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.”
