According to reports, a 29-year-old nursing mother submerged her four-year-old daughter in hot water, causing her lower body to burn.
According to reports, the incident occurred on August 1 at Oforikurom, a town close to Samreboi in the Wassa Amenfi West Municipality.
The assembly member for the neighborhood described the incident and claimed that the woman was disciplining her daughter for misplacing her sandals, which were worth $8.
According to Azure Suleman, the mother asked the preschooler to look for the object at first.
When the youngster was unable to locate it, the woman heated some water and drenched the four-year-old in it out of wrath.
However, the accused denied purposefully plunging her daughter into the boiling water as punishment in her defense.
She claims she observed that her child’s private area was hurting. She opted to boil water to treat the youngster after hearing rumors that they had been abused.
The assemblyman, however, is dubious about the justification because residents also questioned it.
Since then, the nursing mother has been detained and charged.
She was given bail, according to the police, since she is a nursing mother of a one-year-old child.
The youngster was also directed to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital by the court for medical care.
The three-year-old daughter is currently unable to walk due to the hot water’s terrible effects on her.
