A 30-year-old man has allegedly butchered his three children, including a three-month- old baby, in Gorun Bandiremi village, Yeldu Local Government Area of Kebbi State.
Report says the alleged killer is suspected to be insane, a condition that might have driven him to kill his children, Shansu, Fatihu and Sharifah. The report also said that Idi jumped into a nearby well in a suicide attempt, but was brought out by some villagers who rushed him to a psychiatric hospital at Jega, where he is currently being monitored by the police pending when his condition improves to face prosecution.
A top police officer at the State police command said Idi would face murder charges whenever he is certified fit to stand trial.
