In an emotional interview with BBC, the sad mother revealed that she had gone to pee when her baby daddy flogged the little boy for disturbing his sleep with his loud cry.
"It happened on a Friday night. I left him to pee and he was crying at the top of his voice. As I came back, I saw the man flogging the baby with a hanger. When he finished flogging the baby, he then tied his hand round. He then said he's just a little child and his hand will heal. He threatened me not to tell anybody."
