Police Apprehends Woman For Throwing Her Baby into Soak-Away

Policemen of Ogun state command has apprehended a 30 year old woman, Risikatu Olabintan for throwing her one day old baby into soak-away pit.

The arrest of Risikatu followed the distress call from the members of Surulere area, Owode-Yewa community that some children were playing outdoor and heard the cry of a baby echoing from the soak-away and raised an alarm.

It was gathered that Risikatu gave birth to the baby secretly and threw him into the soak-away very early on November 17,2019, hence why she was apprehended. She explained the reason behind her doing such was because the baby is her sixth child and she has no means of feeding them all since her husband is nowhere to be found.

The Police spokesperson noted “both the baby and mother are currently in the hospital for medical care and the baby is responding well to treatment”
