NAIJ.com came across the touching story of an orphan who is currently battling to save his life after his uncle drove a 3-inch nail into his head for stealing.
According to reports, the little boy, Friday Paul, who lives with one of his uncles and his family in an apartment at 6, Anjolarin Street, Odogunyan, Ikorodu, was punished for allegedly stealing from his uncle.
The 8-year-old who moved in with his uncle following the death of his parents two years ago, was accused of stealing N500. Upon denying it, his uncle decided to torture him into saying the truth.
The uncle simply identified as Mr Paul, reportedly dragged him into his room, beat him up and put a 3-inch nail into his head.
The neighbours ran to the apartment upon hearing Friday's agonising screams, and eventually took him to the Ikorodu general hospital where he was rejected over lack of funds, before they took him to The Saviour The Rock private hospital.
Mr Paul had reportedly tried to escape but was caught by neighbours who almost lynched him before police from the Sagamu road division arrived and took him away.

Friday is said to require the sum of N100,000 for surgery, even though the nail has been removed from his head.
