A father in Cross River had no mercy for his only son after he punished him for stealing and being stubborn.

One would think he would dish of a regular punishment to the child, but the father went all out and poured hot water on the child which severely disfigured his skin

Instagram user, i_am_theblackchild shared the photo and wrote;
