The Federal Capital City (FCT) Police Command has begun investigation into the death of a woman and her two-year-old daughter, whose mutilated bodies were found in an uncompleted rest room of a school in the early hours of Saturday, October 8, 2016 at Government Reserved Area (GRA) near Yoruba Mosque in Mpape, Abuja.

The late Mrs. Omagu Clement Ogar, who hailed from Ijegu, Yala Local Council of Cross River State, was found with a piece of foam stuffed in her mouth. There were also machete cuts on her neck side and abdominal region with her daughter, Blessing, also lying dead beside her.

The restroom, where they were both found, is only within 20 feet from Omagu’s home, where she had lived with her husband, Iyaji Dominic Ogar.

Dominic, a farmer who hails from Itega-okpudu (Okpoma), Yala Local Council, Cross River State, is currently in police custody after surrendering himself to the Mpape Police Station, near the Berger Quarry.

He was transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) office in Abuja, where he has been in custody.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), FCT Command, Anjuguri Manza, told The Guardian that investigations were currently ongoing and no further comment could be made.
