MAN ARRESTED FOR THROWING FOUR-MONTH-OLD SON INTO RIVER
The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps on Tuesday paraded a 20-year-old Okada rider, Aliyu, who threw his four-month-old son into a river.
Edem said that the corpse of the baby was yet to be recovered, adding that the suspect would be handed over to the police for further investigation and prosecution.
We want to hand him over to the Nigeria Police Force because of the synergy we have with them and other security agencies,” he said
He admonished parents to keep a close eye on their children and know what they are doing.
He said his mother gets mad at him any time she thinks of the baby and even threatened to lay a curse on him if he ever brought the baby to their house.
“My girlfriend is always crying that her mother doesn’t like the baby and that the mother said she would stop taking care of the baby until we get married.
“This was what made me take the baby in my arms one day, cried for 30 minutes and threw him into River Oti,” he added.
According to him, he regrets what he did and is prepared to face the consequences of his action.
