Woman arrested for maltreating a child

The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a 32-year-old woman who was captured maltreating a female child in a viral video in Nigeria.

Before her arrest, an X.com user had shared the video asking for help rescuing a female child who was being maltreated.

A voice in the video condemned the treatment as “dehumanising” and appealed to the Lagos State Government for intervention. The voice said, “Mummy Mariam, this is bad. It is dehumanising.  You can’t treat this girl like this.”

“I am giving the Lagos State Government this video, this is dehumanising.”

According to Hundeyin, the suspect was arrested by officers from the Oke-odo Division on Tuesday.

The child has been placed in the care of the Lagos State Ministry of Youth and Social Development for proper care and shelter.
