A 30-year-old housewife, Shukurat Olufowobi is now in Police net for allegedly beating her five-year-old stepson, Azeem Olufowobi to death in Ogun state.

Spokesman of the state Police Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi who made this known said Shukurat, a resident of Oshodi oke area of Ogijo was arrested on Sunday (February 2nd, 2020) following an information received from members of the public who informed police at Ogijo division that the deceased boy was beaten with an object on his head.

He noted that it was reported that the beating gave the late boy a skull injury that eventually resulted to his death.

Oyeyemi 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.

He added that following the report, the Divisional Police Officer in-charge of Ogijo Police division, Suleman Muhammed quickly mobilized his detectives to the scene where the couple who have started packing their belongings away from the area were promptly arrested.

The Spokesman said preliminary investigation revealed that the woman has been maltreating the victim whose mother has separated from the father due to irreconcilable differences.

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

He added that the couple, Ayuba Olufowobi and Shukurat Olufowobi are currently undergoing interrogation at Ogijo divisional headquarters and they were helping the police in their investigation.

The state Police Commissioner, Kenneth Ebrimson according to the Spokesman, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the homicide section of the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation and prosecution.
