Woman Arrested For Assaulting Daughter Over Inability To Recite Numerals

A housewife, Bisola Anthony, who was on the run after allegedly using a stirring rod to assault her two-year-old daughter because of her inability to properly recite numerals, has been apprehended by the operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps attached to the Child Development Centre of the Ondo State Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development.

Punch Metro gathered that Bisola, while teaching the victim numerals around 8pm, on Tuesday, at her place of residence on Danjuma Street in the Akure South Local Government Area of Ondo State, allegedly beat the child with the stirring rod when she realised that the victim had failed to comprehend the lesson.

Punch correspondent learnt that the cry of the victim prompted neighbours to enter her parent’s apatment to plead with the mother, only to realise that the girl had sustained some injuries as her body was stained with blood.


A neighbour, Tope Boyede, who posted the news of the assault on his Facebook page, when contacted on the telephone by Punch Metro, condemned Bisola’s action, saying that the fact that the child could not comprehend what the mother was teaching her did not mean she should be assaulted to that extent.

Boyede, who said the father of the victim acknowledged that his wife was fond of beating their daughter, added that when child protection officers from the state Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development, visited the victim’s house to arrest her mother, Bisola ran away.

The civil servant said, “The victim’s mother and I live in the same compound on Danjuma Street. How we got to know about the child being molested was that when the mother was beating her with a stirring rod, because she could not recite the numerals from one to 200, the neighbour, whose room is close to that of the child’s parents, heard the girl crying.

“Neighbours tried to rescue the girl from the mother, but what they saw was very bad; there was blood on the victim’s body. Apparently, the mother was teaching her daughter the numerals but when the victim could not recite them, the mother started beating her with a stirring rod. The child is just around two year old and the fact that she could not comprehend what the mother was teaching her shouldn’t make the mother beat her to the extent of inflicting injuries on her.

“I still saw the mother this morning (Tuesday) before I went to report at the ministry. When I got there, the ministry released some officials, who accompanied me to the house to arrest her. But when we got home, she had already fled with her children. I believe she went out as usual, but the officials have assured us that she would be arrested.”

When contacted, the Director, Child Development, Ondo State Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development, Oluwaniyi Ogunleye, confirmed Bisola’s arrest, and the recovery of the child in a telephone conversation with our correspondent on Saturday.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
