Monsurat Olusanya has been arrested by men of the Ogun state police command, for inflicting various degrees of injuries on her four-year-old niece, Fathia Ogundimu.
It beats the imagination how Monsurat, a 35-year-old mother of three could set aside her motherly side and inflict so much physical pain on a four-year-old child.
Her arrest followed a complaint from a resident of Tiluwalase community, in Owode Ijako, to the Sango Police Division.
The complainant who came with the girl, reported the case on October 18, 2019, insisting the police intervene before the little girl dies from the series of abuse meted on her by her aunty.
Information had it that Olusanya had in her latest abuse, inflicted heavy body injuries on the toddler with a hot knife after she had allegedly spilt a pot of soup.
Not satisfied, the suspect had used her teeth to bite the little girl on her stomach and lips.
On interrogation, she admitted to being responsible for the injuries on the body of the victim but pleaded with the police to be lenient with her, claiming that the devil pushed her to do it.
The victim has been taken to hospital for medical treatment. The suspect is currently being detained at Aango division while the biological parents of the victim have been contacted to come and take custody of their daughter.
