A boy known as Ezekiel Kuti who lives with his father and step mother in lagos, was badly burnt on the face by his step mother using a hot electronic iron.
A twitter user took to his page to narrate how Ezekiel was maltreated by his step mother. He shared a picture and a short video on how disfigured the boy’s face is, and also how the incident happened.
According to the boy, on the 5th of June, he spilled a gallon of groundnut oil and because of how scared of being scolded he was, he decided to fill the gallon with water.
His step mother got angry with him when she noticed what he did, and burnt his face with hot electronic iron in the presence of his father, but his father did not say anything; even though he witnessed the incident. When asked if he was taken to hospital for treatment, he said no, that he was the one treating himself.
The twitter user @opomulero-007 calls out to NGOs and government agencies to help Ezekiel Kuti from his wicked step mother, who burnt his face with an electronic iron, and also his father, that could not do anything after witnessing the incident.
