The social advocate who posted graphic photos of the little girl further said there’s an N100, 000 reward for anyone with useful infomation on the parents of the child.
His tweets read:
“This child was allegedly beaten to death by the father. Unfortunately, the corpse was taken away by the mother who brought her immediately she was certified dead at the State hospital in Akure last night.
The medical officers on duty were unable to document them as they rushed to save the child first.
We, (Social Intervention Advocacy Foundation, SIAF) will be offering N100k to anyone with leads and info on the parents of the Child. The cash will be made available upon the successful arrest of the parents. We will even do more to encourage your active citizen drive. We all must take this up.
“The @PoliceNG are on the look out for the childs’ parent, it’s difficult to trace them bcos the mother who brought the child to the hospital was not documented as Doctors on duty were rushing to save the child first. Pls contact the PPRO (08060159998) if you av any useful info.”

I have reached out to the doctor on duty, he said the woman who brought the child to the hospital grabbed the corpse and ran out of the hospital immediately the child was certified dead. She was not documented before she left. If anyone knows the baby, please call my attention. pic.twitter.com/DZjpdTT15D
