Nov 8, 2013 – Nigerian Man Beats His Nephew To Death For Bed-wetting In London –  Ben Igbinedion Found Guilty Of Murder

A 43-year-old Nigerian man identified as Ben Igbinedion is cooling off in a London jail for killing his nephew.

3-year-old Daniel Evbuowman met his untimely death in the hand of his angry uncle in the wee hours of Saturday 2nd of March, 2013.

Ben Igbinedion reportedly attacked the innocent boy after discovering urine on the bed they both shared.

Moments after the brutal assault that left the little boy unconscious, he quickly placed the child in a different bed, but when other family members tried to wake Daniel in the morning, they found him unresponsive. Daniel was taken to a hospital where he died.

During his trial, the court heard that Daniel was put in the care of Igbinedion, who was also left in charge of his three children while his wife was at work. He told Daniel and his youngest son that they should sleep in his room, while his other two children sleep in their own room. One of Igbinedion’s children was woken by him telling off Daniel for wetting the bed, the jury was told.

An autopsy found that Daniel died from major trauma to his ribs and pelvis, and established the injuries could not have been caused by a fall from a bed.

Ben Igbinedion was found guilty of Daniel’s murder on Thursday November 7th.

Igbinedion’s testimony of the events of that night were contradicted by the accounts his children gave to police.

Speaking after the guilty verdict, detective chief inspector Graeme Gwyn said: “Ben Igbinedion’s violent actions resulted in the death of a three-year-old boy who had no chance of defending himself and devastated the lives of two families.

“Throughout the time since Daniel’s death, Igbinedion has continued to deny any involvement. However, a jury has seen through his story and convicted him of murder.”
In a statement read to the court, Daniel’s mother Augustina Kunu said: “How do I describe the loss of my only child Daniel? Daniel’s death has left me empty, heartbroken, lonely, lost, devastated and confused.
“I cannot concentrate or focus on my studies, I am unable to sleep and when I am able I wake up in tears because I can no longer see him lying by my side. I cannot get over Daniel’s death because of the bond we had.”

She added: “He was a brilliant son, a friend, a star, a hero and a help-mate. He would look into my eyes and say, ‘Mummy how are you?’ His death has affected my marriage, leaving it empty because Daniel was our dream, the pride and crown of our marriage.
“His dad, Victor, has been left broken-hearted, confused, lonely and empty. This whole matter has pulled our family apart. My prayer is that God will restore peace to our families.”

The evil uncle will be sentenced on Friday the 22nd of November, 2013 at the Old Bailey court house.

May the soul of the innocent boy rest in peace.

What a wicked world!

  1. with God everything is possible a 3 years old boy living with his uncle doing what,we should always learn from other people’s mistake a lot of case like this has happened, you must not live your child to live with anybody as long as you are still alive, a woman can never in her life do this, i remember when my brother in-law son came to live with me my children have their separate room and the boy is the youngest among my children i have to let him sleep in my room together with my husband and before the day break he has bed-wetting my husband wanted to beat him and i have to stop him and told him how old is this boy.I stopped bed- wetting when i was 10 years old. RIP to the innocent soul.

    • @ Esther and @ Blessing. This is the problem that we are facing as Nigerians. You guys claim that you know him very well, then why is there an “IF”. Its people like you that made them to convict him. I dont know him at all, But I know Sandra and her family, including Victor. I dont believe that she will ever be with a violent man. She is way too smart for that These are all temptations. these are trying times that we need to be with the family, physically and and in our prayers. GOd and God only knows what happened that night. How much beating can you get, to make it look worse than a MVA. If he really beat up the child that bad, the chld must have being wailing and crying, and No body heard? Common guys, lets be real here. That beating could have being heard by the other kids or even the neighbors. Have you guys and the stupid jury consider Sibling Rivalry? or even previous beating? Am just saying.

  2. Dis is spiritual,d boy ave b killed in d spirit realm already.D uncle is nt evil but d evil 1 used him 2 take away d joy of d innocent couple n d bond btw d 2 families.Ogun akoba adaba Olorun maa je kari.

  3. This man must be mad how many 3yrs old kids in d whole wide world dont bed wet? My son is 3 and use pampers in the night although he stop using during the day, night is not so easy .so this sadist think he did not bed wet when he was 3 he should call his mother from d jail and ask questions.

