A man in Foumbot, Noun Division of the West region in Cameroon has beaten his 10-year-old daughter to death.
It was gathered that the man carried out the act after his daughter stole the sum of 40,000frs he kept in the house and squandered it in school.
According to the 42-year-old man who fled hostilities of the armed conflict in the North West region alongside his family, the daughter has been doing this countless times.
He told gendarmes while behind bars that his intention was not to kill his daughter but to correct her wrong doing with a cane.
Unfortunately for him the daughter succumbed to the beatings. She died in a health centre where she was rushed to after collapsing in the course of the flogging.
