A two-year-old baby girl of Kafumukache Village in Kalumbila District, has been killed in cold blood by her cousin.
North-western province Commissioner of police, Elias Chushi, confirmed the incident which happened on Friday around 15:00 hours and identified the deceased as Loveness Kabobo.
Mr Chushi identified the suspect as Gideon Mubemba aged 23, who is believed to be mentally deranged. He hit the girl on the head using an axe handle.
He explained that some family members tried to rescue the child but in the process, another person was also hacked and sustained an injury.
“People managed to grab the child, who sustained a deep injury and was later rushed to Solwezi General Hospital where she was admitted but died later,” he said.
Mr Chushi said that the suspect had been apprehended while the body of the girl was in Solwezi hospital mortuary awaiting a postmortem.
