Dad attacks son with hot knife, cutlass in Delta, lands in police custody
Policemen in Delta state have arrested a man, identified as Mr Wisdom, for allegedly using a hot knife and cutlass to injure his son in Jeddo, Delta.
Kelvin Ejumudo, a Facebook user who shared details of the incident on the platform, added that the suspect is currently being held at Orherokpe Police station.
He noted the boy, whose age cannot be ascertained as of the time of this report, has been rushed to a hospital in the area and undergoing treatment.
Ejumudo advised parents to learn not to vent their frustrations on their children because child abuse is a criminal offence and will not be taken lightly.
He wrote, "In another development, a young boy Efe Wisdom was beaten up by his father Mr Wisdom in Jeddo with hot knife and cutlass.
"Immediately we arrested the father and he's cooling off in Orerokpe police station and the young boy was given medications and handed over to his uncle in Jeddo.
"I want to thank the DPO Orerokpe Division, SP Ojo Oluwole, for his swift response to ensure the father was arrested.
"Dear fathers even if you no longer married to the mothers of these children, do not vent your frustrations and anger on them.
"Child abuse is a criminal offence and I condemn it in totality."
