On Wednesday evening, anguish enveloped the residents of Hallelujah estate in Osogbo, the capital of Osun state. Two crossbreed dogs tragically consumed a five-year-old child, causing immense distress. Subsequently, the dogs turned their aggression towards the child’s mother, injuring her buttock.
The sparse neighborhood’s inhabitants came to her aid in the nick of time.
According to reports, the woman and her young daughter were passing by an unoccupied building when the dogs appeared, tearing them apart. Eyewitnesses recounted the heart-wrenching sight of the child being consumed while her desperate mother attempted in vain to rescue her.
Swift intervention from neighbors eventually saved the mother from the ferocious dogs, which had bitten her repeatedly.
A resident named Sodiq Abass mentioned that the dogs had been left alone in the building for an extended period. This gruesome incident transpired due to the absence of many residents in the vicinity, making it challenging to respond to cries for help.
“The dogs appeared like they wanted to kill the mother after killing her daughter, but for some passers-by who saw the scene and quickly ran to call for help. It is unfortunate that help didn’t arrive on time for the little girl”, he said.
Upon reaching out for comment, SP Yemisi Opalola, the spokesperson for the Osun police command, confirmed awareness of the incident and stated that active efforts are underway to apprehend the homeowner.
