A 25-year-old man has been arrested by the police for allegedly flogging his three-year-old daughter to death in the Aladja community, in the Udu Local Government Area of Delta State.

According to Punch Metro, the suspect was infuriated when he saw his daughter coming out of the room of one neighbor.

Uweghwerhen pounced on her and reportedly used a cane to beat her, inflicting injuries on the victim’s body.

Uweghwerhen’s daughter was said to have died as a result of the beating and upon realizing the gravity of his action, he fled from the scene.

Luck, however, ran out of the victim’s father when vigilantes arrested him at Ubogo community and handed him over to policemen in Ovwian/Aladja Division.
