Operatives of the Ogun state Police Command have arrested a - 45 - year old woman, Kafayat Lawal, for beating her - 17 - year old daughter Ayomide Adekoya to death and injuring another.

The incident happened in Ogijo area of Sagamu, Ogun state, Southwest of Nigeria on Tuesday, this week.

The woman was said to have locked her two daughters in a room and in a fit of rage, attacked them with broken bottle, injuring them gravely for sleeping outside during the Salah celebration.

Although, Police operatives from Ogijo divisional headquarters led by Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP), Mohammed Suleman Baba, did storm the scene at about 2;30 pm same day, rescued the two daughters from the savage attack and rushed them to a hospital but one of them died following the lethal injury inflicted on her.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who disclosed this on Friday said the woman was arrested and taken to police custody.

"The suspect locked her two daughters in a room where she beat and injured them with broken bottle. 

"Upon the information, the Dpo mobilized his men and moved to the scene where the two victims were rescued and taken to hospital for treatment before one of them gave up the ghost. 

"The suspect was then arrested and taken to custody. On interrogation, the suspect who claimed to have separated from her husband nine years ago informed the police that her two daughters left home during the Salah and didn't returned till following day. 

"This infuriated her, and when she wanted to beat them, people around pleaded on their behalf and she left them, only for them to go out again the following day and passed the night outside.
