The sad tale of a boy, simply identified as Fawaz, who was allegedly brutalised by his aunt has gone viral on the internet.

The aunt, Rukayya had burnt Fawaz’s chest with a hot iron for allegedly stealing from her.

Aishat Alubankudi, who posted the details of the torture online, said that Rukayya brought the boy from Osun.

She said, “Rukayya or Mama Arafa brought her nephew from a village in Osun state, no school, no enjoyment and no rest of mind for Fawaz, a 10 years old boy.

“This is another recent act of her inhumanity, Mama Arafa pressed a hot iron on Fawaz’s chest over an allegation of theft. She lives in Naibawa, Kano.”

Alubankudi had also called for Rukayya’s arrest.
