A 30-year-old housewife identified as Shukurat Olufowobi, has been arrested for beating her 5-year-old stepson Azeem Olufowobi to death.

The resident of the Oshodi Oke area of Ogijo was arrested after members of the public notified the police of the incident. It was gathered that the boy was beaten with an object that gave him a skull injury that eventually resulted to his death.

The lady’s husband was also accused of hurriedly taking the corpse of the little boy to Ajah in Lagos state where he was secretly buried.

Ogun state police spokesperson, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi who confirmed the incident said;

“Information further revealed that the woman and her husband hurriedly took the corpse of the victim to Ajah in Lagos state where he was secretly buried.

“Upon getting the information, the Divisional Police Officer, Ogijo division chief superintendent of police, Suleman Baba Muhammed quickly mobilized his detectives to the scene where the couple who had started packing their belongings in a bid to run away from the area were promptly arrested.

“Preliminary investigation revealed that the woman has been maltreating the victim whose mother has been separated from the father due to irreconcilable differences.

“The nurse who gave the victim first aid treatment had informed the couple of her observation and was pleaded with by the woman and her friend to lie about the cause of the death of the victim but she refused because it is against the ethics of her profession.

“The couple Ayuba Olufowobi and Shukurat Olufowobi are currently undergoing interrogation at the Ogijo divisional headquarters where they are helping the police in their investigation.”

Ogun Police commissioner, Kenneth Ebrimson has already ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the homicide section of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and prosecution.
