Mrs. Sheriff Ayo of 24, Sobodun Street, Orile Iganmu, Lagos has been arraigned at the Ikeja magistrate court for giving her daughter second degree burn over the paltry sum of N200. Happenings gathered that the woman was charged for unlawfully assaulting her 16year old daughter.
She burned the upper and lower part of her right limbs, causing her serious bodily harm. According to sources, the industrious teenage girl, Aisha aside helping her mother at home, is an auxiliary nurse who contributes to the family welfare through her struggles.
A source went further to say, “The woman is just being wicked, even the reason she burnt this young girl’s arm with a hot iron was uncalled for, the N200 in question belonged to Aishat’s boss at work before she collected it from her”.
Happenings also gathered that the young girl’s boss had given her N500 to disburse to colleagues at work with the aim of keeping N200 for an errand the next day. However Aisha’s mum, who had no money, stole from the young girl, trouble ensued when Aishat’s boss put a call through to her mum with a view to confirming the truth about the missing money, although she lied about seeing the missing N200.
Embarrassed about being questioned over the paltry sum she had stolen, the wicked woman, livid with anger, plugged an electric iron and burned her daughter.
Neighbours who heard about her cruelty, immediately contacted the Human Rights Office in Alausa, Ikeja and the Child Orphanage Home in Orile was informed and they rescued the brutalized young girl who has been serially abused by her mother Sherif Aishat.
The young girl at the moment is still in the hospital undergoing treatment for the burns sustained on her upper and lower limbs at an undisclosed hospital.
The magistrate Mrs. Sule Amzat in her ruling in court, deferred the matter till the medical report is presented to the court.
