5-day-old Baby Killed By Father Over Lack Of Money For Naming Ceremony
The Police in Bauchi State arrested one Habibu Bala of Ningi Local Government area of the state for allegedly killing his five-day-old son with insecticide.
The Police Public Relations Officer of the state Police Command, DSP Kamal Abubakar, disclosed this yesterday in an interview.
According to him, on January 21, the suspect’s brother, one Musa Bala, reported at the Ningi Police Station that on the same date at about 2:30p.m., his younger brother poisoned his newborn son by feeding him an insecticide known as ‘Piya Piya.’
“As a result the baby became unconscious and was later taken to Ningi General Hospital, where a medical doctor certified him dead.”
When asked why, Habibu Bala said:
“I have no money to organise naming ceremony for the child, but I regretted it.”
May God help us all, because I no longer understand human beings again.
