The Lagos State Police Command has confirmed the arrest of a woman and her lover for allegedly battering the woman’s two children aged 5 and 2.
The love birds, Akebiara Emmanuel and Busola Oyediran were reportedly arrested by the police following reports by concerned neighbours, who were worried over the constant physical abuse of the minors by their biological mother and her partner.
Following the report, the police stormed the home of the ‘couple’ in the Egbeda/Idimu area of the state and arrested them.
When confronted, Busola debunked the claims of brutalizing her children, saying they fell from a motorcycle and suffered serious injuries.
Speaking on the incident, the spokesperson of the state police command, Benjamin Hundeyin, said the woman and her partner were currently in detention and would be arraigned in court by Monday, January 16.
He added that the biological father of the children had been alerted.
