A couple in Nigeria, was arrested for burning their nephew as punishment for raping their daughter.

Atiku Yahaya and Farida Hamza are facing charges after they took the law into their own hands and carried out street justice against their teenage nephew.

The couple paid for a group of young men to abduct 17-year-old Ahmad Ibrahim.

When he was brought to their home in Sokoto, the couple locked the boy inside their bathroom, where they beat him.

After Ibrahim denied sexually abusing the couple’s 4-year-old daughter, they set his genitals on fire.

Commandant Babangida Abdullahi said that the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), arrested the couple shortly after the incident.

Abdullahi also said that the boy is recovering at a hospital.

Ahmad’s father, Ibrahim Abdullahi, who is the alleged victim’s uncle, has called for a harsh punishment for his attackers.
