Police arrested nursing mother  for setting 10-year-old ablaze


A nursing mother Gift Igwe,  has been arrested by policemen from the Igbogbo division, for setting her husband’s brother ablaze at her home at Adenugba Street, Agunfoye, Ikorodu Lagos.
The 10-year-old victim, identified as Chimobi from Ishielu, Ebonyi State was set ablaze because he misplaced his trousers.

Chimobi was rushed to the Ikorodu General Hospital, Ikorodu by residents who heard his cry and has been taken into protective custody by the Lagos State Government.

According to Punch, the victim who was brought to the house by his brother had been maltreated severally by Gift.

The victim currently receiving treatment at the hospital, said, ‘’I misplaced my trousers and ‘mummy’ (sister-in-law) poured kerosene on me and used a matchstick to light fire. People came to help me. I have not been going to school since they brought me from the village.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, Olarinde Famous-Cole, confirmed the incident, adding that Gift had been granted bail because she is still nursing a young child.

Olarinde said she was mandated to report at the police station daily, while the case is being investigated.

However the Director of the OPD, Mrs Olubukola Salami, confirmed that little Chimobi has been taken into protective custody by Lagos State.
