Along with the 15-year-old, an 11-year-old child was also discovered emaciated but still alive.

The boy’s father, Kehinde Omosebi, reported the boy’s death to the police himself earlier in the day. He told officers that the boy died on August 31.

According to the report, RPD had to force entry into the house where they found the deceased boy and his brother. Their mother, Titilayno Omosebi, was also emaciated but reportedly refused treatment on religious grounds.

Omosebi told police that he was a “minister” associated with a nearby church and that he and his family had been on a religious fast since July 19. Police found no food in their apartment upon searching.
