According to Daily Trust, the stepmother identified as Hasiya broke Abdulrahman’s left hand, right leg and Maryam’s head at their father’s house.
The men of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) are searching for the woman who fled the house after security agencies came looking for her at their residence on Monday evening, August 22.
Mother of the children, Halima, who spoke to Daily Trust at the hospital on Tuesday, said she and her husband started having problem 12 days after her son was born which brought to an end, their three year old marriage.
"My son is being treated for a broken hand, a broken leg and bruises on his eye, stomach, back and private part while my daughter is being treated for a broken head after their step mother used the sole of a pointed shoe to hit her head. They were also starved in the house because if you see the way they gulped down the tea my sister made for them. The people in the hospital can bear me witness."
SCDC took the children's father for interrogation and gave him 48 hours to bring the wife or face the wrath of the law.
