Mrs. Toyin Abiodun lives with her four children in a one-room apartment at Number 24, Adekunle Street, Akute- Odo , Ogun State. In the same room where she sleeps, she also cook, eats and wash her clothes and dishes. She and her four children also defecate and have their bath in the same room.
Woman who cooks, washes, bathes and defecates in a single room which she shares with her four young children has been accused of brutally assaulting them. According to the report by the The Nation, Mrs Toyin Abiodun always discipline her children with knife, cutlass, belt or iron. The boy pictured at the right is her first son and you can see all the marks on his head and face, and his already dislocated arm ..
According to her co-tenants, Toyin abuses her children by locking them up and using cutlass, knife and belt to beat them. Evidence of this is on their bodies. Their heads and bodies are full of scars while their hands are dislocated.The eldest of the kids , Dejitade,11, in Z I Primary School , Akute School Two!
According to the kids, their mom usually give them caps to cover their heads in order to stop other people from seeing the scars.
The other girl has a strange big Bob Marley strands of over 500 woven on her head to cover the scars on her head. The hair looked weird as it is too heavy for such a small girl of four!
However, at school the first born is said to have been affected psychologically as he does not know how to identify numbers and cannot identify any of the alphabets. Another teacher said "these children’s bodies are full of scars, the first born Dejitade is about 11years old but he said he is nine, he is in Primary Two. He does not speak properly while his hands have broken as he has dislocation. How can an 11-year-old boy be in Primary Two and still does not speak properly? I believe this has affected his brain."
Emmanuel said he is in KG Two, he said his mother used to beat them with cutlass, belts , sticks and knives.
Dejitade said his mother uses stick, cutlass, and knife to beat them. He said it is true that she maltreats them always. He said she does not care. "She would put knife in the fire and use it to cut our body."
Her four kids are in a terrible condition as their bodies are full of scars. The head of the first born is full of scars, while their bodies are full of sores and scars as well, Thats the main reason why the first born usually wear a cap like the fabled Alade in Yoruba folktales
Some Asked why she use to beat the children, she denied all and claimed that the belt she was holding was just to discipline them. She said "the scars on them had been there for a long time.
The first born had all those marks as a result of the beatings he had when he was with my brother in law in Lagos Island.” Asked about the second one with scars and dislocation, she could not say a word but insisted that her enemies had sent the reporter to her.
When the interrogations continued she confessed that she has been to the Welfare office. She then called a number to inform the woman who spoke with this reporter.
