A mother was arrested on charges of child abuse after striping her young stepdaughter and locking her inside a room for several hours, police in Nigeria said.
Ogun State Police said that they arrested 28-year-old Christiana Faturoti, after being accused of tying up her 2-year-old stepdaughter because she soiled herself.
According to the police investigation, Faturoti locked the child’s room and left for work. For over two hours, the girl cried in pain until a neighbor heard her and found her in the locked room.
The neighbor quickly alerted the police, who came and rescued Lovelyn William. Faturoti was arrested and is being held by the police for questioning.
Police said that William’s birth mother is currently in a psychiatric hospital after falling ill. The child’s father, 37-year-old Christopher William, met William on Facebook, after which they began a relationship.
The father of the child was not arrested.
