Police in Ogun have arrested a man who sat his five-year-old son in a heated pan for stealing fish.

Police was alerted by neighbours in Oke Soppen area of Ijebu Igbo who reported that Idowu Sikiru was  about to kill his son Segun.

Police spokesman in the command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said Sikiru also used the hot pan to burn the boy’s fingers and mouth.

The boy has been hospitalized.

But the commissioner of police in Ogun, CP Kenneth Ebrimson, has ordered Idowu be transferred to anti human trafficking and child labour unit of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and prosecution.
