2 year old boy starved to death by his father and stepmother in Warri Rescued |
In Delta State, he rescued a two-year-old boy who was allegedly tortured and starved by his father and stepmother, IgbereTV reports.
The situation with the child was reported on the social network by the Facebook user Queen Oge. She shared photos of the babies on her page with a caption;
“Mr. Queen Oge Wall
This is Zino. A two-year-old who was abandoned by his biological mother with his biological father and stepmother at 113 Okumagba Avenue, Ojabugbe Junction on Deco Road, Warri, Delta State. Since then, the father and stepmother have subjected this child to all kinds of bullying and hunger. Please, I urge the Delta State government and all human rights activists to come to the aid of this child as his father and stepmother refused to feed him even when they refused to feed him. They lock him in a dark room and beat him when the neighbors help him. Now the neighbors are afraid to help, lest they kill him.
Please come to the aid of this child.

Abuse and neglect hit children hard, and abused children cannot defend their rights. Behind bars, other passionate Nigerians are always here to stand in a vacuum and represent their interests.
We are grateful to other human rights groups who have joined this intervention, Israel Joe CAHR and WARRI Aproko for using their platform to raise awareness.
Special thanks to our BARS INTERVENTION TEAM led by Ejirogene Abigail Loromeke.
