I saw this story last week on Facebook and I did not post it then because I wanted to get a go-ahead from the owner of the page on which I found it. She has not gotten back to me but I cannot remain silent on this because maltreating children within one's care seems to be a frightening but growing trend in Nigeria. Domestic violence in any form should cease in Nigeria and around the world. The trauma is often unending for the victims.

Viewer discretion advised from this point. :(
How can a human do this to another, least of all to a child? What could this poor child have done to deserve such barbaric treatment from one who should have been watching over her? I learnt the Governor's wife has paid 12-year-old Zaliha a visit and I really hope they would help her fight for justice. Perhaps people's brains would be reset to normalcy when they realise that you cannot get away with domestic violence anymore
I pray the poor child gets justice and succour.
