Mum tortures and abandons son for greeting neighbour

A nine-year-old boy, identified only as Kingsley, was on Thursday abandoned at a filling station at Adetola bus stop on Ijaiye Road, Agbado, Lagos State, by his mother identified as Blessing.

She allegedly tortured him for greeting a neighbour and brought him from Ojuelegba, where they live and dumped him at the station around 7am.

Blessing left the area after telling the child that she wanted to buy some items at a nearby shop.

Some people later bought food for Kinglsey before he was taken to the Ijaiye Police Station around 11am.

His body was full of scars for which he held his mother responsible.

"Mummy beat me because I greeted our neighbour. She and the neighbour are quarrelling and she warned me not to greet her. She beat me with a stick when she saw me with the woman," Kingsley said.



He said had been a victim of malnutrition and abuse since his parents divorced.

"My mother and I moved to Lagos from Calabar (Cross River State) after she divorced my daddy.

"I live in Ojuelegba with her and my stepfather, Jonathan. She beats me every day.

"She will give me lashes for not waking up early to do domestic chores. At times, she won't give me food to punish me."

The Supervisor of the filling station, Adeola Olufunwa, said she was nearly detained at the station on the matter.

She said, "I was the one who noticed the boy's presence around us and I alerted my colleagues.

"But funny enough, the police wanted to detain me for a case I knew nothing about."
