A man with nine kids, Adekunle Adewusi, is in big trouble for throwing the corpse of his child inside a canal. Adekunle has decided to make the remains of his four year old child disappear inside the canal but he was unlucky to have been caught.

He has appeared before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court. The Prosecutor, Sgt. Kehinde Omisakin, said that Adekunle committed the offences on February 7 at about 10. 00 p.m.

Omisakin said that the corpse of the four-year-old Rachel was found inside a canal close to the residence of the accused.

“The accused in his statement claimed that the deceased was pushed on a sharp object by her playmates and because the wound was not properly treated, it developed into a big issue. Instead of taking the child to the hospital, he decided to do a home remedy which eventually led to her death.

“And instead of depositing the remains at the mortuary, the accused dumped her body in a canal close to his residence. The deceased is the sixth child of the accused and has eight other siblings,” she said
