A housewife, identified as Fatimoh Olanrewaju, has been arrested by the Ogun State Police Command for allegedly breaking the arms and legs of her 5-year-old stepson, identified as Iyanu. The boy sustained injuries on his head.
According to PUNCH, the sad event occured on Thursday, August 11, 2016 at Onihale village along the old Abeokuta-Lagos Expressway.
Iyanu’s biological mother was said to have divorced Iyanu’s father in 2014.
According to neighbours, Fatimoh was fond of maltreating Iyanu ever since he began living with them since the divorce. They therefore decided to invite the police after the attack that left poor Iyanu with a broken arm and leg.
Iyanu has been admitted at the Federal Medical Centre, Idi Aba, Abeokuta.
The Ogun state acting Police Public Relations Officers, Abimbola Oyeyemi, has revealed that the suspect is in custody of the Anti-Human Trafficking Department of the Command.
