A Nigerian man (33) poured boiling water on his 14-year-old daughter’s private parts for licking soup in the pot. The incident happened in Ikorodu area of , Southwest Nigeria.
The girl (name withheld) is currently undergoing treatment at a government hospital while the father, Solarin Muyiwa has been arrested by the Social Welfare Department of the Ministry of Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, WAPA, and will be arraigned in court soon.
She sustained deep wounds on her body.
The girl said she was given N50 for the day and that she wanted to test if the soup was hot or not.
The father first beat her with a wooden stick and told her stepmother to heat some water when the wife reported to him that he caught the girl stealing from the soup pot. It was that hot water he poured into a plastic and ordered her to put her hands inside.
His wife also confirmed that he asked her to boil the water and after that, he asked the girl to put her hands inside the water, but she said at that juncture, her baby was crying and she had to go and nurse her baby and she didn’t know what transpired.
