A 25-year-old woman in Sabon Barkin, Tudun Wada area of Jos South has been arrested today for allegedly killing her baby and throwing the body in a well.
She was reported to have killed the one year old boy and taken to her heels to avoid arrest.
Police Public Relations officer (PPRO), Emmanuel Abuh confirmed the incident to reporters saying the crime was committed last month.
He said, “The body of the boy was discovered in a well on August 13, at Sabon Barkin, but the suspect’s whereabouts had been unknown until she was nabbed by our men today.
“Culpable homicide is a very grievous offense because that little boy had the right to live but was killed.”
He explained that the police are still looking into the crime and will transfer the case to the State Criminal Investigation Division (SCID) for further investigation.
“The Bukuru Police Division is handling the preliminary investigation. Once we are through, we shall transfer the case to the state Criminal Investigation Division for thorough investigation,” he said.
Stranger than fiction.
