A grandmother has  reportedly been arrested by the police in Edo State for allegedly inflicting grievous injury on her granddaughter over a meal of noodles.

According to Punch, the incident was said to have occurred in Benin, the state capital.

But the Commissioner of Police, Mr. Johnson Kokumo, told our correspondent on Friday that he was not yet aware of the case.

“I have not confirmed (the incident),” Kokumo said.

It was learnt that the suspect had claimed that the little girl ate the food without her permission.

The woman was said to have allegedly placed the hands of the little girl on a lit gas stove to serve as a punishment, leaving her fingers badly burnt.

It was, however, learnt that the girl was later rescued and taken to the University of Benin Teaching Hospital for treatment, following the intervention of the state Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development.

Photos of the victim, which went viral on the Internet, drew condemnation from members of the public.

When contacted, the Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Magdalene Ohenhen, told our correspondent to call back next Tuesday.

Ohenhen said, “Today is a public holiday. I am in the village burying my brother. Call on Tuesday.”
