The Niger Child Rights Protection Agency is to charge a 30-year-

old mother of three, Bilkisu Suleiman of Sabon Titi Area of Tunga, to court

for burning her 9-year-old daughter’s mouth with firewood.

The Director-General of the agency, Hajiya Mairam Kolo, said on Friday that

the case was reported to the agency by the Headmaster of the victim’s

school, Malam Musa Garba.

Kolo said the victim’s teacher had reported the matter to the school

authority after seeing the girl’s burnt mouth.

She said that the accused was reported to have denied the victim from

attending school and sending her to hawk on several occasions.

Kolo said the accused would be charged under Section 26 of Child Right

Law for neglect, ill treatment and abandonment, exposure to risk of

burning.

She said that Section 26 of the State Child Right Law attracts a fine of

N5,000, or a term of two months’ imprisonment.

The director-general, decried the attitude of parents who sent their children

to hawk in order to make ends meet.

According to her, hawking exposes children to rape and other abuses.

She said the agency would continue to protect the rights of children and

bring justice to the vulnerable.

Suleiman told the agency that she burnt her daughter’s mouth because she

had been stealing money in the house.

She said the girl also stole money from a neighbours’ room, which led her

to burn her mouth.outh with firewood
