The police have nabbed an Ikwa Abom native who allegedly brutalized his stepson and burned him with a hot knife over N60 (which is almost ₵1.00) change.
It was gathered that the suspect subjected the lad to torture during his mother’s absence last week.
According to a neighbour, who spoke to activists and coordinators of human rights group, Talakwa Parliament, the suspect allegedly assaulted the boy and burned his body with a hot knife claiming he stole N60 to buy groundnut and sugar which he used to drink Garri.
Recall that the suspect had run away from home after neighbors raised an alarm. He has now been arrested, according to reports.
