15-year-old Abdulgafar Ajenifuja, has described how his mother inflicted a gash on his head after he failed to do some household chores at their home in Ikorodu Ajenifuja Alejo street.
According to the teenager, his mother Mojisola Jaqueen Ajenifuja gave him a deep cut on his head last Friday after she ordered him to wash plates but he told her to give him more time to study for the exam practical he will be having the next day.
Gafar Ajenifuja who is an SS1 student at Homat school Ikorodu, said his mum’s behavior towards him and his younger ones is absurd, She treats them like she is not their biological mother. He said:
“I managed to escape after the cut, I ran down stairs to call on the neighbors for help and told them to take me to my big daddy’s house were I was treated fast because his house is very close to my father’s family house that I m living in with my mother and younger ones.”
A family member added: “Moji is a threat to the family and the children, even neighbors too. She fights with everybody. We the family have told her to leave severally because of her cruel behavior towards the children and everyone”
He also said that before the incident some neighbors had monitored her behaviour for long and reported her to the Ikorodu Ojogbe children welfare office. They accused her of being a bad mother and the children were taken away from her by the welfare officie. However, a few weeks later, she regained access to them and brought them back home.
A concerned neighbour said: “Iya Gafar is a mad woman. She is a disgrace to motherhood. The society should not allow this type of a woman to be responsible with a child. A who can fight the whole members of her husband family and force them to leave their father’s house is capable of doing anything to the children and force them out of their fathers house too.”
15-year-old Gafar cried to the press on Saturday and showed the scars of his mother’s beatings all over him and said that it is the same with his younger ones.
He pleaded saying: “please take me away from my mother before she kill me. I was very brilliant before now and I was a happy with my father’s family members around me but now they are far away because of my mother.”
