Following the outrageous news of a 21-month-old child brutalised by his stepmother in Kano State, Annie Idibia has expressed her anger and sadness over the little boy’s experience.
The Nollywood actress took to her Instagram page today, May 26, 2016, to bare her heart on the situation while praying that the little boy identified as Musa, receives justice.
Annie shared a photo of little Musa in the hospital with his hands and legs in casts, as they had been broken by his step mother, writing:
“This broke my heart !!!! Sad… Hurt … How can humans be this wicked! His “Stepmom” did this to him ,broke his 2legs,arms,cut off his tongue and God knows what else is broken,what could he have done that was so bad.. An innocent child who is still learning how to even speak ,a child that needs love and protection …God!this kid is even a few months younger than my 2yrs old daughter ,I can’t get this child off my mind and the trauma this little toddler is going through… Pls am calling on all Legal Practitioners ,human right lawyers, to join and let’s get #justiceforMusa. The monster who did this to him must be put behind bars and Punished!!! Heard he has a senior sister too.. Please should be taken out of the reach of her wicked step mom and back to her mother … Also heard the boy father is busy defending his wife that she didn’t mean it … Please ,such evil should be dealt with! Thank you @angelsofhopefoundation for letting us know and everyone else’s trying to get help for Musa!God bless you. Pls post Musa pic with the hashtag #justiceformusa till it gets to our leaders … Musa must get justice …#endviolenceagainstchildren #justiceformusa.”
Annie is not the only who who has been outraged by Musa’s plight, as the Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, had reportedly paid the little boy a visit at the hospital where he has been hospitalised.
Thankfully, the culprit has been arrested by the police while Musa is now being cared for by Angels of Hope Foundation.
