Woman who said her raped 2-year-old daughter as 'ashawo' loses custody of her children, sent to rehabilitation home


The woman who beat up her 2-year-old daughter and called her a prostitute after she caught a man raping her daughter has been sent to a rehabilitation center for mentally challenged people by the Lagos government and her two children detached from her.


A statement released by the Lagos state government this morning, says the operation was administered by officials of the Ministry of Youth and Social Development after the video of the lady abusing her daughter was shared online by a resident of the state.

Explaining the measures taken by the Ministry which led to the rescue of the mother and two children, the Permanent Secretary, Mrs. Yewande Falugba stated that as soon because the Ministry became conscious of the incident, immediate action was embarked upon to rescue the children at Oniru beach, where they lived with their mother, on Sunday, 7th of June 2020, through a combined effort of the child Protection Unit of Ministry, police officers and also the reporter who initially challenged the lady at Idumota.

She said the 2 children believed to have been abused, were taken for checkup and treatment, adding that they're currently placed in one among the government-approved orphanages within the State for adequate care pending completion of investigations into the matter.

She added that the mother of the 2 children, who was discovered to be mentally imbalanced, has since been taken to the State-owned rehabilitation center for mentally challenged persons.
