Daniel Edet Inyang is currently receiving treatment in Atan Ete Mbakara village in Odukpani local government area of Cross River State, for second degree burns sustained from hot water.

According to CrossRiverWatch, the matter was reported to the Odukpani division of the Nigeria Police Force but no action has being taken till date. Exclusive photos obtained by CRW shows Daniel is obviously not responding well to treatment as his body which is covered in Gentian Violet (GV) still show burns with blood clots. Moreover, he now moves around mostly naked.

"I had the privilege of sighting the photos of the injuries on the young lad; they are horrible and unpleasant to behold" says Barrister Eno Iyamba of Basic Rights Counsel, Calabar.

"The action of the so called landlord is a demonstration of the height of manís inhumanity to his fellow man. This is a clear case of attempted murder. It is however unfortunate that the police in Odukpani where the case is said to have been incidented, simply glossed over it and did nothing. The police and other security agencies in the State have a fundamental duty to make the State children friendly.

"They must come to terms with the fact that there is a law known as the Childís Rights Law of Cross River State, 2009. Children have a right to adequate protection and care, and not to be abused on flimsy and unsubstantiated grounds. I call on the police in the State to immediately arrest the perpetrator of this wicked and inhuman act to answer for his crime. Assuming the young boy indeed stole as alleged, it is criminal on the part of the landlord to take laws into his hands. There is absolutely no justification for this gruesome act" Iyamba said

On July 14, one Mr Aniettie, the landlord of the compound where the little boy's guardian Obong Ette, had accused Daniel of stealing his phone and poured hot water on him.
