Coming after one 10 year-old boy, Jibril Aliyu, was found tethered to an animal pen in Kebbi, Nigerians have called for the stiffest punishment and arrest of his father and step mothers.
Aliyu was found by human rights activists and to their surprise he had been given this bestial treatment for two years, after his mother died.
His father and two step mothers cast him with domestic animals, starved him, such that to survive, Aliyu lived on the left-over food by the animals.
Although Aliyu’s father and step mothers have been arrested by the police, Nigerians who read thestory, have called for the stiffest punishment for them.
See some reactions below…
“The most annoying thing is some useless lawyers will stand for this culprits in court. Forget section 36(6) or principle of natural justice and fair hearing. This people deserve to convicted, even if they plead not guilty, the Judge should record it as guilty.”
“The worst child abuse of our time.. This is a story of a boy called Jibril Aliyu, who hails from Badariya Area of Birnin Kebbi, Kebbi State. He was chained alongside animals by his 2 stepmother for 2 years.”
“This is disheartening. The parents reminds me of Ramsey Bolton”
“even the neighbors should be arrested, how can a child be treated like this for 2years and people wont know? 2 years fah? everybody that knows those wicked parents of his should be arrested.”
