National Human Rights Commission has gotten the babies belonging to a woman who battered and blamed her 2-year-old daughter after being raped.
This happened after a Nigerian mother ignited an outcry after being spotted in a viral video beating and calling her 2-year-old daughter an “ashawo”(prostitute) after being raped.
An eyewitness who shared the video on social media said the incident occurred in Idumota and the lady left her daughter with a bloodied eye after the incident.
When asked why she resorted to beating and blaming her daughter over the rape incident, the lady insisted that her child was at fault because she had been warned several times against going to the man. The man was however allowed to go scot-free.

“With the help of the courageous young lady who shot this video, we have gotten the babies; both the little girl and her brother.
“We will continue to update on this case.
“Nigerian children deserve better. We must sit up.”
