I was at the Nativity Private School in the morning and saw this pupil being interrogated by her Teacher, upon enquiry, I was told her mother placed a hot pressing iron on her hand as a punishment for stealing a piece of meat from the pot. I am appealing to my good friend Atakpa U Benue who is one of the officers in charge Children Welfare to take appropriate action he wrote.
However, after the case was reported ,the Benue state government swung into action and took custody of the pupil. Later, the social media activist who reported the case took to his wall updating on the progress of the case and wrote;
I will visit the office tomorrow to furnish the details.Progress Report on Msuushima Ayila
On Monday, 15th July, 2019, we drew the attention of the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development over a child whose mother used Hot Pressing Iron to inflict burns on over allegation of the daughter picking meat from the pot.
The Ministry responded swiftly and the matter is being officially handled as the little girl is currently in the custody of Benue State Government.
We want to specially thank the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps who also sent a team from their Human Rights Office to follow the situation to a logical conclusion.
Meanwhile, the woman has been taken to Police Headquarters for further Investigation and Necessary Action.
Finally, we appreciate the cooperation of Management of Nativity Private School.
