A factory worker is currently cooling her heels in a detention facility of the Lagos State Police Command after allegedly using hot electric iron to press her teenage daughter's legs.
The operatives of Nigerian Police from the Lagos State Police Command, have arrested factory worker identified as Mrs. Ayo Sheriff, after she allegedly inflicting serious injuries on her daughter, Aishat.
According to a report by PUNCH Metro, the 30-year-old suspect reportedly plugged an electric iron and pressed the hot surface on the body of the 16-year-old, injuring her in the two legs.
It was gathered that the offence of the teenager was that she lied that her mother was with the sum of N250 which she (Aishat) was supposed to give to her (Aishat) boss.
The case was said to have been reported at the gender section of the police command headquarters, Ikeja, which arrested the suspect.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chike Oti, said the incident happened on Tuesday, April 24, 2018.
He said, “The Lagos State Police Command is investigating a case of child abuse reported by Chosen Child Orphanage Home, located on Gastya Estate, Ijora Badia on behalf of Aishat Sheriff, a 16-year-old girl child whose upper and lower right limbs were allegedly burnt by her biological mother, Ayo Sheriff, with an electric iron after a minor misunderstanding.
“The victim, who is a pupil of a secondary school and a part-time student nurse, was given N500 by her boss with an instruction to give someone N200 on her way home, use N50 as her transport fare and return the balance of N250 the next day.
“However, on the day she was supposed to return the balance, she defaulted. She told her boss that the money was with her mother. The boss called her mother on the telephone and the mother denied knowledge of the money.
“When the victim returned home from work, her mother, who was already waiting for her, plugged an electric iron and waited until it was hot. She used the hot iron to welcome her daughter home, accusing her of being a disgrace to the family.”
