A married woman, Amina Yakubu, (pictured above) has been arrested for allegedly torturing her four year old step son.
Amina, who resides in Kaduna, with her husband Yakubu Yusuf, was accused of constantly beating the boy and scalding him with a pressing iron.
Premium Times, reports that the victim, Al-amin Yakubu, was brought to live with the suspect, by his father Yakubu Yusuf. Yusuf, was previously married to the boys’ mother before divorcing her.
A neighbour, who spoke on condition of anonymity said:
“She beats the little boy to pulp every day and pours cold water on him. We even thought she had some kind of mental problem because pupils in the nursery where she teaches also suffer from her frequent beatings.”
When confronted about the situation, at Mando police outpost, Kawo Division, the suspect claimed the boy had been bitten by a dog. However, Rabi Salisu, who is in charge of ‘Arrida Relief Foundation’ which caters for victims of torture and rape, dismissed her claim by saying;
“If she says a dog attacked Al-Amin, then how come, the dog did not attack her biological daughter who is about the age of Al-Amin?”
Meanwhile, he called on the state government to help fight against cases of torture and rape, as it is becoming rampant in our society.
When the issue was brought to the notice of Yusuf, he said;
“I never noticed that she always subjected Al-Amin to this inhuman act until now because I only return home in the night after I leave for work in the morning.”
A police spokesperson, Further stated that investigations would be carried out and the public would be informed about their findings.
