A woman has been arrested for allegedly killing a 2-year-old boy in Lagos.
According to reports, the shocking incident happened on Wednesday, 12th December, 2018, as the young son of one Mr Promise Samuel from Ikono Local Government, Akwa Ibom State – was brutally murdered in cold blood by a co-tenant identified as Ms. Chineye Ndubuife from Anambra State.
The suspect who is cooling off in the cell at Tolu Police station in Apapa, Lagos has allegedly confessed to the crime.
According to Marshal Udoh, the suspect narrated how she sent a child to call Wisdom (the deceased) from their room where he was with his nursing mother.
While Wisdom was with the suspect’s child and her elder sister’s child, the co-tenant sent the other children to go and buy Indomie and reportedly asked Wisdom to stay back when he wanted to follow them.
Following the departure of the two little children, Ms Chineye Ndubiife, a mother of one took the Wisdom to the backyard where she allegedly hit the child’s head on the wall after which she used big stone and hit Wisdom’s head severally which led to the boy’s death.
