Woman to be prosecuted for burning daughter’s mouth

The Niger Child Rights Protection Agency is to charge a 30-year-old mother of three, Bilkisu Suleiman, to court for burning her nine-year-old daughter’s mouth with firewood.
The Director-General of the agency, Hajiya Mairam Kolo, said on Friday that the case was reported to the agency by the Headmaster of the victim’s school, Malam Musa Garba.
Kolo said the victim’s teacher had reported the matter to the school authority after seeing the girl’s burnt mouth.
She said the accused was reported to have stopped the victim from attending school and sending her to hawk on several occasions.
Kolo said the accused would be charged under Section 26 of Child Right Law for neglect, ill treatment and abandonment and exposure to risk of burning.She said Section 26 of the State Child Right Law attracts a fine of N5,000, or a term of two months’ imprisonment.
The director-general, decried the attitude of parents who sent their children to hawk in order to make ends meet.
She said hawking exposes children to rape and other abuses.
Kolo said the agency would continue to protect the rights of children and bring justice to the vulnerable.
