A man was arrested and charged with assault after allegedly throwing his daughter off a building because he caught her with a boy, police in Nigeria said.

Lagos State Police said that they arrested Deji Kamoru, after being accused of throwing his daughter, 14-year-old Aishat, off the third floor of his house, which is located on Oroyinyin Street.

Aishat landed on the ground and hit her head on a metal object. She was rushed to a local hospital in critical condition.

Kamoru, a security guard, told police that his actions was justified because he caught his daughter with her boyfriend in his bedroom.

A judge released the father on bail so he can take care of his sick daughter and pay her medical bills.

“The most important thing now is to save the life of the child,” a police spokesperson said.

Aishat is recovering in an intensive care unit. She is unable to speak or recognize anyone.
