Man Beats Only Child to Death Over Persistent Crying in Osun

By Saka Idowu Eletu

The Osun State Government announced on Sunday that a man in Osogbo, the state capital, was detained for reportedly beating his child to death.

In a statement, Olubukola Olaboopo, the state Commissioner for Women, Children, and Social Affairs, said the 43-year-old suspect, who lived in the Alekuwodo region, had been handed over to the police.

Government personnel moved in and apprehended the culprit, according to Olaboopo, who said the ministry learned about the crime through a source.

The statement quoted Sanjo as saying he got married to his wife in 2008 and they had five children.

“It was the third child that I beat unintentionally to death.

“My wife left the child with me and she started crying. I did all I could to placate her, but she kept crying. Something just came upon me and I beat the two months old baby to death. My wife and I buried the child on our farmland,” he added.

But the statement said Sanjo’s wife, while being interrogated, claimed that four of their five children had died, leaving them with only the last child.

She explained that she conspired with her husband to kill two of the children due to poverty, while they dumped one child around the Osogbo Technical School area.

Olaboopo warned that the state government would not condone acts of violence and child abuse, vowing that anyone caught would face the wrath of the law.
