A 10-year-old boy was allegedly beaten with an iron rod and wires by his step-mother for reportedly taking a N20 paper mint which was meant for her own daughter.
According to Maria Mordi Gomes, the constant beating of the boy was so much that his school teacher had to call her to come to the boy’s aid.
Maria revealed that she promptly visited the school to see the boy for herself as she got his father and step-mother arrested and taking to the Human rights center in Lagos where they were detained.
It was revealed that the father later signed to release the boy indefinitely to his own mother who can be seen with her son in the picture.
The boy has since left for Kwara to join his mum after he was fully treated at the Ikorodu general hospital, Lagos.
