A father in Rimin Gado local government area, Sani Lawan Kofar Gabas has killed his three-year-old daughter for crying too much, Kano state police command alleges.
Magaji Musa Majiya, a Superintendent of Police and spokesperson of the command told journalists on Monday that Kofar Gabas poisoned his daughter with local insecticide known as Otapiapia.
The suspect, who confessed to his crime said he was angered by his daughter because she had been crying incessantly due to a fracture in her leg, Maiya said.
The little girl started vomiting after taking the poison and was rushed to hospital by her father and his brother but she died before receiving any treatment, Majiya added.
The police spokesperson said the suspect will soon be arraigned before a court of competent jurisdiction for trial.
Speaking on behalf of the family, the little girl’s maternal grandfather, Saminu Suleiman said they will make sure that Kofar Gabas is punished for killing his own daughter.
