Woman Whose Child Has Cerebral Palsy Talks About How The Therapist She Trusted Abused Her Child...

This story and Video totally freaked me out...Wickedness beyond belief.....





I’m Bukola Ayinde, Founder of P4:13 Foundation and author of Diary of a Special Needs Mum.

Getting a diagnosis which says your child has Cerebral Palsy is a parent’s worst nightmare. I had my period of living in denial; wishing the problem would go away, like it was all a dream, but the reality stared me in the face.

My husband and I decided to face the challenge before us squarely.

We engaged different specialists; Neurologist, Paediatrician, Physiotherapist, Speech therapist, Occupational therapist, Special Needs Care Givers. At one point we were scouting for a very good physiotherapist.

A parent of a special needs child recommended a young lady to me. I mentioned her name to one of my daughter’s therapist who confirmed that the lady was very good at her job. However, she also confirmed that the lady could be arrogant. I spoke with another therapist on the field who also confirmed that the recommended Physiotherapist was good at what she does but she could be rude.

Well, at that point of my life, I didn’t mind if she was going to be rude to me or arrogant as far as she was as good as everyone had said, I was fine with that. All I wanted was to see was my child’s improvement, I could take any sh*t in between.

She came on board as my daughter’s physiotherapist. She was very professional and dedicated, but she didn’t come cheap. She didn’t come cheap at all.
My daughter attended a mainstream school that allowed her to use the sickbay as her pullout room for her physiotherapy session.

In June 2016, my daughter’s school proprietress requested that my husband and I should make out time to see her. When we eventually did a week later, she told us that the physiotherapist had manhandled our daughter and she was going to show us a CCTV recording to prove it.

At the back of my mind I felt the woman was exaggerating because therapy could be demanding at times. My child may cry, if she didn’t like the exercise or if the exercise was tasking.
However, when I watched the video, I was shocked beyond words that someone I trusted with my daughter could treat her worse than an animal. I believe that even an animal shouldn’t be treated that way.

I mean, she came highly recommended; she is a Masters degree holder. She is not an illiterate.
Apparently she didn’t remember that there was a CCTV in the room or she felt nobody would be checking the TV at that particular time.

It was heartbreaking to see my daughter treated by a health worker in such a barbaric act.
I watched my daughter as she fell down several times hitting her head on the tiles. There were times she hit her head on the edge of the wooden bed before falling to the ground.

Her Physiotherapist slapped her three times; the third time with her cell phone. She left her head hanging upside for 5 minutes. She twisted my daughter’s hands several times; at a point she sat on her hands, at another point she tied her hands behind her head. I watched as my daughter fell from her chair while her neck was stuck in between the space at the vertical back rest and the flat wood used for sitting down. I watched on as this lady typed on her phone 90% of the time only taking some time off to torture my daughter. Did I mention that she took out time to take her selfie? Up to five times.

After we watched the recording, my husband could not control his tears. My heart bled.
My daughter’s Neurologist said we cannot ascertain the level of damage to her brain because we did not bring her immediately it happened. He said an MRI would have been done to ascertain any damage.
I got her arrested.
She said she was sorry
She claimed depression and ill health
I didn’t believe her then, I don’t believe her now.

I had to make a decision, to leave my daughter in the hands of her nannies at home (which may be another source of abuse) and follow through to ensure the physiotherapist was duly punished. (Bearing in mind the justice system in Nigeria) or drop the charges lodged at the police station and allow Medical Rehabilitation Therapists Board at Yaba to handle the matter.

I dropped the police charges. I decided to stay with my traumatized daughter.
I handed the Physiotherapist over to the Registrar at Medical Rehabilitation Therapists Board at Yaba.

Her punishment:
• Three months withdrawal of her practicing license.
• Three months work in a general hospital under supervision without pay
• She was to undergo a psychiatric test
Like seriously? Are you kidding me?
She had been practicing for a year without renewing her license and all you could do was to withdraw her license officially for a mere three months?

She went back to the Registrar at Medical Rehabilitation Therapists to ask for permission to travel to USA to get treatment.

