Edo State Police Command have arrested one Mathias Otabor for allegedly flogging his three years old step son to death.

The name of the step-son was given as Destiny Meshack.

Police said the incident occurred at No. 8 Obanosa Street off 2nd East Circular Road, Benin City.

State Police Commissioner, Babatunde Kokumo, said Mathias flogged his step-son with belt and cable wire until he collapsed and died.

He said the corpse has been deposited at the Central Hospital mortuary.

Kokumo spoke when he paraded 76 suspects arrested for various offences ranging from murder, cultism, kidnapping and rape.

Among the suspects paraded was one Friday Moses for impregnating his 13 years old daughter.

It was learnt that it was some youths from Ologbo in Ikpoba Okha Local Government that took him to the police station after they discovered the act.

The victim (names withheld) who is now five months and one week old pregnant said her father started sleeping with her when she was seven.

She stated that her father threatened to kill her if she exposed the sexual exploits.

Her father however denied having carnal knowledge of his daughter.

According to him, “She told the police that I am responsible for her pregnancy and I told the police that I am not but they did not believe me. They started beating me and because of that, I admitted that I did it.

Kokumo said the suspects would soon be charged to court after investigations have been concluded.
