A 43-year-old man identified as Sanjo and his wife have been arrested for killing their children.
They allegedly buried the children on their farmland.
Commissioner for Women, Children and Social Affairs, Mrs.. Olubukola Olaboopo, who confirmed the arrest of the couple said they have been handed over to the police for investigation.
She vowed that the state government under the leadership of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola will not condone any form of inhuman treatment, irrespective of who is involved.
The wife, in her confessional statement, revealed that she gave birth to five children, out of which four are dead as a result of her husband’s hostility.
The woman confessed further that they decided to kill two of the babies due to poverty while they dumped the third one around Technical Area, Osogbo.
Lamenting how she was subjected to torture and hard labour in the farm by her husband, she stated that the man was fond of beating and tying her down before sexual intercourse.
The woman also confessed that on several occasions, she had been compelled to source sexual partners for her husband, explaining that they had made several abortion attempts on the new baby but all to no avail.
Also, the husband who explained that he married his wife in 2008, admitted that they buried their children on their farm.
“I unintentionally beat our third child to death. I and my wife buried the child on our farmland,” he said.
