The parents of the little girl, Testimony Babalola, who was reportedly flogged to death by her father have been identified and are currently on the run.
Two days ago, Twitter user @YemieFASH shared the shocking story of the unfortunate incident that was said to have happened in Akure.
According to Yemi, a woman had reportedly teken the girl's corpse to the state hospital in Akure but fled with the corpse after the girl was certified dead.
Investigation to identify the woman who had brought her to the hospital and the father began and there seem to have been some form of progress.
On Friday evening, Yemi took to his Twitter page to give an update on the matter.
"UPDATE: We have been able to identify the parents of the little girl, they are currently on the run but I assure you that they will be apprehended very soon. Let me not say much for now," he wrote before following it up with another tweet moments later.
"Her name is Testimony Toke Babalola, her parents have been abusing her like this because they were told she’s possessed. The name of her Father who beat her to death is Mr. Felix Babalola. We will ensure that justice is served."
