Two-year-old girl beheaded in Minna

A two-year-old girl was on Saturday, beheaded by unknown persons in Minna, Niger State. News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the victim’s corpse was discovered in an uncompleted building near her family residence in Tunga area of the town. The victim, identified as Ummul-khairu Mohammad, is believed to have been lured into the uncompleted building, while playing with other children in the neighborhood about 10am.

Her mother, Malama Fati Mohammed, 22, said the deceased was her first child. Before the unfortunate incident, I prepared the child for the day’s trip to an Islamic school which both of us attended. Subsequently, I realised she had poured water on her blouse and I was forced to find a new dress for her. But she sneaked out to her usual playground, only for one of her playmates to come back home with her pant.
Mrs Mohammed said the playmate informed her that a boy gave the deceased’s underwear to her and a search party was organised immediately. She said a neigbour later informed her that the lifeless body of her daughter had been discovered, adding that she went to the scene of the incident where she met her husband.

She said her daughter had since been buried in accordance with Islamic rites after the police released the corpse to the family for burial. Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Richard Oguche, confirmed the incident, pointing out that the police had commenced investigations into the case and that the perpetrators would soon be arrested. Oguche advised parents to always care for their children and report suspicious persons to the law enforcement agents in order to curtail criminal activities in the society.
