Father allegedly smashes his one-month-old baby’s skull in Lagos, blames evil spirit

Benedict Anieze, a guy from Lagos state, was arrested for reportedly breaking his one-month-old baby’s skull on the ground and murdering her on the scene.

On Sunday, April 3, the tragedy occurred at their home in the Pipeline neighborhood of Idimu, Lagos State.

Benedict was claimed to have been at home with his wife and infant when he went insane, carrying their child and slamming her to the ground, killing her.

Benedict supposedly lit his house on fire to hide his terrible deed before being apprehended.

SP Benjamin Hundeyin, a spokesman for the Lagos state police command, confirmed the event to reporters, saying that the police and neighbors tracked down the culprit to a house.

“There was no argument between him and his wife. He said he was possessed by evil spirits when he smashed the baby on the ground. He also set the house ablaze and ran away.

The wife cried out and after putting out the fire, they brought her to the station. The police alongside neighbours tracked him down to the place where he was arrested.

The corpse has been deposited at the Yaba General Hospital’s morgue.”

Hundeyin added that the case has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation.
