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

According to a child advocate who shared the story after attending the court proceeding, the Nigerian doctor disciplined his son when he caught him watching an inappropriate video with his friends who were visiting their house for a sleep-over.

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

During the court proceedings, the 16-year-old testified that his father frequently subjects him to corporal punishment and is pressuring him to pursue a career he doesn’t want.

After considering the boy’s testimony, the court ruled in favor of taking him away from his father’s custody, placing him under the care of the UK government.
