READ JUNAID STATEMENT:
It is heartbreaking and annoying how parents nowadays treat their own child, this thirteen years old child was denied any form of parental support and shelter simply because his mother was divorced. He was forced to sleeps in Verandah beside a gutter without foods, clothes, talk less net to protect him from malaria and other diseases. Mallam Murtala from mobbar LGA now living in Baga road Maiduguri confessed that he and his wives had thrown the child and serves him food once daily, during investigation by management of National Human Rights Commission lead by Barr Jummai Mshelia accompanied by E-D WINN Madame Lucy Diama. It was gather that the child(Aminu) step mothers always beat him without a reason, when Aminu was served food (Spaghetti and Stew) to be precise. He ate like a hungry lion it is disheartening and heart breaking seeing this child eating empty Spaghetti without touching the stew, an indication that he had not seen stew for long. All this because his mother is not in the house after documentation, Barr Jummai lead team will take the child for more medical support. Relevant stakeholders must take action on this increasing menace that is consuming us. Child abuse needs to be tackled in that country.
