A young Nigerian girl reportedly attempted to take her own life because her father flogged her over an undisclosed offense.
It was gathered that the girl consumed a poisonous substance to end it all after she was ‘disciplined’ by her father.
Fortunately, it was discovered on time that she had ingested poison and was given palm oil to drink, after which she started vomiting.
A video shared online captures the moment the aggrieved girl was throwing up some substance while sitting on the floor.
She was then put in a car and taken to the hospital for further treatment.
The incident has generated mixed reactions online as netizens air their reservations about the lady’s decision to commit suicide over physical punishment.

Though it doesn’t justify her actions. There are many ways parents can scold their kids, over beating kills d self love, self esteem nd make dem feel worthless. I hope her parents can do better”
