A man identified as John Depuun who slaughtered his 9 months old daughter and walked majestically to the police station on Tuesday in Mbangur, Benue state, as a sacrifice to God, was pictured walking majestically to the police station.
The suspect snatched the baby from his wife, took her to a bush where he killed her. He was later arrested by policemen attached to the Tse-Agberagba Division.
During interrogation, Depuun admitted to killing the baby, but said he did as instructed by God. According to him: ”it is my sheep and I decided to sacrifice it to God as demanded of me.I have not laid my hands on anyone’s child ,and as such should not be condemned.”
He also denied speculations that he is battling mental illness.
However, his family alleged his change in attitude in recent days. They revealed that he had informed them on his decision to deepen his involvement in the Confraternity of the Most Holly Rosary, a society in the Catholic Church.
This is cruel and inhumane.