I called to check on the case, and I was told she had travelled for treatment
I was told not to worry as she cannot practice anywhere else in the world without a letter from the board.
Some months later, I was told by a reliable source that she was not taking any major treatments but attending a Masters programme in US.

So she got away with child abuse, assault, battery, in fact attempted murder.
This is only possible in Nigeria right?

I went back to Medical Rehabilitation Center, I was shocked to find out that the case had gone cold.
What stops her from coming back into the country and working with other children?
How many Nigerians ask for practicing license before employing a professional?

I strongly believe that the least the board should have done was to declare her unfit to work with children.
In respect to my daughter, the signs were there: She had been withdrawn for a while in fact she had stop smiling, interacting with anybody in the house or attempting to answer questions in school. I kept asking the care giver that followed her to school about the sudden change. The caregiver said she had no idea. I came up with my own theory and I brushed it aside.

How would I have known that a health worker, someone I trusted with my child could be so cruel? The Physiotherapist had been with us for over two years. I can only imagine….

Well, I pulled my daughter out of school and started her own mini school at home. I let go of my current caregivers for good reasons and got new ones. With care and love, she added weight, came out of her shell and got better. Right now she attends a school three times a week and we are making progress.

Child abuse is real…from the people you least expect. Protect your children.


From Bellanaija.


Why didnt she reveal the woman's name at least?Revealing her name will go viral and she will not be able to do this again.

This world just tire person....the kind of stories one reads and hear everyday is so heart wrenching....just imagine the wickedness of this lady...smh

crazyhornywife said...

Didnt have d stomach to finish d video. The wickedness some people do,even the devil is a learner. And to think she is highly recommended???? Her license should be shred and she should cool off in jail.
Disable people can be hard to deal with but they need love and patience. Kai, i wish I could pull this bitch by the hair and use pepper in her anus and throat!!!

Chickyclassy Mee said...

The heart of human is desperately wicked,it beats me why we have so many heartless people in this country and Africa mostly,who do we trust?

The General's Wife said...

I couldn't get myself to watch the video. I stopped a min into it,when the poor baby fell off her chair and was left hanging "upside down"
My heart is bleeding as I am reading this😒
It hurts me badly when kids undergo torture and abuse especially from people who should protect them.

You poor poor mom😒
And u trusted her for 2 years?
Can't even imagine the torture u went through.

Who can tell what goes on in some seemingly "healthy" people's minds?


lovetoloveu said...

I can't watch this. Don't want to cry this morning. Will satisfy myself with the write up. Why drop the charges? She needs to be dealt with. Nigeria no justice. Is dat enoff punishment for her? Shame her on the social media. So parents can beware

Kae_Kae said...

Subhanallah! They better not allow that lady go off like that. Nigeria won't stop annoying me with the light way they treat issues related to child abuse. I mean look at the way she was just twisting the child and bending the head, whoever forced her to take the job? At least she could have placed the child on the bed instead and not even attend to her? Why punish a little innocent physically-challenged child so? Khai!

This video is very painful to watch.
Saw it yesterday and I was filled with rage.
And she is supposed to be a professional in the field?
I was even more shocked at the punishment given to her
Damn too lenient.
WTF?

Poor little child...if the care giver likes...she can run away for ten years...she will answer to God for ill treating the child. That's just so evil what she did.

Trust Bella naija people. They don't trace her,sent petition to US embassy to revoke her visa, and to the Mandela fellowship she got too.
Plus they have traced her University and sent the video to her lecturers and professors. Plus various emails.

Fab Mum said...

I have read the text.
I'm not about to watch whay will kill my mood for today.
She should be traced and metted the same treatment.

Fab Mum said...

It's time to retweet her name and call for justice.

Nigerians let's do this
These evil set of people can't keep getting away with stuff like this

Ralu M said...

I won't watch this video please, reading the story is heartbreaking enough. I don't want anything spoiling my spirit further.
Madam I hope that video is in your possession? If it is, please go the newspapers, publish her story and hopefully she gets what she deserves. Try and get wherever she's doing that masters degree, send an email to them and attach the video clips as evidence.
She nearly ruined your life and that of your daughter, she needs to learn about the consequences of the evil she did. Serve her that justice cold and hard.

