Nigerian designer, Yomi Casual, has taken to social media to make his thoughts known concerning child abuse in Nigeria and what isn't.
The issue of child abuse has remained a controversial topic of discussion in the Nigerian society. While some people believe physically disciplining a child equals child abuse, others, however, don't agree.
One of such is Casual, who is the brother to top comedian, AY Makun.
In a recent post shared to his Instastory, the designer expressed that discipline is not child abuse and defending a child's mistake will only lead to bigger problems.

A funny video recently made the rounds on social media that has left a number of Nigerians in stitches. A mother recently shared the video of her son’s funny reaction after he pleaded in the most unique way when she tried to flog him.
In the video, the mother could be heard scolding the little boy for a naughty thing that he had done. Apparently, the boy had taken something he was not meant to touch and without permission. As the woman scolded her son, the little boy told her to calm down.
He said she should "be calming down" and that she needs to rest. He even took things further by sitting down on the arm of a sofa and demonstrating how he wanted her to relax.

However, not everyone found the video amusing.
Lauretta Onochie, an aide to President Muhammadu Buhari on social media, reacted to the viral video of the young boy.
In a tweet she posted on Monday, August 3, Onochie said what happened in the video was not discipline but "a clear case of child abuse".
According to the presidential aide, the mother would have been charged and the little boy "would be in care" if the incident had happened in the United Kingdom.
