Police Nab Woman Who stamped hot iron on 5-yr-old stepdaughter’s private part for bedwetting

A teenage housewife has been arrested by the Adamawa State Police Command for allegedly exerting a hot pressing iron around the private part of her stepdaughter.

The police said the housewife, 18-year-old Aisha Mohammed, did this to her five-year-old stepdaughter because the minor urinated in her bed.

Aisha Muhammed, who is a resident of Wuro Patuji, a village in Mubi South Local

Government Area in northern Adamawa, allegedly took what has been described as a wicked advantage on the stepdaughter who lives in the house after her own mother left her father due to divorce.

“Investigation reveals that the suspect, being the second wife to the victim’s father, committed the offence by using a hot iron, tortured and inflicted injury on the private part of the baby,” the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Suleiman Nguroje, said in a statement passed to newsmen.

He added that Aisha was arrested by the police following a report received from Aisha Abdullahi, mother of the victim, and Barrister Khadija Nasir, a female lawyer and FIDA member.

He said the Commissioner of Police, CP Aliyu Adamu Alhaji, commended FIDA and police operatives who ensured that Aisha did not carry out the act without being brought before the law.

“The police commissioner has directed discreet investigation and subsequent prosecution as the victim continues to receive medical attention,” Nguroje stated.

He advised members of the public to shun impunity and be kind to even people who may not be under their care.
