Recent photos of baby Miracle whose hand was amputated after he was allegedly assaulted by his father have stirred emotions online.
The two-month-old baby had his hand amputated after sustaining severe injuries due to an assault by his father.
The baby’s father identified as Confidence Amatobi, allegedly used a hanger to repeatedly hit Miracle on his hand, because he was crying and disturbing his sleep.
The baby was subsequently rushed to the Federal Medical Center, Owerri where the doctors had no option but to amputate his hand because it was already decaying.
On Thursday, November 3, the first lady of the state, Chioma Uzodinma, visited Miracle and his mum at the hospital. She stated that the police has issued a warrant of arrest for Amatobi so he can face the full wrath of the law.
