A boy was jailed for 5 months after he was accused of killing his mother’s chicken, police in Nigeria said.

Kano State Police said that the 14-year-old boy, who was not identified, had a dispute with his mother at their home after she found the dead chicken.

The mother dragged him to the police station and filed a complaint against her son. So far, the boy spent five months at a youth detention center.

The attorney of the child filed a complaint, stating that the condition of the detention center is deplorable and the children are not being fed.

However, the management of the youth detention center denied the allegations, saying that the detainees are all well fed.
