The result of the autopsy revealed that the baby died of multiple fractures through application of sharp object and trauma.

The suspect, Hosea Folorunsho is a 48-year-old herbalist who is married with 3 children.

May the soul of little Sunday rest in perfect peace!

This world is full of evil. Can you imagine a father killing his own blood son?

    Can’t believe that some foolish human being stil have this stupid act for rituals, all these will never bring money unless you work pray and hard that is when u will get the good things of life. God who created us has made provisions for all our needs. This is a stupid man with no regards for life.
