The Sabo Police Station on Tuesday arraigned a 49-year-old
pastor, Moyo Martins, before a Yaba Chief Magistrate’s Court for
allegedly cutting off the fingers of a two-year-old child, Saidat
Faleye.
The incident happened on Olumo Street, Iwaya Onike, Yaba,
Lagos State.
It was learnt that the mother of the victim, Mrs. Bola Faleye,
had left her in the care of Martins on Thursday, when she wanted
to take her bath.
After she was gone, the child and the suspect were said to have
been together in his room.
About five minutes later, our correspondent gathered that the child
suddenly let out a loud shriek of pain which drew the attention of
neighbours.
They reportedly alerted her mother who equally rushed to the scene
in panic. She found her child’s ring and little fingers chopped off.
It was alleged that Martins sawed off the fingers in his room.
The kid was said to have been rushed to a hospital within the area
for treatment.
The suspect initially denied knowing anything about the incident.
However, upon his arrest, he allegedly confessed that he did it in
error and pleaded to be forgiven.
He was arraigned on one count, which reads, “That you, Moyo
Martins, on March 6, 2014, about 1.10pm, at 5, Olumo Street,

2 years.”

punishable under Section 243 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State,
Nigeria, 2011.
