August 14, 2017 – Man & Wife Arrested For Dumping Daughter After Failed Attempt To Use Her
Girl Rescued From Evil Father & Step Mother Who Attempted To Kill Her For Money Rituals
Police in Ogun state have arrested a man identified as Nasiru and his wife, for allegedly attempting to use their seven-year-old daughter, Abibat, for rituals.
The duo, according to a release by the command’s spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, yesterday, were arrested following a distress call from members of the public that a strange ‘luggage’ was sighted by the roadside at Asabala area, along Papalanto-Sagamu Road.
Upon receiving the information, the DPO of Owode-Egba, CSP Shehu Alao, led his men to the scene, where the luggage was found. Inside was a white sack in which the seven-year-old Abibat was found.
Oyeyemi added that one of the girl’s fingers on the right hand had been cut off, tied and also put inside the sack.
He said the police later learnt that the girl had been dumped at the roadside since last Friday.
“Having realised that the girl was still alive, she was quickly taken to the hospital for medical attention. It was when she regained consciousness that she informed the police that her father and step-mother were the ones who cut off one of her fingers, tied her, put her inside the sack and dumped her inside the bush for her to die there.
“Upon the information from the victim, a serious manhunt was launched for the father and his wife and they were arrested in the evening of Sunday. The duo are currently undergoing interrogation.”
The suspects have been transferred to the anti-kidnapping/cultism section of Ogun State Police Command Headquarter for further investigation and prosecution of the suspects.
