Two siblings have reportedly killed their one-week-old baby sister in Edo State.
It was gathered that the incident happened on Tuesday in the Ofunwegbe Community, Ovia North-East Local Government Area of the state.
According to reports, when the kids’ mother raised the alarm that her older children – an eight-year-old girl and her six-year-old brother – have killed their one-week-old sister, members of the community initially thought it was a prank.
“The people initially felt it was just a joke, but they were shocked to discover the incident was true after the two children were caught and beaten.
“When questioned they confessed to have killed the little baby,” one witness said.
The children have reportedly been handed over to the Police for further investigations.
