A houseboy in Lagos Island, Lagos State was badly maltreated and tied in a ram and goat pen for committing an offence that remains unknown.
A neighbour at 5, Offin Canal, Lagos Island, where the boy lives with boss, revealed that the boy having endured suffering from his master was again tied and locked with the animals and starved of food for four days.
He wrote on his Facebook page, “Please, this is what a man in Lagos Island market did to the houseboy staying with him. I think the right authorities should be invited. He needs to be brought to book.
“How can someone padlock a child’s leg and throw him where goats stay for four days? And he locked the gate too.
“Please help me share this but I want to remain anonymous. The house address is No 5, Offin Canal, Lagos Island market.”
