The man identified as John Depuun, snatched his daughter from the back of his wife, took her to a bush and then slaughtered her.
This horrific incident happened on Tuesday at Mbangur, in Benue State.
Immediately he carried out the act, villagers held him and dragged him to a police staion. When asked why he did that, he said;
“It is my sheep and I decided to sacrifice it to God as demanded of me. I have not laid my hands on anyone’s child and as such, should not be condemned.”
