Photo: Nigerian Lady Arrested For Throwing Her 12-Day-Old Baby Into Pit Latrine In Ogun State


A 21 years old Nigerian woman identified as Amudalat Taiwo has been reportedly arrested by the Nigerian Police Command in Ogun State for throwing her 12-day-old baby into a pit latrine.

It was gathered that Amudalat was arrested following a complaint lodged at the police station by her landlord, identified as Oshunshina Olawale who reported that one of his tenants at 28, Isheri Street, Ilaro, Yewa South local government, went to the toilet on the early morning of 20th of June, where the tenant heard the cry cry of a baby, according to the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Ogun State Police Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi.

On the strength of the complaint, the DPO in charge of Ilaro Divisional Police Headquarters, CSP Opebiyi Sunday, led detectives to the scene where the latrine was broken and the baby ferried out of the pit, while investigations later confirmed that the baby was birthed by Taiwo that was immediately arrested.

While speaking on Amudalat's arrest, the PPRO said;

“On interrogation, she claimed that she was an orphan and married to one Taiwo Owolabi, who had already married another woman with five children. She stated further that the husband was not taking care of her and the baby.

“And since she has no means of catering for the newly-born baby, she decided to do away with her.

“The said husband had been arrested for failure to provide necessary support while the case has been transferred to Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department on the order of the Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, for further investigation and possible prosecution of the suspects,” she added.

While noting that the baby has been stabilized and is presently at the Stella Obansanjo Motherless Babies Home in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital.
