Friends of a teenage girl living in Ibadan have called out her family members who allegedly subject her to serious humiliation and abuse.
According to them, everyone in the family, including cousins, assault her and she had to run away from home for 2 weeks.
The friend alleged that the young woman’s mother stripped her naked two weeks ago and beat her outside because she came home late. The friend added that members of the young woman’s family have been doing mean things to her, including her cousin, brother, uncle, and parents.
She recently ran away from home and went to stay with a friend and her family begged her to return home.
She returned home and the beatings continued. Her family members allegedly seized her phone from her and locked her up in a room in the house. The friend also shared screenshots of messages the alleged victim sent to her complaining about the recent domestic abuse from her family.
She claimed her uncle returned home and hit her. He also allegedly hit her head on the wall several times and injured her. Her brother also allegedly threatened to deal with her when he comes home.
They are therefore calling on any government agency of NGO to come to the aid of their friend.
