Amina Agboola death: Father pays tribute to 'princess'

Amina Agboola Amina Agboola died from a ruptured liver, an inquest heard

The father of a two-year-old girl who died after receiving "blunt force trauma" to her stomach at her home has paid tribute to his "little princess".

Amina Agboola, of Yaxley, Cambridgeshire, died on 21 November after being taken to Peterborough City Hospital with serious injuries.

Reuben Agboola paid tribute while thanking members of a Facebook group set up to buy flowers for Amina.

Dean Harris, 19, of Scott Drive, Yaxley, has been charged with murder.

In a message to the group, Reuben Agboola said: "I want to thank everyone for the continuing love, prayer and support for my little princess.

"I am extremely grateful and proud to have her as my child, I believe she is now at a better place."

He added: "Rest in peace my princess."

Amina's mother, Sarah Raqueman, 28, was arrested on suspicion of causing or allowing the death of a child and has been released on police bail.

The two-year-old underwent emergency surgery in hospital after paramedics were called to her home in Scott Drive on 21 November, but died later.

An inquest in Huntingdon heard on Wednesday that Amina had died from a ruptured liver and "blunt force trauma" to her abdomen.

Mr Harris is due before Cambridge Crown Court on 28 February.
