A 25-year-old man identified as Godsgift Uweghwerhen, has been arrested for flogging his 3-year-old daughter to death in Aladja community, Udu Local Government Area of Delta State.
The suspect was said to have flogged the child with cane and inflicted bodily injuries on her because she entered his neighbour’s apartment.
It was gathered that the incident happened on Wednesday.
He reportedly fled the scene immediately on noticing that the child had given up the ghost following the merciless beating.
He was, however, arrested by the Aladja Community Vigilante at Ubogo Community and was handed over to the Police in Ovwian/Aladja Division.
When contacted, the Public Relations Officer for Delta State Command, Bright Edafe, confirmed the incident.
