A 14-year-old boy, identified as Abdul Isa, a resident in Gangara, Jos North LGA of Plateau State has been brutally beaten by his uncle for stealing neighbour’s money.
The teenage boy was said to have stolen N3,000 from a neighbour when his Uncle Kawu Musa brutally disfigured his face.
According to reports, the Uncle has been arrested and he is in the custody of Nigeria police force C division in Jos, Plateau State.

In my(@jossybliss) chat with him on his hospital bed where he’s receiving treatment, he narrated the incident to me in Hausa language.
the said money was retrieved from him and given back to the owner’.
As a result of his condition, he was not accepted at the Plateau State Specialist Hospital, he was taken to a private hospital where he’s being treated.
He has stitches on his face, and swellings as a result of the assault on him.
My question is, why treat this young lad like a hardcore criminal when you’re meant to be a father to him, seeing he lost his father at a tender age and also without a mother?
What do you expect of a young boy as Abdul who has not been to school all his life but the street as his favourite spot? I want to call on all relevant authorities to ensure Abdul Isa gets justice for this inhuman act perpetrated on him.
