A resident in Amondo village identified as Funmilayo Olalere has been arrested by the Osun State Government for allegedly using a broom to flog her grandson, making him lose one of his eyes.
According to reports, the grandchild lives with Mama Funmilayo popularly known as ”Iya Ibeji Olowo”. Recently, the child got her angry and in her bid to discipline him, she used a broom to flog him. Sadly, one of the broomsticks pierced into his eyes. However, instead of taking him to the hospital for treatment, she resorted to self-treatment and applied urine on the eye until it got damaged.
Concerned neighbours contacted the state authorities who traced the grandmother to her residence and got her arrested.
Confirming the incident, the state Commissioner for Women, Children and Social Affairs, Olubukola Olaboopo, said the aged woman will be taken to the Osun Women’s Clinic where she would undergo psychotherapy before she will be charged to court.
