Omisakin said that the corpse of the four-year-old Rachel was found inside a canal close to the residence of the accused.

“The accused in his statement claimed that the deceased was pushed on a sharp object by her playmates and because the wound was not properly treated, it developed into a big issue.

“Instead of taking the child to the hospital, he decided to do a home remedy which eventually led to her death.

“And instead of depositing the remains at the mortuary, the accused dumped her body in a canal close to his residence.

“The deceased is the sixth child of the accused and has eight other siblings,” she said.

The offence contravened sections 165(a) (b) and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos state, 2015.

Adewusi who is standing trial on a two-count charge of misconduct with regards to a corpse and without lawful justification in disposing a corpse pleaded not guilty.

    It’s quite unfortunate and again,this is result of overload..having such number of children without steady source of income will definitely lead to such action,especially with current situation in Nigeria.

    Nigerians have to take note that nobody has won or will ever win an award for having so many children,not even from our Father in Heaven, so let’s be cautious on how we multiply and and allow them to be inheriting suffering and hardship. . RIP to the dead.
