A Chief Magistrate Court sitting in Akure the Ondo State capital has remanded Mrs. Elizabeth Akinola, who allegedly beat her four-year-old daughter, Testimony to death in prison custody.
The 37-year-old mother was remanded in prison following her arraignment before the court today.
She was arraigned on a two-count charge of murder and physical assault of her deceased daughter.
The case has been adjourned till October 9, 2019.
It would be recalled that, the accused person and her newly married husband, Mr. Felix Babalola who is still at large, subjected the late Testimony to torture with an allegation that she was possessed with evil spirit.
The four year old, however gave up the ghost after the last physical torture before she was rushed to the hospital.
Through the help of the Catholic Church where the accused mother did attend, the Police, through the intervention of the leadership of the Nigerian Association of women Journalists, traced mother to Ikare-Akoko where she eloped to hide.
Her, husband, who is not the biological father of the girl has however absconded into the thin air since then.
