A UK-based Nigerian doctor has reportedly lost custody of his 16-year-old son after flogging him with a belt.

A child advocate who shared the story after turning up in court for the case, said the Nigerian doctor flogged his son after he caught him watching an inappropriate video with his friends who visited their house for a sleep-over.

The boy’s friends reportedly called the police who then took him away. They also told the police that while flogging his son, the doctor repeatedly told his son “is this how you’ll become a doctor”.

In court, the 16-year-old told the court that his father always flogs him and is forcing him to choose a career he doesn’t want. After listening to the boy’s testimony, the court ordered that the boy be taken away from his father. He will remain in custody of the UK government.
