The Delta State Police Command has commenced a manhunt to arrest one Sankey Ovemureye for allegedly killing his six-year-old daughter, Abigail Stanley.

In a statement on Sunday, the command’s spokesperson, Superintendent Edafe Bright said that the incident happened on Saturday and was reported by the brother to the fleeing suspect.

The statement read: “The DPO on receipt of the complaint, detailed operatives who went to the scene at Uviama New Layout, Agbarho Ughelli North LGA, and recovered the corpse of the little child whose head was smashed several times on the wall. The corpse was recovered and deposited at the mortuary.

“The father, who is the principal suspect, is currently at large.”

The state’s Commissioner of Police, Olufemi Abaniwonda, was said to have ordered “a serious manhunt for the fleeing suspect” and assured the public that the suspect would be arrested and justice would be served.

Abaniwonda was also said to have urged anyone with useful information that could lead to the arrest of the suspect to report to the nearest police station.

It was reported in February that a 70-year-old man, Theophilus Udeh, was arrested for killing his son over food in Eziama Lokpaukwu in Umunneochi Local Government Area of Abia State.
