As I type this, my eyes are heavy and my heart is broken.
An innocent child has lost her live in the most heartbreaking way ever — she was flogged and tortured to death by her own father.
The ugly incident happened in Akure, Ondo state, Nigeria and according to Nigerian socialite, Oluyemi Fasipe, who shared the tragic news on Twitter, the innocent little girl died after being rushed to the state hospital, Akure.
I was just called that this child was allegedly beaten to death by the father. Unfortunately the corpse was taken away immediately from state hospital Akure children emergency room, I am going there now to make further enquires. This is so disheartening. 😡☹️😭 pic.twitter.com/8ODOJop5fP

Why anyone would want to harm a child, let alone his own child is beyond me. The police have been notified and search is on for the perpetrator of this evil act. We pray he is found, arrested and brought to justice.
