A woman identified simply as Iya Anu who resides at 8, Amosu Street, Ijegun, Lagos, allegedly beat her foster son, Seubow, to death for allegedly stealing N50.
It all started when Seubow misplaced a N1, 000 note given to him for an errand.
She has starved the teenager throughout Saturday. When he could no longer bear the hunger, he sneaked out of the house at night to buy Gala.
When Iya Anu got to know about it, she became furious, accused him of stealing her N50 and gave the teenager the beating of his life.
It was gathered that she began to beat him on Saturday night. The beating continued till he gave up the ghost about noon. When she realised that the boy had lost consciousness, she cried for help but it was already late.
This is crying over split milk..in this age and time where many will do anything to have a child, someone somewhere feels she needs to edge her child out of existence...May God have mercy on us all
