Benedict Anieze, a guy from Lagos state, was arrested for reportedly breaking his one-month-old baby’s head on the ground and murdering her on the scene.

On Sunday, April 3, the tragedy occurred at their home in the Pipeline neighbourhood of Idimu, Lagos State.

Benedict was claimed to have been at home with his wife and infant when he went insane, carrying their kid and slamming her to the ground, killing her.

Benedict supposedly lit his house on fire to hide his terrible deed before being apprehended.

SP Benjamin Hundeyin, a spokesman for the Lagos state police command, confirmed the event to reporters, saying that the police and neighbours tracked down the culprit to a site in the region, where he was caught.

“He and his wife have never had a quarrel.” When he smashed the infant on the ground, he said he was possessed by demonic spirits. He also set fire to the home and fled.

The woman screamed, and they took her to the station after putting out the fire. He was traced down by the police and his neighbours to the location where he was apprehended.

The body has been sent to the mortuary at the Yaba General Hospital.”

The matter has been sent to the State Criminal Inquiry Department for additional investigation, according to Hundeyin.
