A Nigerian mother has been arrested by the police for the constant abuse and ill-treatment of her son.
The woman has also lost custody of the child.
According to neighbours, the woman "swore to kill the boy because he's badluck."
The woman got pregnant for a man who ended up marrying another woman and she's said to have taken out her anger on her young son.
Concerned neighbours got the woman arrested and her son was taken from her and handed over to his father.
