A viral video showing a woman said to be from Nigeria flogging a boy, after which she locked him in a cage with fierce dogs, has generated outrage on Twitter and people are calling for her to be found and punished.
In the viral video, the woman is seen flogging the boy with a belt. She refused to stop even as the boy pleaded for mercy.
“You think I’m joking with you, ehn? You think you have power,” she asked as she flogged the boy.
“Enter inside. Let me here pim,” she said as she slapped the boy a few times then kicked him into the dog cage as he tried to resist. She added: “Enter inside there.”
As soon as the boy was inside the cage, the woman locked him in and walked away.
Twitter users are calling out the woman for child abuse. They are asking for help in identifying the woman and the boy so that justice can be served.
The sad event is said to have taken place at Nsukka; a small town in Nigeria.
The boy is also reported to have been saved after 3 days in the cage.
