Boy tethered with animals for two years, lives on their food remnants

A horrendous case of child abuse has just been uncovered in Kebbi state, in northwest Nigeria: of a 10 year-old boy tethered in a pen with domestic animals for two years and who survived eating the food remnants left by the animals.

The abuse has been ranked as arguably the worst in Nigeria, a possible horror candidate in the Guinness Book of Records.

It was the story of how a supposed father and two wives gave the mother of all bestial treatment to a young boy, who lost his mother in the polygamous home.
The boy was eight years-old when he was thrown into the animal pen by his father. When he was found two years after, he had only a skeletal frame, drained of all the attributes of kids his age.
