A woman who maltreated her 10-year-old nephew by burning him with a hot iron for alleged stealing has been arrested in Kano.
Operatives of the Kano State Police Command have arrested a young woman identified simply as Rukayya, for allegedly torturing her 10-year-old nephew, Fawaz.
A human rights activist, Aisha Alubankudi who reported the arrest of the suspect and also capturing the incident on video, said Rukayya had burnt the young boy's chest with a hot iron for allegedly stealing from her.
Alubankudi said Rukayya brought the boy from his village in Osun State to live with her family but has been maltreating him on a regular basis till she went as far as using the hot iron on him.
“Rukayya or Mama Arafa brought her nephew from a village in Osun State; no school, no enjoyment and no rest of mind for Fawaz, a 10-year-old boy.
This is another recent act of her inhumanity. Mama Arafa pressed a hot iron on Fawaz’s chest over an allegation of theft. She lives in Naibawa, Kano.”
Alubankudi added that Rukayya would soon be charged to a court after the police must have concluded their investigation.
