A yet-to-be identified little girl was allegedly beaten to death by her father in Akure, Ondo State capital, on Wednesday, August 21, 2019.
It is reported that the little girl was rushed to the children emergency ward of the Ondo State hospital, Akure, where she was confirmed dead.
A resident and social activist who shared the story with on social media said he received a distress call about the ugly incident in his area.
He, however, disclosed that the suspect had ran away with the corpse before his arrival at the hospital, even without documentation.
“I was just called that a little child was allegedly beaten to death by the father. Unfortunately the corpse was taken away immediately from state hospital Akure children emergency room. I am going to make further enquires. This is so disheartening.
“I have reached out to the doctor on duty, he said the woman who brought the child to the hospital grabbed the corpse and ran out of the hospital immediately the child was certified dead. She was not documented before she left. If anyone knows the baby, please call my attention”, he said.
Efforts to reach the Ondo State Police Spokesman, DSP Femi Joseph, for comments were unsuccessful. He was yet to reply text messages sent to his phone as at press time.
