Kafayat Lawal, 45, was detained by men from the Ogun State Police Command for fatally beating her 17-year-old daughter, Ayomide Adekoya.
According to a statement released by DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, the state police command’s spokesperson, the suspect was apprehended after Dpo Ogijo divisional headquarters CSP Mohammed Suleman Baba received information at about 2:30 p.m. that the suspect secured her two daughters in a room. She inflicted gruesome injuries on them with a broken bottle.

The daughters were rushed to the hospital but unfortunately one of them lost her life.
”Upon the information, the Dpo mobilized his men and moved to the scene where the two victims were rescued and taken to hospital for treatment before one of them gave up the ghost.
The suspect was then arrested and taken to custody. On interrogation, the suspect who claimed to have separated from her husband nine years ago informed the police that her two daughters left home during the Salah and didn’t return till the following day.
This infuriated her, and when she wanted to beat them, people around pleaded on their behalf and she left them, only for them to go out again the following day and passed the night outside. It was the annoyance that made her lock them inside and injured them both with broken bottle.
The older one Blessing Adekoya 19 was injured in the hand, while her younger sister Ayomide was stabbed in the chest and unfortunately gave up the ghost while receiving treatment.”
CP Edward Awolowo Ajogun, the commissioner of police, has directed that the suspect be immediately transferred to the state criminal investigation and intelligence department’s homicide branch for further investigation.