BLOGLORD (MVBM) said...

Exactly!
Why not place the child on the bed instead since she has a problem with the child sprawling? Shebi the poor little girl would have been at least more comfortable there rather than this torture?
This Anthonia is a demon in human clothing. Witch!

My lord. This country is fucked. The people in that board are they serious? Are they not supposed to be seasoned doctors? They should banned her from practicing for life. She should go to jail. All those other mother's who were recommending are stupid!!! They probably did same to thier child. And madam pls buy CCTV camera in your house too.

Could not watch it all, too sad

This woman must be crazie! No empathy! Well, it can only happen in a country where there is no law! Try this shit here and your career is dead for life!

DON™ said...

Omg. What I read is enough, no need of watching the video again. But this woman is still shelding her. Why not call her name and end her career.
Her license need to be revoked.

Ed said...

Chai! Who asked me to watch it oo...this disheartening.... She would never go unpunished

A_m_aka said...

So sad. She was frustrated from working with the girl and she didn't just quit rather than punishing her that way. But was the baby not crying with all the falls and hitting her head? I guess she was cos the lady was cleaning her face. And if she was crying the school authority should have heard her cry. She should be dealt with appropriately.

It's bad enough she didn't even do the physiotherapy she was paid to do. She had to wicked the child on top. So they paid for u to come and sit and use ur phone and wicked their child on top??? I usually do not wish people evil but may u reap 10 fold of what u metted out on this helpless child. May u experience 10 times the wickedness u exposed this child to.

Bold Marehi said...

oh my God! that woman is evil.

treasure BB said...

Humans..

maman d'etre said...

I am glad i signed the petition to revoke her visa.This woman has no empathy and does not care about special needs children. She should be prevented from further harming and abusing other children. How can someone be so non chant about her job. See what this poor child had to go through.

deborah bala said...

I could not watch pass 1.09 my God. This lady is wicked, so wicked.

Pffft said...

I couldn't watched the video.

I haven't recovered from the video of Aluu 4. If I watch this, knowing how sensitive I am towards children, only God knows what will happen.

Mother, this happened in 2016? Correct me if I'm wrong. Why for God's sake have you kept silent this long?

She should be stripped of her licence. She is unfit to take care of anything not even air.

She should also be made to spend years in jail.
This is assault.
Made even worse because it was done by someone paid to protect a defenseless child.

I don't want to think of how many other children she has harmed and is still harming. I don't want to think of how many more monsters are doing this as we speak.

Let's deal with this jackass first.

Push up said...

Madam, if I were in your shoes, il kidnap the lady, tie her up in my house for 1month and beat her contineously, she will be forced to go through a whole different kind of torture, from eating my daughter poo to eating left overs. You all can call me wicked but I don't joke with my kids, when I release her and she reports to the police then we can both claim depression and madness

Anonymous said...

Mrs Bukola Ayinde, I am deeply sorry your child had to go through all that torture. Please are you aware that with this video and supporting documents you and your entire household can get a permanent residency in America? That child needs a positive environment, where people in similar situations have gotten better over time, he/she will access quality education and become employed. As a founder, you can run your program from abroad and have delegates in nja. I wish you the best.

Really sick world, I can't even watch past 50 seconds and am crying so much.
And this woman has evidence but has kept quiet, can't believe this.
How can anyone treat a child especially one with disability this bad? Its so sad, I don't know why I opened this post cos I have been avoiding it all day.
My heart is really heavy.
May that lady never know joy, peace and all good things in life.
She will die a miserable death.

Madam,

Nigeria is a lawless jungle. You can send the video to the American embassy with supporting documents and they will bring this woman to justice. Such a person poses significant risk of harm to children as such is considered a risk to members of the public. Based on this she does not meet the criteria for a visa to the US or any other western world for that matter. So dont lose hope, as a matter of fact the worst thing she could have done is to travel to the US with such history with evidence.

Anonymous said...

This is inaccurate information. The crime was NOT committed in the US, so they are not entitled to a Victim of Crime Visa.
