Killing the evil spirit

A mum accused of murdering her 14-month-old daughter was told by an imam her baby was possessed, police said.

Sofina Nikat, 23, was struggling to care for daughter Sanaya and sought guidance from her Fijian parents who told her an imam they consulted said the baby was controlled by an evil spirit, officers said in a court summary.

Nikat initially reported Sanaya had been snatched from her pram by an African stranger who smelled of alcohol in Olympic Park but then later told police she made up the story "because she was scared", court documents revealed.

She then allegedly told police she covered the baby's nose and mouth until she could no longer breathe before she dumped her body into the creek.

The court heard Nikat told police her baby would "cry and growl at the roof" and that she was advised Sanaya had "negative energy".

Both the imam and the demented mother need to be thrown in jail.
