Five year old Aliyah Masaku who was attacked by three dogs owned by the landlord of her residence in Ikorodu has died. Her family members say she died yesterday evening after suffering severe pains from the injuries she sustained during the attacks.
On Monday February 20th, four of the little girl's landlord's fifteen dogs broke out from their kernel and attacked her after allegedly being starved for weeks by their caregiver.
One of the dogs named Rover first attacked her, then dragged her to the back of the house before two other dogs joined in the attack. Rover has been killed by youths in the area.
Aliyah was rushed to the Ikorodu General Hospital where she had a surgery. She was later transferred to the Lagos state University Teaching Hospital LASUTH where she died at about 6pm yesterday.
