The Ondo State Police Command has launched a probe after a 7-year-old girl was found dead in a well in Shasha, Akure.
The girl's body was discovered in the well on Monday, Nov. 13, days after she went missing.
Adunni Azeez, a friend of the bereaved mother, told Punch that a neighbour was suspected to have been involved in the child's death.
“The mother’s neighbour has been having grudges with the family. From what we learnt, she kidnapped the girl, and her body was later found in the well at Shasha, Akure, along Ondo Road,” Adunni said.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Funmilayo Odunlami, confirmed that suspects have been arrested in relation to the girl's death.
She said, "We have some suspects in custody but we can’t assume without the investigation."
