Man Allegedly Cuts Off His Daughter’s Boobs For Growing Big.
The Lagos State Police Command has arrested a man named Adegboyega for allegedly brutalizing his eight-year-old daughter after she showed early signs of puberty.
The victim’s left breast was completely cut off by her father after he used a hot stone to massage his daughter’s breast to prevent it from growing, according to Ebenezer Omejalile, Chief Operating Officer of Advocates for Children and Vulnerable People’s Network.
The father, who attempted to blame his actions on his wife, was apprehended by the police last Friday, thanks to the intervention of the Advocates and the Inclusive Social Welfare Unit of the Ministry of Youth and Social Development, Ajegunle.
“This little girl was brutalised by her biological father who felt ‘how come she developed breasts so rapidly’.
“He turned himself into a medical doctor and heartlessly placed a stone in a fire and used it to massage her breast so that the breast would stop increasing in size.
“She was burnt on her left breast following the hot water massage from the father because he thinks the child is too young to develop breasts.
“The girl’s mother also complained of excessive beating for the same reason. Surprisingly the father is an engineer by profession, we engaged him in a conversation and he admitted to the crime.
“He tried to blame his wife for his negative actions; the most annoying aspect was when he claimed he bathes the 8-year-old (girl) every day.
“This is a red flag, the young girl is in serious pain. In addition, we discovered the left breast of Aishat was completely cut off as a result of the brutalisation by the father
“He was, however, arrested around 9.30 pm on Friday. He is currently in custody and will be charged to court on Monday.
“This is a positive outcome for us, it is a result of good partnership work from Inclusive Social Welfare, Ministry of Youth & Social Development, social welfare office, Ajegunle and the Ajegunle police station.”
