Police have arrested the father who reportedly kept his children in chains, broke one of the children’s fingers with a hammer and poured salt in their bleeding wounds.
The Police in Okigwe local government have arrested the man who broke his two children’s bones and tortured them for their ‘mother’s sins.’
A video of the incident which was first posted by the National Human Right Commission (NHRC) on their social media page, showed the father, pouring pepper and salt on the children’s wounds as they sat crying outside a shop.
“The perpetrator said he was doing it to punish the children for ‘what their mother did’”, the NHRC tweeted.
