The Dad of a 10-year-old boy who was beaten with iron rod and wires by his step-mother for reportedly taking a N20 pap meant for her own daughter, has lost custody of his son.
Maria Mordi Gomes who disclosed that she got the boy’s dad and step-mother arrested and taken to a Human rights center in Lagos where they were detained, said that the beating the boy got was so much that his school teacher had to call her to come to the boy’s aid.
The father later signed to release the boy indefinitely to his own mother, who can be seen with her son in the picture, as it was also gathered that the boy has since left for Kwara to stay with his mum after he was fully treated at the Ikorodu general hospital, Lagos.
