A woman has lost custody of her two children to the Lagos State government after beaten up her 2-year-old daughter and blaming her for being raped.
A statement released by the state government this morning, stated that the rescue operation was carried out by officials of the Ministry of Youth and Social Development after the video of the woman abusing her daughter was shared online by a concerned citizen.
The woman’s two children who were believed to have been abused are currently placed in one of the government-approved orphanages in the State after undergoing medical examination and treatment. They are to remain at the orphanage home pending completion of investigations into the matter.
The woman who was discovered to be mentally imbalanced, has since been taken to the State-owned rehabilitation center for mentally challenged persons.
