A housewife in Ogun State, Fatimoh Olanrewaju is in the net of Ogun State Police Command for allegedly breaking arms and legs of her 5-year-old stepson, Iyanu. She is in custody of the Anti-Human Trafficking Department of the Command.
The toddler is currently on admission at Federal Medical Centre, Idi Aba, Abeokuta. The biological mother of the victim was said to have divorced the father about two years ago, and the victim had been living with his stepmother and his father.
The stepmother was said to be in the habit of maltreating Iyanu. However, she attacked Iyanu recently which led to the fracture of his arm and leg. The situation was so pitiable that neighbours were forced to invite the police.
The acting state Police Public Relations, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident, as well as the arrest of the suspect.
