A middle-aged man, Akilu Alhaji Saidu, has confessed and explained how he beat to death his three-year-old step-daughter, Saratu Yahuza in Katsina state.
Saidu has since been arrested and detained by the Katsina State Police Command.
The incident occurred on the 17th of September when Saidu was said to have dragged her into an uncompleted building in Yankara village of Faskari Local Government.
He allegedly beat, twisted and broke the little three year old girl’s neck.
The Command’s spokesperson, DSP Gambo Isah, who confirmed the development, said one Yahuza Yakubu, purported to be the biological father of the girl, reported the case at the Police Station in Faskari.
Isah said the suspect had since confessed to the crime and during investigation, told the Police investigators that he acted under the influence of psychotropic substances.
Isah said the deceased was rushed to Funtua General Hospital, where a doctor confirmed her dead.
