My Mother threatened to kill me – 6yr old boy stabbed by his mom

Update on the 6-year-old that was stabbed by his wicked mother. His name is Promise Eboye and he survived an attack that would have killed even an adult had the injuries been sustained in vital parts of the body.

Promise, a bright and sharp boy lives with his mother and step-father in Kollington area of Ijaiye, Lagos, while his biological father lives in Benin, Edo State.
At about 8am on Monday, Promise’s mother, Comfort, stabbed her son four times, inflicting life-
threatening injuries on the boy’s body.

The broken bottle the woman used on her son tore into the boy’s flesh inflicting one three-inch injury and another two-inch injury on the boy’s back. Two other wounds looked equally horrific but were not as long and deep as the other two.

Neighbours said if Promise had not run away from his mother, who held tight to his wrist and stabbed him as he screamed, he would have been stabbed to death.

What manner of crime could such a young boy have committed, people who witnessed the scene have asked.

On Wednesday, PUNCH visited the woman’s house on Olawoyin Street. The story that Promise, his neighbours and the hospital workers told could only be described as incredible.

Promise, who seems to have a remarkable memory, said that his mother has a “N30 cane”, which she uses to flog him, even when he had no idea what he had done wrong. He said she would sometimes beat him till he could not walk.

“My mother is wicked,” Promise said simply, quietly. As shocking as that sounded, coming from a six-year-old, it explained the kind of treatment the boy had been experiencing in the hands of his mother.

Promise said he had been living with his father in Edo State since he was one year old. But when he was five, his mother came to take him from his father’s house. The boy said:
“I was sweeping the day she came. I did not know her as my mother. My father then told me that she was my mother and she had come to take me to Lagos. When we came to Lagos, I started to live with her and my step-father. But she beat me all the time.”
Asked what happened on Monday to make his mother stab him, Promise said he tripped and fell.
He said:
 “When I fell, my mother asked me what pushed me and why I fell. She was angry and went to take her N30 cane. When she was beating me too much and I was screaming, one of our neighbours came to hold her hand to take the cane away from her. The woman said I should run away because my mother would kill me the way she was beating me. 
My mother said ‘I will kill you, I will kill you’. When she could not find anything else to beat me with, she took a broken bottle on the ground and started to stab me on the back.”
Promise was rescued by alarmed residents, who took him to a private hospital nearby. But by the time the boy was taken to the hospital, Comfort had planted another story in the boy’s head.

Pastor Charles Agboola, a pharmacist who founded the hospital, said the two people who brought Promise in said the boy fell down and landed on a broken bottle. When Agboola’s wife, a nurse, asked the boy what actually happened, Promise told her that he was watching two people fight when he sustained the injury.

The nurse said:
 “He told me that they pushed him and he landed on the broken bottles but when I informed my husband, he said immediately that the story could not be true. I also noticed that the wounds were not consistent with that story. 
It was shocking that the boy’s mother was not remorseful in any way. It was when she dashed out of the door under the pretence that she was going to look for money for the boy’s treatment, that a crowd from their street, who were coming to the hospital ,grabbed her and told the true story of what happened. 
When we asked Promise why he lied, he said his mother had told him what to say when asked how he sustained the injury.”
Mr. Agboola said that by the time the boy was about to leave the clinic, he was crying.
“He said he did not want to go back home. We fed him, gave him any kind of food he wanted because I could not leave the boy to suffer even though nobody paid us any money for his treatment. We even prayed for him. Anytime we brought up the issue of who would take over his care when he was released from our hospital, he became very sad,” the pharmacist said.
Neighbours said Comfort sometimes punished the boy by smashing his head against a wall whenever he did something wrong.

Comfort was later handed over to the police at Ijaiye-Ojokoro Division.

Comfort, who is nursing a toddler, said Promise stepped on her baby, which was why she became angry.

When Promise’s biological father was later contacted, he initially said he wanted nothing to do with the issue.
“I have other children – I have produced boys and girls. Whatever she likes, she should do with her son. When she likes, she would take the boy to a motor park and send him to me through a driver,” the man said.
Later when he was told that his ex-wife was in police custody, he said he would come to Lagos to pick the boy.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Kenneth Nwosu, said Comfort would be arraigned as soon as possible.
He explained that Promise had been treated and discharged from hospital. As of the time of filing this report, Promise was being housed at the Lagos State social welfare home.

Later on Thursday, Comfort was arraigned at an Ojokoro Magistrate Court, Lagos on charges of assault occasioning harm and attempted murder.

Promise’s father also came to Lagos on Thursday to take the boy. The father declined to speak on the issue when asked some questions.
“I only came to Lagos to pick the boy,” he said.

All that saddens me is the extent of the psychological trauma that has been inflicted on the boy who did not ask to be born to this mean mother. I really feel for him.

Oh my God. Poor boy. I pray he finds happiness and peace of mind with his dad at least. I pray this Promise becomes a great man in the future and this creature called his "mother" will regret ever treating him like this. Amen.

TF? ...and that was how he went from fire to oven, why the hell did they give the boy to a man who could say this:
“I have other children – I have produced boys and girls. Whatever she likes, she should do with her son. When she likes, she would take the boy to a motor park and send him to me through a driver”

It is well with our country.

Evil woman..she is just a bitter woman

Angie said...

The woman must be mentally deranged; no sane person will do this to a child, let alone their biological one.
She needs psychological help.

Hmmm. What would make a mother do this to her own son. Do I call this transferred aggression or what? Signs of the last days, I must say

Anonymous said...

May God continue to punish that wicked woman without mercy. People are begging,paying,drinking all kinds of concoctions just to have a child. God dashed her one without pain and just imagine what she had done with her gift. Oh some women just don't know how lucky they are to be able to conceive without stress.

Hello Linda, this story touched the core of my heart. I live in the UK and will not mind looking after him if legality can be sorted out. I can come to Nigeria to pick him. I am unsure about leaving any number as I do not want people contacting me. If you want to take this up leave coded message in this caption. I will then be in contact. Thanks

Dear Linda,

I don't comment much on your blog but i must confessed that the above incident touched my heart. I have kids too and can imagine the level of injuries inflicted on Promise besides the unending torture the poor boy had to go through in the hands of his wicked mother.

The father nonchalant attitude too does not show sign of responsibility either.
please i will suggest that you consider what the UK lady said as per taking custody of Promise who she requested to be taken to the UK.

i believe promise has a bright future.
kindly follow up on this matter.

Regards

thank you

when this boy becomes an Obama, they will claim him as their child abi? So you fucked without thought and a seed was planted. Have you no compassion from carrying him in your womb for 9 months? To the fewer, Your nasty sperm is part of the boy. Does that not speak an atom of Care and loving to you? May you be castrated and your bitch of a mother MAY God reward her in Kind a thousand fold.

Seems we are in era of parents stabbing children! I suggest children warfare department (even if we had any self) to look into this issue. Is becoming alarming

Some women are not meant to be a mother...how can someone do such a terrible thing to a child? Heart of a bitter woman,am sure she had Promise out of wedlock to have hated her own son to
death.

Victim of baby mama, the parties are now differently married leaving the boy btwn the devil and deep blue sea.i hope she goes to jail.children out of wedlock or product of divorce is really not too good,people should stop before the kids stop then.if he had sex with another baby or co- child,it means he lacks moral training or his current parents have been doing it while he watches,children imbibe more of what we do that what we preach. sorry my dearest little boy,its well.

I cringed when the man said "I have produced boys and girls." is his loins an out-of-control production equipment? So he could go on and "produce" children like they are goods? I think there ought to be law that people of certain income range cannot have certain number of children their income cannot sustain.
