A man is on the run from the law after being accused of beating his daughter to death because she misbehaved, police in Nigeria said.

Ogun State Police said it has placed Bisi Onigogo, on their wanted list for allegedly beating his daughter, Yemi, to death.

According to the initial police investigation, Onigogo was upset about the misconduct of his daughter when he decided to beat her. The father fled from the city after realizing that his daughter was dead.

Police have launched a manhunt for the suspect, but so far, he has evaded arrest.

Earlier this month, a man told police that he beat two women to death with a hammer because he believed they were witches, police in New York said. Carlos Alberto Amarillo, 44, called 911 early on Wednesday, and reported that two women were murdered.

“I killed them because they are witches,” Amarillo told the 911 dispatcher. “I want the police to kill me. I killed with a hammer,” he also said. When police arrived at the house, Amarillo was holding a Bible.

Police found the body of his girlfriend, Estrella Castaneda, 56, face up on a bed with a pillow over her face. The rubber of a hammer was found next to her body. On the floor in a back room, police found the victim’s daughter, Lina Castaneda, 25, with head injuries, and a hammer was next to her body.

The 7-year-old daughter of Lina Castaneda was found unharmed in bed in her mother’s room. Amarillo said he believed the victims were witches, were doing voodoo and they cast spells on him.

Amarillo was charged with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree murder and one count of fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
