Man Thouroughly Beaten Up For Refusing To Submit His Daughter For Circumcision



New Telegraph reports that Olalowo Hammed Olalekan and his wife, Modinat, have fled the shores of Nigeria for the safety of their children, after being harassed, beaten and pressured, by their kinsmen, to bring their daughter for circumcision as per traditional requirements. He explains:

“I thought I had died. I was bleeding all over my body with swollen face and cuts on my body. What I experienced from them is not what I wish anybody. If it were my wife or children, they may not have survived it. I was on my way home, when some men began taunting me for not allowing my daughter to be circumcised, rather aided their disappearance.”
