The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Oyo State Command, has arrested a couple for torturing their 10-year-old child in Ibadan, Nigeria.

Olawale Taofeek, a carpenter who lives at Ibadan and his wife, Romoke, jointly tortured their daughter, Abibat, by tying her hand to a ceiling and putting fire under her till she confessed to an allegation of theft.


Mr Olawale alleged that Abibat took N3,000 from the house and the money, according to him, belongs to another resident of the community.

It was gathered that during a search, N600 was found in Abibat’s bag and that she later brought the remaining N2,400 from where it was hidden in the house after she could not bear the torture.

Abibat is currently receiving treatment at a local hospital following the bruises and scaling of her skin.
