A man, Samuel Sunday, has been detained by the police command in Bayelsa State for allegedly killing two of his children.
Sunday was said to have carried out the deed alongside his brother, Aya Preye by reportedly poisoning the children by giving them the insecticide, Sniper.
The survivor, Godstime, yesterday said it was his father and dad’s brother who gave them the Sniper which killed his two brothers.
The victims named Success (14) and Miracle (12), died after taking the poison in Yenagoa.
Godstime continued, “Our father and his brother tied three of us and gave us Sniper to drink.
“I was told that my brothers are dead I am the only one that survived.”
It was garnered by our sources that Sunday and his wife (the mother of the children) are divorced but the three children were living with their grandmother before the incident.
Meanwhile, the state Commissioner of Police, Aminu Saleh, who paraded the suspect and his accomplice, said the others died before they could be rescued and investigations have commenced on the case.
