Heartless!! Woman Kills Grand Daughter By Throwing Her Inside A Well To Humiliate The Mother (Photo)

A heartless grandmother has ended the life of her two-year-old granddaughter by throwing her inside a well in Niger state.

The Police in Niger state on Thursday arrested A 55-year-old grandmother Aisha Ibrahim, for allegedly killing her two-year-old granddaughter at Karaya Fulani Camp in Rafi Local Government Area of the state, according to NewTelegraph.

It was gathered that the woman was trailed and arrested by police detectives attached to Kagara Division while trying to escape to an unknown destination.

Findings have it that she tied her grand child with rope and threw her inside a well in their compound so as to humiliate the mother of the child.

It was learnt that the incident took place when her son, Bello Ibrahim and his wife left their child in her custody to attend a naming ceremony in a neighbouring village.

The suspect and her daughter in law have had a series of misunderstanding since her son married her ta hereby prompting her killing her daughter.

Further checks revealed that the suspect who has been looking for a way to deal her daughter-in-law took advantage of their outing to carry out her evil act.

The grandmother of the deceased who hailed from Funtua Katsina State, told our correspondent on Thursday that since her son’s married his wife there has been a lot of issues that cannot be settled .

Accordingly, she said:-

“I told my husband to tell his son to divorce his wife but he did not listen to me. My daughter in law is fond of insulting and assaulting me all the time and the only way I could pay her back was to tie her daughter with the rope and throw her inside well to die so that she will equally feel the pains and agony I have been through.”

“We have been living in peace as one big family before my son married her, I have 12 children and all of us are living in one compound, she cannot come from somewhere to destroy the family I have suffered for years to keep, it is unacceptable”.

When asked whether she regretted her action, the suspect said “it was temptation I didn’t know when I did it, I can just tell but may Allah forgive me, honestly it was a wicked act that can never be accepted anywhere in the world.”

Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, said the suspect had confessed to the crime and regretted her action.

Abubakar added that she would be arraigned in court after investigation.

Police deny knowledge of Melaye’s alleged kidnap

Police deny knowledge of Melaye’s alleged kidnap


The Nigeria Police Force has denied knowledge of the alleged kidnap of Dino Melaye.

The senator was scheduled to appear in court in Lokoja, Kogi State, yesterday in a case of alleged gunrunning.

Public Relations Officer of the Federal Capital Territory Police Command, Anjuguri Manza, told The Guardian yesterday that no official complaint had been filed on the matter.

The Kogi police command also said it was unaware of the issue.

Senator Ben Murray-Bruce (PDP, Bayelsa East) yesterday tweeted: “I have just been informed by Moses Melaye, @dino_melaye’s brother, that Dino has been abducted by unknown persons in a Toyota Sienna that blocked their car and overpowered them on their way to Kogi to answer to Dino’s court case. Let’s be on the watch out. Will keep you updated.”

Also, Gideon Ayodele, media aide to Melaye, disclosed that armed men in a Sienna car attacked Melaye in Gwagwalada as he journeyed to Lokoja, adding that the senator’s whereabouts remains unknown.

Melaye and dozens of federal lawmakers on Tuesday defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Nigerians on social media reacted to news of the ‘abduction’ with mixed feelings. Some admitted it was true. Many, however, described it as stage-managed, saying it bore similarities with Tuesday’s ‘blockade’ of Senate President Bukola Saraki’s residence by the police and Wednesday’s ‘obstruction’ of Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom’s convoy by protesting youths.

Condemning the alleged kidnap, PDP chieftain and a former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, tweeted: “I wholeheartedly condemn the abduction of @dino_melaye. I implore those that have kidnapped him to return him home safely to his family and loved ones. I urge the Federal Government to do its job and protect the Nigerian people before it is too late.”

Senior Magistrate Sulyman Abdullah meanwhile adjourned the case till August 9, as the prosecution could not open its brief due to the absence of its lead counsel, Alex Izinyon.

Theophilus Oteme, head of the legal department of the Kogi police command, told the court that Izinyon received an emergency call on Wednesday, which made it impossible for him to appear. He therefore applied for an adjournment till September 23 for the commencement of trial, more so, as one of the defendants (Melaye) was not in court.

Lead counsel to Melaye, Mike Ozekhome, represented by Yemi Mohammed, told the court: “I learnt that he (Melaye) was attacked in Gwagwalada on his way to Lokoja to attend his trial and up till now, I have not been able to reach him. I don’t know where he is at the moment.”

In his ruling, Abdullah turned down the application by the prosecution for a long adjournment, saying the Kogi State Administration of Criminal Justice Law does not allow for adjournment beyond two weeks in criminal cases.

He ordered that the bail earlier granted Melaye continue and that the other two accused persons, Nuhu Salihu and Kabiru Seidu, be remanded in police custody.

In a related development, unknown persons abducted the parish priest of Saint Michael Catholic Church, Obajana, Rev. Fr. Leo Michael, Tuesday evening at Irepeni village, Adavi Local Government Area of Kogi State.

The kidnappers have made contact with members of the church and are demanding N8 million ransom.

Police spokesman William Aya confirmed the incident.

21-Year-Old Kenyan Student Raped & Stabbed To Death By Boyfriend’s Stepbrother

Police in Kisumu have arrested a 23-year-old man for allegedly killing his step-brother’s girlfriend.

The suspect, Joseph Ayomo stabbed 21-year-old Beverline, a Kenyatta University student, to death on Wednesday at 3am in Migosi Estate.

Beverline, a Third Year Hospitality and Tourism student, was stabbed in the stomach and head.

The suspect also allegedly stabbed his 32-year-old step-brother, Evans Otieno, in the back and chest. Otieno was rushed to Avenue Hospital for treatment. Health officers at the facility say he is in a stable condition.

Ayomo had stayed at Otieno’s place for three weeks, as he looked for employment.

Central OCPD, Joseph Kiptum, who confirmed the incident said it remains unclear why the suspect killed his brother’s girlfriend.

Ayomo allegedly raped Beverline before killing her. He, thereafter, moved her body into a Toyota Noah car model, which belongs to Otieno. Police, who arrived at the scene, towed the vehicle to Central post.

The woman’s body was moved to to Jaramogi Oginga Odinga Teaching and Referral Hospital mortuary.

Beverline’s mother, Caren Atieno, (pictured) who lives in Kisumu, says she thought her daughter was in school, and was shocked to learn of her death.

Swiss-Nigerian Goalkeeper Osigwe Prime To Challenge Uzoho For Eagles First Choice Spot



The battle for the first choice spot of the Super Eagles will definitely go down the wire as Swiss-Nigerian goalkeeper Sebastian Osigwe has thrown himself into the mix by virtue of his performance so far for Switzerland second division side SC Kriens.

Swiss-Nigerian Goalkeeper Osigwe Prime To Challenge Uzoho For Eagles First Choice Spot

Owngoalnigeria.com erroneously said the 24 year old struggled to get games last season but recent checks prove that he actually kept goal in 29 games last season with ten clean sheets to his name to help SC Kriens gain promotion to the second division.

Spotting jersey number 58, a shirt which he picked in honour of his mother, he has started the season on a sound footing with a man of the match performance in their last weekend game against Lausanne.

Highly rated in Switzerland, he has worked his way up the ladder and has improved tremendously from the young man who failed to make the Nigerian U20 team to the World Youth Championship in 2013.

His form has no doubt put him on a sound footing to challenge for the first spot of the Super Eagles of Nigeria, a position presently owned by Deportivo La Coruna goalkeeper Francis Odinaka Uzoho.
