A medical doctor identified as Dr. Okeme has taken to Instagram to narrate on how a man in Kaduna burnt the palms of his daughter for stealing.
According to the doctor, the girl is just eight years old and her palms were already deteriorating when she was brought into their clinic.
They had to subject the girl to intensive medical treatment before he health could be stabilised.
An 8-year-old female child got her hands burnt by her single father who forced them over a burning flame because she was repeatedly being accused of pilfering.
She was brought to our facility with complains of pain, foul smell and inability to use hands. O/E she was febrile, and acutely ill. The palmer aspect of the hands, including regions over the thenar and hypothenar wey discharging of pus and a large ulcer with ragged edges with areas of hyperpigmented tissues obviously decaying were observed.
We debrided extensively under GA, dressed and covered her up with iv antibiotics. She is presently stable and recuperating.
This is actually evil and sick of any man to do to his daughter. The doctor, however did not mention if there has been any move to get the man arrested as he didn’t even disclose his identity
