A two-month-old baby’s arm had to be amputated after its callous father fractured it as punishment for disturbing his sleep.

According to his wife, the 31-year-old father beat his infant with a plastic clothes hanger for waking him up.

She told the BBC that her husband attacked the baby after taking her phone and locking the child in a room.

She claimed that he threatened her to keep quiet out of concern that she would notify their neighbors.

However, after realizing the baby’s arm had been broken, the mother called the police and reported the incident.

Imo state police in Nigeria have been urged to apprehend a suspect who is currently evading capture.

According to Dr. Chiedozie Mbalewe, he amputated the infant’s arm in order to save it.

The doctor stated that a foul smell was coming from the baby’s hand.

According to a UNICEF study on child abuse in Nigeria, 90% of children between the ages of 1 and 14 had at least one kind of harsh punishment from adults in 2021.

The National Bureau of Statistics reported that the Cross River and Imo states had the highest percentage of violent discipline at 99%.

In contrast to 71% of young women, 61% of young adult men reported physical abuse from a family member or caregiver when they were youngsters, according to a 2014 UNICEF survey.

A Nigerian dad was detained in August after being accused of stoning his two children to death.
