A 25-year-old man, Godsgift Uweghwerhen, has been arrested for allegedly flogging his three-year-old daughter to death in the Aladja community, in the Udu Local Government Area of Delta State.
OHAFIATV News learnt through a PUNCH report that Uweghwerhen was at home with his family members and neighbours when he saw his daughter coming out of the room of one of his neighbours.
Uweghwerhen, who became annoyed by his daughter’s action, pounced on her and reportedly used a cane to beat her, inflicting injuries on the victim’s body.
Uweghwerhen’s daughter was said to have died as a result of the beating and upon realising the gravity of his action, fled from the scene.
Luck, however, ran out of the victim’s father when vigilantes arrested him at Ubogo community and handed him over to policemen in Ovwian/Aladja Division.
Contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe, confirmed the incident in a text message on Thursday.
