Mother, 21, allegedly kills own new born baby in Enugu


The Enugu State Police Command says it has arrested a 21-year-old mother, Sandra Chisom Dimbo, for allegedly killing her newborn baby shortly after giving birth to it.

Confirming the incident and arrest in a statement, the state police spokesman, DSP Ebere Amaraizu, said the tragedy has turned the hitherto serene environment of the Royal Lodge located at Agbani in Nkanu West Local Government Area of Enugu State “sour as the report of a mother killing her baby got into ears of lodgers which threw them into a sorrowful mood.”

The suspect who was an occupant of the Royal Lodge was said to have given birth to the baby on November 17 and allegedly killed her in her room before the arrival of neighbours who had to force themselves into her room.

Amaraizu said the cry of a baby was heard from Sandra’s room which attracted neighbours, but that they could not have access until they forced themselves in only to discover that the baby had allegedly been killed by its mother.

Amaraizu said “a full-scale investigation has commenced into the incident and Sandra is helping the operatives,” adding that the corpse of the baby was recovered by the operatives.
