Pictures of a young girl said to be about eight years old who was brutalised by her own father for living her home to watch television in a neighbour’s room are currently making rounds

This was reported by one Olagunju Adekunle on Facebook. According to him, the incident happened in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

Adekunle’s words; “God, I can’t just believe this in my life, I was driving to the office this morning and I’ve reasons to make a call and before I know, I was out of call card. As I alighted from my car to get a recharge card, I sighted this small girl (Esther by name) who had reportedly been beaten mercilessly by her heartless and unreasonable father.

“I was so fortunate to interrogate her mother, who told me that the girl went to their neighbour’s room just to watch TV. “I took the girl to the nearby police station. On getting there, the girl and her mother were redirected to another police station which is very close to their house.”

Adekunle further stated that, he thought he could reason with the father, but  was surprised that instead the man threatened to beat his wife for cooperating with a stranger. “I called her father and I asked him why he beat the girl mercilessly like that, but his response was very disheartening. “He threatened to beat his wife afterwards.”
