Police have arrested a woman identified as Chineye Ndubiife, for murdering Wisdom, the 2-year-old son of her neighbour, Promise Samuel, in Lagos.
The incident happened, on Wednesday, December 12, 2018, at 70 Lawani Street, Alakoto, Olodi Apapa.
The suspect who is presently in detention at Tolu Police station revealed how she sent a child to call Wisdom from their room.
Ndubiife, a mother of one, then took him to the backyard where she hit his head against the wall, before hitting his head again with a big stone, leading to his death.
Consequently, she dumped the child’s corpse in the toilet, where Mr Samuel later found him.
Asked why she killed the boy, Ms Ndubuife disclosed that her intention was to inflict severe injury on him so that his father would spend money on treating him.
