Mother of five sets daughter ablaze in Ogun


A mother of five, Aisha Tijani, has been arrested by Men of Ogun State Police Command for allegedly setting her 10-year-old daughter ablaze.

The suspect was arrested following a report lodged at Mowe Divisional Headquarters by one Moroof Ayinde, who reported that the suspect who lives in the same house with him poured petrol on her little daughter and set her ablaze.

According to him, the woman was upset because the daughter took a phone she (the woman) had seized from one of her children from where she kept it and gave it back to the child, from whom, the phone was seized.

The Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP, Abimbola Oyeyemi told newsmen in Abeokuta that following the report, the DPO Mowe Division, CSP Folashade Tanaruno, quickly moved to the scene with the detectives and got the suspect arrested.

Oyeyemi said the victim, who had been badly burnt, was rushed to the nearest hospital from where she was referred to Olabisi Onabanjo Teaching Hospital for proper medical attention.

“On interrogation, the suspect, who claimed to have been separated from the father of the children, explained to the police that she didn’t know what came over her when she was carrying out the wicked act,” he said.

The PPRO however said the Commissioner of Police, Lanre Bankole, has ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department for further investigation.
