A video making rounds on social media has shown a daughter standing up to an abusive father who had attempted to beat her up like he always does.
The incident which had reportedly taken place in the Ikorodu area of Lagos, was captured on camera by a neighbor who had witnessed the whole incident unfold.
According to the neighbor, it was not the first time the incident would occur. The man was well known for beating up his wife and other members of his family.
Luck, however, ran out on him when one of his children could no longer take the harsh treatment being meted out on her and the rest of her family members, by someone who should actually be the one protecting them from harm’s way.
In the video, the teenager could be heard lamenting in Yoruba language as she held on to the father’s shirt. She said it would have been much better if she does not have a father.
“You will kill me today. You are a shameless father. It’s better not to have a father than to have you.” She said.

It was further reported that the man took to his heels and fled the scene when he realized that he had been captured on camera. He, however, returned to pack some of his things before taking off again.
