A 13-year-old boy, Ovey Friday, has lost his hands after his stepmother took him to a native doctor over allegations of being a wizard.
The stepmother had earlier accused him of making love to her in her dream, an allegation the boy denied.
However, in an attempt to get a confession from him, she took him to her native doctor in Wulko, Nasarawa State, where hot coals were placed on his tied hands.
The incident led to a permanent deformity of his right hand, while the left hand was amputated at an Abuja hospital on Thursday.
