Men of Ogun State Police Command have arrested a housewife, Fatimoh Olanrewaju, for allegedly breaking the   arms and legs of her five -year -old stepson.

The woman, who lives at Onihale village, along old Abeokuta-Lagos expressway, was said to be fond of   maltreating the boy.

Sunday Vanguard gathered that the boy, Iyanu Olanrewaju, has been taken to the  Federal Medical Centre, Idi-Aba,  Abeokuta for treatment.

The suspect, it was learnt, is in  custody of the Anti-Human Trafficking Department of the state Police   Command.

Further findings revealed that the   mother of the victim   had divorced   the father , Idowu   Olanrewaju, about     two years ago,but, the   child   was   living with his father and stepmother.

When our correspondent visited the village,   the   residents said the stepmother was fond of  maltreating the child ,and had ignored efforts to stop her from doing so.

It was learnt that the   last straw that broke the   camel’s back was the recent attack on the child,   which resulted in the fracture of the arms and legs, prompting neighbours   to invite the police.

An eyewitness told our correspondent that   the boy was initially taken to General Hospital, Ifo, but the management had to roofer him to  the Federal Medical Centre, Abeokuta as a result of the high degree of injuries.
