Police arrest mother of girl beaten to death


The Ondo State Poiice Command said on Wednesday that it had arrested one Mrs Babalola, for alleged involvement in the killing of her daughter, Testimony Babalola, in Akure.

Four-year-old Testimony was allegedly beaten to death by her parents last week Wednesday for possessing evil spirits.

After the girl had been confirmed dead by the doctor, Babalola fled with the lifeless body of the girl.

However, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr. Femi Joseph, said on Wednesday that Babalola had been arrested, adding that Testimony’ father was still on the run.

He said , “We arrested the wife on Monday, but we are yet to arrest the father.  But I can assure you that he will soon be arrested. Our investigation is still ongoing.”
