A 35-year-old woman identified as Sukurat Olajoke, in police net for allegedly killing her one-month-old baby.
The suspect who is now in police custody allegedly killed and dumped the corpse of the baby inside Ogun river.
She lands into police trouble as a result of her suspicious behaviour after throwing an object in a river.
Olajoke was arrested by a patrol team for the Enugada Divisional Headquarters, Abeokuta, led by the DPO SP Baba Hamzat.
According to her in a statement released by the police public relations officer in the state, she confessed to the killing of her one-month-old baby out of frustration.
She explained that the father of the baby rejected her and the baby, hence her decision to take the life of the baby.
Upon investigation, it was gathered that the woman already has six children from different men while the father of the baby identified as Hakeem denied the paternity of the deceased baby.
The statement said:
“it was on interrogation that the suspect, who lives at Agboole Alakoye area of Igbo Ora in Oyo State, confessed that it was the corpse of her one-month-old baby whom she had killed out of frustration that she threw into the river.
“She confessed further that, the person who is responsible for the pregnancy of the baby, rejected her and the baby, and since she has no means of taking care of the child, she decided to kill and throw her into the river.
“Preliminary investigation revealed that the suspect had given birth to six other children for three different men, before getting pregnant for one man simply identified as Hakeem who refused to accept the paternity of the child.
“The DPO later engaged the service of local divers, who helped in recovering the corpse of the child, and it has been deposited at the general hospital mortuary.”
