All 16-year-old Kafayat Bello, a year two senior student of a school in Bariga in Lagos, wanted was to be a normal girl who could sneak out to play with friends once in a while. But what she did not expect was the kind of brutal punishment she would later get from her father, a commercial bus driver.

On Tuesday, May 2, 2015, Kafayat’s father, Ibrahim, pounced on her and whipped her till she could not walk. Not done, he plugged their pressing iron and burnt her multiple times, inflicting severe injuries all over her body.

Kafayat, whose case has been taken over by the Office of the Public Defender under the Lagos State
Ministry of Justice, explained that on the day of the incident, she was given the duty of attending to a client who needed manicure and pedicure in her mother’s beauty parlour.
“When I finished attending to the customer, I left the shop to play with some of my friends. When I got back, my mother asked where I was and told me she would report me to my father. When I got home and my mother told my father what I did, he started to beat me very hard and he then went off to plug a pressing iron, which he used to burn me all over my body,” the girl said.

Saturday PUNCH reports that when the brutal action of the father became too scary for Kafayat’s mother who stood by as her husband punished their daughter, she rushed out to call neighbours for help, who later came in to restrain him against further damage to the girl’s body.

OPD officials who handled the case said Ibrahim locked up her daughter after the incident and warned her not to go out until the injuries healed so that no one would know what happened.
“But when her classmates came looking for her from school they told her she had missed some tests. In order not to miss more tests, she rushed to school on Thursday, two days after she sustained the injuries. When she got to school, that was when we discovered the extensive injuries,” a school official who reported the case said.
As soon as the case was reported, Ibrahim was arrested and OPD took over the case. Punch says they counted at least 15 visible spots on the body of the girl where she sustained severe injuries from her face down to her thighs.
