Reports said she died at the Federal Medical Centre, Owo, where she was rushed to immediately after the attack. It was however learnt that she was taken to five different hospitals before she died at the FMC.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Wole Ogodo, who confirmed the incident said the owner of the dog, Mr. Olofingbasote Afolabi, had been arrested and was being detained at the State Department of Criminal Investigation.
