Men of the Ogun State police command have arrested a 45-year-old woman, Kafayat Lawal, for beating her 17-year-old daughter, Ayomide Adekoya, to death.
The suspect was arrested on Tuesday, July 27, following a tip-off that the suspect locked her two daughters in a room where she beat and injured them with a broken bottle.
The police operatives rushed to the scene where the two victims were rescued and taken to hospital for treatment. The suspect was then arrested and taken into custody.
On interrogation, the suspect, who claimed to have separated from her husband nine years ago, informed the police that her two daughters left home during the Salah and didn’t returned till the following day.
This infuriated her, and when she wanted to beat them, people around pleaded on their behalf and she left them, only for them to go out again the following day and passed the night away from home.
In annoyance, she locked her two daughters inside and injured them both with broken bottle.
The older one, Blessing Adekoya,19, was injured in the hand, while her younger sister, Ayomide, was stabbed in the chest. She subsequently gave up the ghost while receiving treatment.
