Mother Beats Her 7-Year-Old Child To Death in Nigeria.
Child molestation in Africa, especially West Africa, is a very serious problem.
In November 2017, UNICEF with support from the Government of Ghana launched the ‘Ghanaians Against Child Abuse’ (GACA) campaign.
The incident happened at the Agbarha community, Warri South council area of Delta State on last Monday night.
The police have arrested the mother and are processing her for court.
According to an eyewitness account, the child died after a severe beating by the mother.
The eyewitness explained that;
“The mother punished the boy by asking him to ‘ride a bike’ (sit in the air) but the boy was too hungry to do it. She became very angry and flogged him until he collapsed and died.”
Reacting to the development, the Delta State Police command confirmed the Mother had indeed beaten her 7-year-old child to death.
The police command also confirmed the arrest of the woman over the sad incident.
