A 2-year-old boy Ahmed has died after his stepmother allegedly bathed him with hot water in Yandaki town, Kaita local government in Katsina state.

The report gathered at this time revealed that the 21-year-old woman identified as Samsiya, who already is in police custody has been a rival with the boy’s mother who had angrily packed out of her matrimonial home, leaving the boy to the care of his father, Hayatu.

The spokesman for the Katsina Police Command, DSP Gambo Isah, confirming the development to Newsmen said: “Samsiya has been picked up and arraigned before a competent court. The court will determine her innocence or otherwise.”

A source at the hospital who spoke on condition of anonymity said.

“Ahmed suffered 90 degrees burns. The hot water affected him right from the head to toe. But our people tried their best before we lost him.”

The late boy had been referred to the hospital on September 5 after he was discharged from Yandaki Primary Health Care Centre, where he was initially admitted following injuries he sustained from hot water poured on him by his step-mother.

But unfortunately, he died about three weeks ago at Katsina General Hospital after doctors effort to save his life proved abortive. This, therefore, led to the police intervention and the eventual arrest of Samsiya.

It was reportedly gathered that Samsiya has been arraigned before a Senior Magistrate Falile Dikko but nothing seems to have been done to hear her case as she appeared to be suffering from insanity.
