Woman Dies From Dog Bite In Ondo, Owner In Police Custody

A 55-year-old woman, Florence Aladenoye, has been bitten to death by a dog at Alade Idanre area of Ondo State.

Subsequently, the owner of the dog, Afolabi Olafingbesote, 69, has been arrested by detectives and is currently in Police custody.

Men of the Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, CIID, of the State Police Command have waded into the matter.

Vanguard gathered that after the deceased was bitten by the dog, she was rushed to five different hospitals, but was finally referred to the Federal Medical Centre, FMC, Owo, when her condition became critical, where all efforts by the medical personnel to save her life proved abortive.

Vanguard gathered that the deceased, a neighbour to the dog’s owner, was going on an outing when the dog pursued and bit her, then immediately turned back and went home.

A police source said that the owner of the dog admitted that it had not been treated for rabbies in recent time.

Police spokesman, Wole Ogodo, who confirmed the incident, said the owner of the dog was in police custody and that he had made useful statements.

According to him, the remains of the deceased have since been deposited at General Hospital mortuary in the town for autopsy.

He, however, stressed the need for owners of dogs and other domestic animals to always ensure that they were treated, adding that investigation into the matter was in progress. (Vanguard)
