A stepmother has allegedly used a hot pressing iron on the body of her young stepson.
Teachers of the boy noticed burns on his body when he went to school on Monday morning in the Army Day Secondary School, Calabar, Nigeria.
According to sources when the kid was quizzed by his teachers about the burns of his body, he blamed it on his stepmother.
The boy’s crime was just stealing boiled yam from a cooking pot to eat. The angry pregnant stepmother decided to punish him by using a hot pressing iron on him.
