Man Arrested for Allegedly Squeezing his Three-year-old Daughter to Death in Lagos.

Lagos State Police have arrested a man, Adamu Haruna, for allegedly squeezing his 3-year-old daughter to death in the Igando area of Lagos State on Wednesday, September 29.

The Nation reports that Haruna, believed to be mentally unstable, however, said he was trying to protect his daughter from attack.

Haruna was said to have suddenly woken up in the early hours of yesterday, told his wife he wanted to go to the toilet and asked that she accompany him. His wife was reported to have told him to go alone.

A neighbour said his wife told him that when her husband returned, he told her to go and have her bath but the woman refused.

"He started beating her, insisting that she obeyed him. When the woman got to the bathroom, she discovered that her husband had emptied a disinfect into her bathwater. She returned to the room and told her husband that she could not have her bath with such water and he continued beating her. She fled the apartment, leaving the sleeping three-year-old girl behind.

"The man came out with the child and held her to his chest as if he wanted to prevent her from an attack. In the process, he squeezed her to death", the neighbour said.

While being questioned by the police, Haruna blamed someone else for the child's death.
