The Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) and other security agencies have arrested a 30 year old lady at an Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp in Dikwa town of Borno for allegedly killing her newborn child. According to the NSCDC Commandant in Borno, Ibrahim Abdullahi occurred on June 1st. The lady reportedly threw her baby inside a pit in the camp after she gave birth.
“Immediately she committed the atrocity, she left the camp. Our attention was drawn to the dastardly act after three days when the corpse started smelling in the pit. We conducted our investigation and were able to trace her through a man named Gulumba , the person that brought her to the camp. The case had since been referred to the Borno police command for further prosecution and interrogation. This is not the first case; IDPs on several occasions had been caught indulging in all sorts of anti-social behavior, like prostitution, murder and illicit drug abuse, among others” he said.
