Many Nigerians on social media are currently outraged on X after photos of a five-year-old boy who was allegedly assaulted by his aunt and her boyfriend in Port Harcourt, Rivers state were released online.
A counsellor shared a private message he received from someone whose child attends the same school as the victim and saw the assaulted child with his battered body.
He wrote: ”Good afternoon Sir.
Please help me post this. Who knows, we might save this boy from future abuse.
This post contains graphic contents.
I went to school this morning to drop my kids and I met my son’s class mate named Victory a 5 year old in basic 1. He and his elder brother who is in basic 4 are living with their father’s sister who is a nurse that owns a chemist shop here in Port Harcourt.
Their dad is living outside the country but sends her money for the children’s welfare.
Their aunt who should be in her 40’s, unmarried but living with her boyfriend of 30+ collaborated and unleashed this terror on this innocent boy claiming he spoilt something in the boyfriend’s car.
Please share to the right authorities. Let’s help save this innocent boy as this isn’t the first time they’re doing this to him.”
