in this matter. The boy has been taken into government’s custody,” said Omejalile.

SP Dolapo Badmos, PR Officer for the Lagos State Police, has since confirmed the arrest, claiming that the suspect rubbed pepper on the victim's genitals before he was burnt on the stove, Daily Post reports.
