A ten year old girl has been arrested by the police force after she allegedly threw her step brother into a well in Ondo State.
The incident happened at Owode, behind Central Mosque, Akure.
The girl whose name was withheld, was said to have thrown her step brother inside a well because their father showed much love for him.
Ondo Police Commissioner, Bolaji Salami, said the girl threw the baby identified as Usman Abubakar into the well out of annoyance that he got more care from their father.
She was said to have lied that the boy was kidnapped. However Salami said the girl later confessed that her brother was inside the well.
He said the baby’s corpse was later recovered from the well.
