The wicked father and the stepmother were said to have been handed over to the police immediately.
This is how Sapere-Obi captured it on Facebook:
"Worse case of child abuse I have ever seen. This child was brought into CHEW (children emergency) FMC Yenagoa dead. What a father and his wife (victim’s step mom) could do to a child.
I hope these people will not find rest even in their graves. What manner of wickedness is this?”
The state police command, in a statement, has confirmed the incident and the arrest of the man and his wife and would be charged to court at the conclusion of investigations.
