Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni on Wednesday said 10 persons had been arrested in connection with the suspected ritual killing of a four-year-old girl whose throat was slit and body dumped behind her parent’s window at Iwaya, Lagos.

During a media briefing in Lagos Owoseni, had described the incident as sad.

Further speaking on the incident, the Police commissioner said.

“A sad incident happened this morning when the Divisional Police Officer at Iwaya was alerted after Mr Taiwo Sulaiman and his wife came with the dead body of a four-year-old girl.

“When questioned, they asserted that the child went with two of her siblings to pray at the mosque at1:00pm and since then, she had not been seen.

“After searching thoroughly for the girl, her dead body with a slit throat was found behind her parent’s window,  close to an Ogun shrine in the compound.

“The corpse had been recovered with the knife used to commit the murder and 10 persons are presently in custody for interrogation, including the parents.

“Investigation, however, revealed elements of conspiracy in the matter. We will continue to update you as the investigation continues.

“We have deployed heavily into the area which is densely populated to prevent any form of jungle justice,” Owoseni added.

Condemning the act, the police commissioner said people have thrown away their moral values.

He, therefore, added that the public should provide information that would assist in the investigation, adding that residents living around the shrine could not claim ignorance of the rituals being carried out at the site.
