I Want Justice, Mother Of Pupil Found Dead In Septic Tank Cries Out


Mother of the two-year old pupil found in a septic tank in a Lagos nursery and  primary school has cried out to the authorities to bring those who killed her son to  book.

After three weeks of fruitless search, the two-year old boy, Uchechukwu Nwanzo, was  found dead in a septic tank in his school, King of King’s Nursery and Primary  School, Okota, Lagos State, Nigeria. When the body was removed, the head was  missing.

Speaking with P.MN.EWS, the distraught mother of the victim, Mrs. Florence Nwanzo,  said she was convinced that her child was killed before he was dumped in the  school’s septic tank.

” I want the authorities to intervene in the matter and investigate the  circumstances surrounding the death of my son. I also want the culprits punished,”  she said.

Narrating the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of her child, she said:  ”When I went to pick my child from school, he was nowhere to be found but I found  his school bag and lunch box in one of the classrooms.”

The matter was immediately reported at the Okota Police Station where the police,  assisted by other members of the community launched a manhunt for the missing child.
