16 yrs old boy beaten to death by foster mum for stealing N50

The woman was stripped naked and made to carry the corpse of the dead boy around her area. The sad incident happened on Sunday on Amosu Street, Ijegun, in Lagos.
The woman known locally as Iya Anu beat her 16 year old foster son, Seubow, to death for allegedly stealing N50. Seybow was Iya Anu’s husband’s nephew.
According to neighbours, trouble started after Seubow lost the N1,000 given to him by Iya Anu to run an errand for her some days back. Angered by the loss which she claimed was theft, the woman refused to feed Seubow for over four days. When the teenager couldn’t take the hunger anymore, he sneaked out to buy gala one night. When Iya Anu found out, she accused him of stealing her N50 and beat him up, using a rod. She battered him for days until he gave the ghost on Sunday afternoon. After his death, neighbours rounded the woman up and made her carry the boy’s corpse to the police station. If only the neighbours had intervened earlier.
This wasn’t the first she would batter him. No one came to his rescue and he ended up dying in her hands. Sad!
