A Facebook user and legal practitioner, Emeka Ugwuonye, has revealed how a little boy was brutally beaten by his mentally challenged father in Imo state, when the little boy came back home at night after playing with his friends.Emeka who made the disclosure after he received a mail by a woman about the case, revealed how the woman narrated the incident.Read below;“I am presently in my husband’s village, in Imo State. This morning I woke up to some noise at the gate, I went out , my husband and mother in law were outside. My mother in law was holding a little boy called Chinaecherem Ukomadu of between 5 to 7 years of age.“She called me to come closer and look at what the boy’s father did to him. (Find pictures below) According to people in the village the boy’s father is mentally unstable and the sister chased his wife away and collected the boy from her when the boy was just 4 months old.“She later came and dumped the boy sometime ago claiming the boy was too stubborn. According to the people, the boy has
been subjected to maltreatment of various forms, from going without food to sleeping outside to severe beating and what have you.“Last night when the boy had finished playing with the other kids, he went home but the father refused him entrance. He kept knocking then decided to go to one of the families around, he was ignored so he went back, the father then allowed him in, gave him the beating of his life and hit him with a rode on the mouth.“He was screaming and crying and bleeding. Of course again he slept in the cold outside, as at when I saw him, he had blood dried up all over his body. I could barely look at him without shivering.“The boy cannot go back to his insane father. We may say what of the mother but that I don’t know much about. Also, is there no law against such a thing. Can the law not force the father’s sister to take the father to a psychiatric hospital because that had been suggested but she refused and instead put a child under his care.“Also are there organizations that can take care of this child? I believe she tried to turn that child into a slave.
“Thank you Sir.”
