Blessing Goodluck, the mother, who on Thursday tortured her nine-year-old son, Kingsley, and dumped him at a filling station on Ijaiye Road in the Agbado area of Lagos, has been apprehended by the police.

Last week, Blessing had beat up the boy, whose body bore scars of lashes, for greeting a neighbour with whom she had grudges. She was said to have brought the boy from Ojuelegba, where they lived and dumped him at the station around 7am, after telling the child that she wanted to buy some items at a nearby shop.

Thankfully, good Samaritans found the boy, bought food for him and then took him to the Ijaiye Police Station around 11am.

PUNCH Metro gathered that the police had trailed the 23-year-old mother to Ojuelegba, where the son claimed they lived, without success. It was learnt that she was eventually traced to a residence on
Sule Babalola Street, Agbado.

The mother, who was 14 when she gave birth to her now nine-year-old son, admitted her action was wrong, said she was frustrated and described her son as being troublesome. She said:
“I have realised that I over-reacted. Kingsley is very stubborn and troublesome. He won’t sit at home. He will be jumping from one house to another. I was frustrated. I promise it will never happen again. I have learnt my lesson.”
A police source told PUNCH Metro that Blessing wept all night in custody. The source said Kingsley had also been counselled to turn a new leaf.

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Kenneth Nwosu, said Blessing was still under interrogation and would be charged to court afterwards. He said:
“This is a case of child abuse. The 23-year-old mother was arrested on Sule Babalola Street, Agbado. The boy was abandoned in a bad condition. He was treated at the Lagos State General Hospital, Ile Epo. The mother is under interrogation.”

Chai!  This world sef! Imagine the precious gift that God gave to someone who doesn't value it!
I don't think it it's right to engage children in malice.
