Police nab woman for throwing baby into pit toilet

The Ogun State Police Command says it has arrested a 21-year-old woman, Amudalat Taiwo, for throwing her 12-day-old baby into a  pit toilet in Ilaro, in the Yewa South Local Government Area of the state.

The police said the suspect was arrested following a complaint from her landlord, Oshunshina Olawale.

He said based on the strength of the complaint, the Divisional Police Officer, Ilaro Police Division, Opebiyi Sunday, led detectives to the scene, where the latrine was broken and the baby rescued.

The PPRO said the suspect told the police that she was an orphan, adding that she got married to one Taiwo Owolabi, who was already married to another woman with whom he had five children.

Oyeyemi said, “She stated further that the husband had never taken care of her and the baby and since she had no means of catering for the newborn baby, she decided to do away with her.”

The police spokesperson said the alleged husband had been arrested for failure to provide necessary assistance and care for both mother and child.

He said the case had been transferred to the Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department on the orders of the Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu.

Oyeyemi added that the baby “is in a stable condition at the Stella Obansanjo Motherless Babies Home.”
