Barber arrested for beating four-year-old son to coma

Police in Lagos have arrested a barber for brutalising his four-year-old son, leaving him with several bodily scars.

Tunde was reported to have gotten angry with Ezekiel because he excreted on himself.

According to their neighbors, Ezekiel’s mum and Tunde were married for a few years until she left him over constant acts of domestic violence. She initially left with Ezekiel but later returned him to his father who had already remarried.

A neighbor told The Nation that Ezekiel was always being maltreated by Tunde and his new wife.
