The increasing rate of home abuse, wife battery, especially child molestation, maltreating, and abuse calls for serious and quick intervention by all.
Ola in a critical condition is said to be under a serious intensive care in a hospital around Igando area of Lagos. His step-mum who works with the Lagos Internal Revenue Service took laws into and hands and punished him for beating her little daughter by pouring hot water on him while asleep.
Read the story as it8217;s being said by the youngster; “the argument that led to the sad incident started when my step-mum saw me beat my sister, she got very angry and wanted to harm me back in anger, she reached for and did all she could physically, I tried to defend myself but she overpowered me.
She got more furious after my father and some neighbors tried to stop her, and she started scattering the house and even broke bottles.
My uncle who also lives around was able to drag her away from the house. I was still sleeping on my bed the next morning, when she walked into my room and bathed me with hot water; I staggered to the living room and saw my father and uncle. That was the last I remembered before I passed out and woke at the hospital.”
“The father said his brother came into the house around 4:30am the next morning to settle the rift that occurred the previous day; they all sat in the living room, when the wife stood up and went into the kitchen. She was going in and out, and they thought she was preparing herself for work, not until Ola walked out of the room, looking weak and skin peeled, and fainted on the ground. We quickly rushed him to the hospital, while she stood staring and mocking him for calling out for help.” His Uncle narrated
Meanwhile, the case has been reported at the police station, while the boy is still at the hospital wallowing in serious pain, and the step-mum has disappeared into thin air.
