Khadija Dauda has been detained by the police after she was arrested by the Kogi state government for allegedly pouring hot water on her 14-year old step-sister.
This was made known by the Kogi State Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Hajiya Fatima Kabir Buba, who stated that the suspect carried out the sad act after a misunderstanding with her step-sister.
The commissioner who described the incident as wicked and inhuman, further disclosed that the ministry will ensure they get justice for the 14-year old Zainab Dauda. She said;
“This is total wickedness. How would a sane person pour hot water on her fellow human being?
“The Kogi State Government won’t condole this brutality. We are going to follow this case to a logical conclusion and ensure that Zainab Dauda gets justice.”
Hajiya Fatima Kabir Buba added that the wife of the state governor, Hajiya Rasheedat Bello will leave no stone unturned to ensure that any individual engaging in child battering, molestation of the girl child, child trafficking and other heinous act will be made to face the full wrath of the law.
Khadija Dauda is currently being detained at the Police Force Headquarter, Lokoja and will be charged to court next week.
