A middle-aged woman identified as Omowumi, on Tuesday, thrown her two daughters inside a well in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.
It was gathered that the incident happened in the early hours of Tuesday at Ajorin Street, close to Ibuaje,Osogbo.
The woman, who just returned from Oman called her two daughter- Nimisire and Darasimi- and ordered them to follow her to the well.
She threw the eldest daughter into the well first before doing same to the younger one.
A resident of the community who identified herself as Nafisat, told The Nation that, “the police arrested the woman after the incident. The woman told the mob that held her that she was frustrated. The woman is mentally deranged. She just returned from Oman.”
The spokesperson for Osun State Fire Service, Ibrahim Adekunle, confirmed the incident.
“Efforts are underway to get them out but at the moment, we are yet to get them recovered as the well was full to the brim because this is raining season. The two daughters are Nimisire Saka (5yrs) and Darasimi Saka (8 yrs),” Adekunle said.
Osun State Police Command spokesperson, SP Yemisi Opalola, also confirmed the incident, saying: “The woman is suspected to be of unsound mind.”
