According to one Nwogu Davina who shared the post on a Facebook page, the boy was allegedly forced by hunger since he had nothing to eat the whole day and took his mother's money to buy food but that did not go down well with his stepfather who gave him the beating of his life before burning his hand.

"The victim is the first son of Mrs. Juliet whom she got out of wedlock before she got married to one Mr. Victor George, who resides at No 26, Owhor Street, Rumudolo, New Layout Rumuigbo in Rivers State.

The boy said he is from Degema in Rivers state, and he is just 8yrs old. The boy confessed that he is going through hell in the hands of his mother and stepfather, that they hardly feed him well and he is not in school either.

Last week as hunger wired the little boy, he took his supposed biological mother's 200 naira to buy Gala; the stepfather burnt his hand on a hot stove as punishment for this."
