A father, Alhaji Kasali Mumuni, has been arrested for burning two of his children’s stomach with red hot knife for stealing in Owo, Ondo State.
The 41-year-old father from hell, Vanguard reported burnt his 9-year-old daughter, Maryam and 6-year-old son, Ojonla’s stomach with red hot knife, after his wife who happens to be the children’s step-mum told him they stole the only fish in the pot meant for him.
The report said the suspect has thrice been married but non of his ex-wives lived with him more than three years before he sent them packing with their children.
His present wife bore him no child. She reportedly lied against the victims.
The paper said Ojonla took half of the fish in the pot and, when their step- mother returned from where she sells herbs in one of the motor parks in Owo, she ate the remaining half.
But she told the suspect it was the children who ate the fish when he returned home.
“When the knife was hot and turned red, he pressed it on our stomachs one after the other. We cried and begged but our father refused to remove the knife,” Maryam told the paper.
