45-year-old Sukurat Idowu, a roadside mechanic, is currently being held at the Ikotun police division for brutalizing his own child.
According to reports, 5-year-old Monsurat had been sent by her father to dispose the contents of a potty in the nearby latrine, but she had fallen into a gutter instead.
This reportedly got her father angry, and he proceeded to beat her up with what a neighbour who witnessed the incident said was hot iron.
Sukurat is said to have been separated from Monsurat’s mother for over three years, and while efforts are being put into tracing her, Monsurat is receiving treatment at a hospital.
