A father in Benue has been arrested by operatives after he killed his daughter to offer as a ‘sacrificial lamb’ to God.
The Benue father has been identified as John Depuun, and he allegedly snatched his infant daughter from his wife and took her to a bush in Mbangur, Tse-Agberagba, Konshisha LGA, Benue state, where he killed her.
The father confessed to the killing, saying he did it as directed by God.
He said: “It is my sheep and I decided to sacrifice it to God as demanded of me.I have not laid my hands on anyone’s child and as such, should not be condemned.”
Family members allege that he is mentally unstable but he has denied that.
