Woman burns boy with hot knife over missing N5,000

A – 40 – year old woman, Iswat Taofeek, residing at 36 Isoka Kugba area of Abeokuta, Ogun has been arrested by the Police for dehumanising a -12 – year old boy living with her.


Mrs Taofeek told the Police she suspected the boy stole the N5,000 she kept somewhere in her house.

The woman said she decided to put a knife on fire and when it was red hot, she used it to burn the boy all over the body, ostensibly to make him confess what he knows about the missing money.

She also told the police the little boy is her brother-in-law’s son and has been living with her for some time.

Ogun Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the suspect was arrested on Monday morning following a complaint by her neighbour, who brought the boy to the Adatan Police station with his body full of injuries inflicted on him with hot knife and cutlass.
