  1. Lord have mercy! This man is the devil himself. He should be tried for attempted murder. The child is not safe with him. If the mother cannot be found, the little girl is better off in a home for the motherless children. May God protect this little girl

  2. This poor girl should be reunited with his biological mother immediately. Only a wide animal in human body will use hot rod to beat ready injured innocent little girl in this manner. What is going on in the minds and heads of some criminals in our country Nigeria? How can any normal and caring father do this to a five years old little girl. This animal should be punished and sent to prison for child brutality. I’m not happy with this idiot of a father at all. This is an inhumane behavior from an insane, disturbed or abnormal man.

  3. Could this man be the father? Why would he treat her own very daughter like this? Is the man normal? This man is not worth to be called a father! Wicked man.

  4. is it only me that has noticed that its only poor people (man/woman) that beats their child in such barbaric manner

  5. Crime stories everyday! Father using wife for rituals, mother selling baby to make money, son raping mother, grandmother selling grandchild. LORD HAVE MERCY…….

  6. What is this?
    Obviously, he’s hungry and angry at the same time.
    They should investigate if he’s really the father of the poor girl.

  7. single mother, single father syndrome everywhere. we’ve taken divorce for another big occasion after wedding.. am very sure that if the mother were to be living with the father such thing won’t have happened. who knows maybe the man did this out the frustration and anger he had towards the wife.
    This is a very evil act and the man should pay for his misdeeds @least with some years in jail. #get well soon dear
    #clueless human

  8. But why are some people so wicked? What kind of hearts do they have? Seriously God is so merciful to spare some people to still be existing.

  9. I HOPE that this man will be torture in a similar way, if not by the police, then by armed robbers. Whoever executes the torture avenges the child.

    WOMEN SHOULD watch closely for traces of uncontrollable anger in their men before they say I Do. Anger is the madness of “sane” people, and a man who cannot rule himself when angry is a brute. This man is not worthy of fatherhood.
