Unbelievable! Couple Allegedly Cuts Off 7-Year-Old Daughter’s Finger, Stuffs Her In Sack, Drops Her By Roadside

The Ogun State Police Command says it has arrested one Nasiru Adeyemo and his wife, Idayat, for allegedly cutting off one of the fingers on the right hand of a seven-year-old girl, Abibat. Abibat is the daughter of Adeyemo from another woman; while Idayat is her stepmother. Police report indicated that the couple probably severed the finger for ritual purposes.

After cutting the finger, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said, the suspects allegedly stuffed the girl into a sack and dumped her in a bush by the roadside at Asabala area, along the Papalanto/Sagamu road.

He said, “The suspects were arrested following a distress call from members of the public that a strange load in a sack was sighted by the roadside at Asabala area along the Papalanto/Sagamu road.

“On the strength of the information, the Divisional Police Officer, Owode Egba Divisional Headquarters, Shehu Alao, led his men to the scene where the load which was inside a white rice sack was untied.

“Surprisingly, it was a seven-year-old girl, with one of her right hand fingers already cut off. She was tied up and put inside the sack and dumped at the roadside since last Friday.”

He said the girl was still alive, and she was quickly taken to the hospital for medical attention.

PRO Oyeyemi said it was when she regained consciousness that she informed the police that her father and stepmother were the ones who chopped off one of her fingers before tying her up and putting her inside the sack, after which they dumped her in the bush, probably to die there.

Meanwhile, the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has ordered the transfer of the case for further investigation and possible prosecution of the suspects.
