A Facebook user, Wariebi Sapere-obi, shared a disturbing photo of a boy brought in dead to Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Yenagoa claiming that he died as a result of constant abuse by his father and stepmother. (The photo is too graphic for us to share.)
“Worst case of Child Abuse I have ever seen. This child was brought into CHEW (Children Emergency Ward) FMC, Yenagoa dead. what a father and his wife (victims step mum) could do to a child,” he wrote on Facebook.
Scars ( from cuts, bruises and burns) and fresh injuries were seen on the victim.
Sapere-Obi has promised to share more details later today.
