A young Nigerian girl reportedly attempted to take her own life because her father flogged her over an undisclosed offence.
It was gathered that the girl consumed a poisonous substance to end it all after she was ‘disciplined’ by her father.
Fortunately, it was discovered on time that she had taken poison and was given palm oil to drink, after which she started vomiting.
A video shared online shows the moment the aggrieved girl was throwing up some substance while sitting on the floor.
She was then put in a car and taken to the hospital for further treatment.
Reacting to the video, mmabella_chi wrote: “Are you sure she’s not being Abu$ed? It might be deeper than just flogging.”

Though it doesn’t justify her actions, there are many ways parents can scold their kids, over beating kills d self love, self esteem nd make dem feel worthless. I hope her parents can do better.”