  4. IT MAY BE A RITUAL KILLING , BECAUSE SOME OF OUR AFRICAN MEN ARE INTO CULT, AND AGAIN WE AFRICAN ARE FOND OF TREATING SOMEONE ELSE CHILDREN LIKE A SLAVE ,IF YOU LIVE WITH THEM, I WITNESS MY NEIGHBOUR TREATING A GIRL LIKE A SLAVE, SHE MADE HER WORK FROM 5AM TO 12MIDNIGHT, AND THEY WOULD NOT ALLOW HER TO SLEEP IN THE ROOM , SHE HAS TO PUT HER MAT BY THE PASSAGE.EVERY MINUTE SHE BEAT HER UP LIKE HELL , MOST ESPECIALLY HIGHLY EDUCATED ONES ARE THE WICKED SUD, THEY BEHAVE LIKE AN ANIMAL . THIS MAN SHOULD BE JAIL FOR LIFE ,OR BE HANG.

  5. How could you leave a three year old to stay with an uncle and what were you the parents doing. You parents of this boy are selfish and did not need disturbance if not Daniel was too young to leave away from your care.

    Mind you no one an look after your child like you. It does not matter if it is your brother, sister or friend. I myself refused to leave my children with any member of my family when I left my husband. Me and my children drew together and I watch them become adults and have their own families today.

    O God of Heaven who dwells above the Cherubim’s grant little Daniel a resting pace and forgive his parents

  6. Hello Everyone, I appreciate your comments. I am really surprised and still in shock about this news. I knew him as a philanthropist. The truth remains that God himself knows what really happened. I am not saying this because I want to proof a point or decline to your comments. Naturally, the world we are living in is a wicked world. I can’t judge Ben because “judge not that ye may not be judged” is a word I try to hold on to. Ben is someone I knew as an usher in my church. He was so committed, show love to people and ready to stand by you when you need him. He was someone i really cherish a lot because of the way he put God, church and his family first. Sometimes I see him playing with his 2 kids as friends, take them out a lot to shops, parties and so on. You can easily tell the bond between him and his kids. I have seen him helping people, giving out morning to support and so on. I am still in shock. But if indeed Ben actually committed this, vengeance belong to God. But if he is not or maybe it is the trick of the devil to ruin his life, I pray God hear his heart cry and the cry of his wife. but I know this man as a humble, respectful, loyal and loving man to his family, church and friends. Like I said, I am not saying this to proof a point that he is the best man. The world we live is a wicked world. I “ONLY TRUST GOD” and no one. People do stuffs that you never expected to see in them. And let this be your own prayers too: Lord, lead me not into temptation that will ruin my life, carrier and peace.That’s why it is always important to pray for God’s direction before doing anything. If the mother had prayed about this before taking the son there, I am sure God will speak to her about the evil that’s about to happen. Also, if Ben had prayed about it, God would have revealed to him not to accept the boy in. Things happens in the spiritual but manifest itself at the wrong time and with the right people. please watch and pray and always commit your days before God. I love you all and hope someone will be touched by this that whatever happened, we all have to learn our lessons from this.

    God bless you all and please keep praying for the two families involved. the little boy’s mother and Ben’s family. Do not hate anyone for God is Love. May God keep us all from the trials and temptations hoovering around this world in Jesus Name, amen.
    God bless

  7. R.I.P Daniel.
    Blessing, well said but if you were to say you knew Ben since he was 10yrs old, I may agree with your testimony about Ben. These are one of the problems faces by black community in the UK especially the Nigerian that women did not report their husband violent behaviour to the authority. He must be a violent man to have taken the life of this child. It’s easy to blame the devil for every wrong doing; we forget it is not all that goes to church these days are really Christians. Daniel mother, father and grandmother will all take responsibility for the death of this child because charity begins at home, the child wellbeing should’ve been their first priority before any other plan and they were all in denial of Ben’s violent life.

  8. l am utterly shocked, l knew Ben since 1999 in london and l use to sing in the choir while he would helped out in other department since it was a small church at the time, Ben cannot hurt a fly but if this is true then he may have lost temper and hit the boy l suggest. It is very sad and l am sure he did not intend to do this to his nephew because l know him as a caring person. sometimes things happen in a way we cannot explain. l feel so sad for the boy and for the families involve. Ben is a complete gentleman as at when we use to attend church together back in the days. l am shocked to read this about someone l really know. May Daniel soul rest in peace and l pray peace be restored to both families.

  9. dis is devil’s work tryin to pul down dis man.akoba adaba olorun ma Je Kari.a oni sore da ran.Mr Ben may God forgive u ur sin and ave mercy on you.RIP DANIEL
