Father Kills Daughter, Offers Her As ‘Sacrifice To God’
John Depuun claims he heard the voice of God, so he took his infant into the bush and literally offered her as a ‘sacrificial lamb’ by killing her.
The father allegedly snatched his daughter from his wife’s arms and took her to a bush in Mbangur, Tse-Agberagba, Konshisha LGA, Benue state, where he committed the terrible act.
He confessed to have killed the child after he was arrested by the police and claimed he was only following God’s direction.
“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.” John explained.
Family members allege that he is mentally unstable, an allegation he has denied.
The police say that they will prosecute John after investigating the alleged murder.
