The suspect identified as Funmilayo Adeyanju was said to have committed the alleged crime at about 4:00pm on Wednesday, May 27, stabbing her child, Emmanuel several times on the head and other parts of the body with a knife.
The innocent child was said to have given up the ghost after writhing in pain and rolling in his blood for a short while as his berserk mother dealt him multiple knife-cuts.
Although no one could ascertain the cause of the alleged crime committed by Funmilayo, HOMELAND NEWS gathered that the child was a product of an alleged incestuous relationship between the woman and her own biological father, which occurred about three years ago.
Confirming the incident, the State Police Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi said that policemen from Ota Division had visited the scene of the crime and taken the corpse of the child to the mortuary.
Police Spokesperson also disclosed that the woman who was immediately arrested by the police put up some strange behaviours when questioned about the alleged crime adding that immediate examination revealed that she is mentally deranged but investigation is still on.
He added that the police have been to the scene to recover the body of the child adding that, the police would work on the state of mind of the woman and we’ll have to seek the help of an expert to know her mental state.
