National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons and other related offences, NAPTIP, has arrested a couple for allegedly burning the private part of their two-year-old son in the Kuje area of Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.

The couple, Ayo, 43 and 30-year-old Khadijat Yahaya, were nabbed by the NAPTIP Rapid Response Squad in the early hours of Saturday after a tip-off, Punch reports.

The two-year-old who was usually starved was brutalised by Khadijat, his step mother, after he sneaked into the kitchen to eat one of the wraps of moin-moin (beans cake) left in a pot.

The little boy allegedly had his hands, buttocks and genitals burnt by his stepmother, who reportedly connived with her husband.

The couple were thereafter arrested and detained in the agency’s cell in Abuja.

NAPTIP Head, Press and Public Relations, Josiah Emerole, who confirmed the arrest, said the agency would charge the couple to court after the holidays.

“The boy had faced maltreatment, including starvation, since the father forcefully took him away from his biological mother. The little boy was starved from morning till 2pm on that day and he crawled to the kitchen where he saw some wraps of moin-moin and decided to help himself to one of them.

“For that offence, the woman grabbed the little boy, held his hands and dipped them in boiling water. She also burnt his genitals. The boy’s screams attracted neighbours who came to his rescue, while one of them reported the matter to us.

“He has gone through a successful surgery at a specialist hospital in Abuja through the support of some good samaritans”, the spokesman added.
