Man Who Killed 2 Year Old Nigerian Girl for “Soiling Herself” Jailed for Life in the UK

Amina Agboola & Dean Harris - August 2014 - BN News - BellaNaija.com 01
The man who killed the 2-year-old daughter of a Nigerian man Reuben Agboola, Amina in November 2013 has been sentenced to life in prison at the Cambridge Crown Court, England.

26 year old Reuben Agboola had Amina with Sarah Racqueman. When Reuben and Sarah split, he hardly saw his daughter and a year later officers told him that little Amina had been killed.

The Independent UK reports that 20-year Dean Harris who was dating Amina’s 29-year-old mother Sarah, killed Amina after becoming frustrated at her soiling herself.

Harris killed Amina Agboola by kicking her so hard she was thrown six feet across the room and ruptured her liver.

The force of the blow was severe that it tore her liver in two. According to paramedics, they found her body lying “like a rag doll”.

In a detailed confession letter, Harris admitted to manslaughter but was convicted of the child’s murder. He will spend a minimum of 17 years in prison.

At the sentencing, Reuben Agboola said; “I am pleased with the sentence Dean Harris has received today. However the grief feels like it has no end. I think about Amina constantly. I still cry everyday.

I go through the motions of living but inside I am somewhere else thinking about my daughter all the time. No one understands the pain except those people who are experiencing it.

My heart reaches out to every parent on earth who is suffering the loss of a child.”

Amina’s mum and Harris had been dating for just five months. She was cleared by a Jury in June for causing or allowing the death.  She however got a suspended sentence earlier in the month.

Reuben claims Sarah had been warned by social workers of Harris’ “furious” ways.

RIP Amina.

    What a beautiful child. Rip little Amina. The father should take comfort in knowing that the killer is going to be on almost everyone’s hit list while in prison. He will be praying for solitary confinement on a daily basis.

    It seems that this type of murder is very common and by this, I mean where a boyfriend kills the child of the woman he is dating. My advice to single women with children is to not leave your child alone with a man that you are dating that is not their father; especially, a young man THAT YOU HAVE ONLY BEEN DATING FOR A SHORT WHILE. They tend to have very little patience for your child(ren) and feel zero connection to them. And by children, I mean all minors from 0 to 18 years of age.

      I am telling you. Cant these people have a little patience to study a person before leaving your most precious thing in the hands or in the care of another. You cant leave your credit card with the man, you now leave your child with him? What is all this?!

    @ao, truly, there are a lot more cases like this than are usually reported by mainstream media.

    Little children are very vulnerable targets for certain twisted individuals who prey on their even more vulnerable mothers. I’m very glad to see this man got the prison sentence he deserved and once word gets out that he’s a child-murderer… life in jail will be miserable.

    When I read this story last week of how the force of the kick from this man led to this poor girl’s liver splitting into two…my heart totally broke! How could a person act so cruel to a fragile minor, I cant even imagine…

    Crazy man. How would Amina’s mum subject her daughter to herEVIL boyfriend. He must be racist and a sick man. Please be responsible with who you leave your kids with, people are so WICKED these days. End times!

      He might not be racist. But he is definitely a sick person.
