A Nigerian, US-based parents, Kehinde and Titilayo Omosebi have been arrested over the death of their first son, a 15-year-old boy, who reportedly died of starvation. The parents and their two sons were said to have gone on 40 days fasting, which started on July 17 and ended the day their first son died.

Kehinde, who identified himself as a minister with Cornerstone Reformation Ministries, reported the death to the police. When the police found the dead boy, he was “extremely emaciated,” but their second son, an 11-year old boy, was still alive.

According to the Winsconsin State Journal, the second son was so weak that he couldn’t walk out of their apartment on his own and had a hard time talking. He  was holding a Bible and an envelope that contained pamphlets about death.

He also had a handwritten letter to Lawyers of Sauk County Circuit Court with statements like, “The hunger is too much. Please help me now so I may eat, I can’t continue in such a life with no food and If I don’t get food now, I’ll probably die of hunger,” the Journal stated.

The boy told the police that he was allowed only to drink water during the fast.

Meanwhile, when the police found the body of the Omosebi’s 15-year-old son, his backbones and ribs were visible under his skin.

The parents, who have been charged with child neglect, explained that they had to embark on such fast because they needed blessings from God.
