A three-year-old girl, Haliya Abolore, has died in the Gbagada area of Lagos State after she was allegedly made to sit on a hot water container by her class teacher, identified only as Maryam on Wednesday, October 21. Haliya, who suffered burns in her buttocks and private parts, was thereafter rushed to the Lagos Island General Hospital for treatment.
It was gathered that the matter was reported at the Adeniji Adele Police Division, while Maryam was arrested.
