    Nigerian parents of a 15-year-old boy are facing felony child neglect charges after their son died of starvation while the family was fasting in an alleged religious practice in the United State.

    The parents, Titilayo and Kehinde Omosebi were arrested by the Reedsburg Police in Wisconsin, US, after their son, Ayanfe, starved to death during the fast. The teenager’s father, 49-year-old Kehinde Omosebi, according to www.wbtv.com appeared in court Tuesday, where he was officially charged with two counts of neglecting a child. His wife, 48-year-old Titilayo Omosebi, did not appear in court. A criminal complaint filed Tuesday claims Kehinde Omosebi failed to provide food for his 15-year-old and 11-year-old sons. The father went to the police station Monday to report the 15-year-old, Ayanfe Omosebi, had died. Police officers reporting to the family’s home described the 15-year-old’s body as extremely emaciated. They say there was no food or eating utensils in the home. The 11-year-old boy was in poor health when police arrived. He was emaciated and had a hard time walking and talking, police say. The criminal complaint states he had to be carried out of his bedroom because he was unable to walk on his own.

    Never heard of a religion that requires one to starve their children.
