The Ogun State Police Command has arrested one Andrew Koku of Ayedere in Obada area of Abeokuta for intentionally killing his six month old baby girl by name Precious Koku.

The suspect was arrested following a complaint from the mother of the baby Omowumi Teleda who lodged complaint at Adigbe Divisional Headquarters that she went out briefly to see her first child she had with her ex-husband leaving the six month old baby behind with the Father, only for her to come back and meet the dead body of the child.

She explained further that the baby was hale and hearty before she left home and within an hour of her outing, the baby has dropped dead.

This made her to strongly suspect her husband who happened to be the only person with the baby.

Upon her complaint, the DPO Adigbe Division CSP Sunday Oladipo detailed Police Detectives to the scene where the suspect was arrested on the 24th of December.

On interrogation, the suspect confessed to the crime but claimed to be suspecting that his wife wanted to leave him for her ex-husband and that if that should happened, he will not be able to take care of the baby and that was the reason why he decided to eliminate the child.

The Commissioner of Police CP Ahmed Iliyasu has directed that the case be transferred to Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for proper investigation and prosecution of the Suspect.
