Osun Gov’t rescues 7-year-old girl starved, neglected by relative

The Osun State Ministry of Women, Children and Social Affairs has rescued a seven-year-old girl who was starved and neglected by her aunt.

The girl, who lived with her aunt in Osogbo, Osun state capital was said to have been fed once a week before her aunt abandoned her in the backyard of the house in an unkept environment.

She was rescued by the ministry in collaboration with the state command of the Nigeria Police after her case was reported.

The little girl, whose name is yet to be revealed, was found in very bad shape, skinny and was too weak to stand with broken bones.

The State Government has taken custody of the child and has promised to shelter, educate, feed and take care of the girl’s health.

The authorities have not said anything regarding the whereabouts of the girl’s aunt.
