A nine-year-old boy, identified only as Kingsley, was on Thursday abandoned at a filling station at Adetola bus stop on Ijaiye Road, Agbado, Lagos State, by his mother.
It was learnt that the mother, Blessing, allegedly tortured him for greeting a neighbour.
She was said to have brought the boy from Ojuelegba, where they live and dumped him at the station around 7am.
Punch Metro gathered that Blessing left the area after telling the child that she wanted to buy some items at a nearby shop.
According to a report by Mail Online, 54 year old nurse practitioner Oluyemisi Adebayo (pictured left) has been arrested and charged in the killing of a disabled toddler who was submerged in scalding bath water for about 30 second. Adebayo was arrested on Wednesday April 28th in Queens, New York just as she was about to board a flight to Nigeria, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said.
