Do you remember the story of a baby that was rescued by a vigilant community member we shared with you yesterday? if you missed it please read it here.
Initial report stated that it happened in Lagos but according to investigations carried out, it actually happened in Asaba, Delta state.
Nigerian Police officials have concluded their investigation and it revealed that the baby girl was actually buried alive by her own father.
This mishap happened in Asaba, Delta state, Nigeria on Saturday.
Mr Macaulay Onitcha is the father of the above baby.
The 25-year-old labourer who claimed he is unhappy with his wife after she allegedly refused to sleep with him committed this ungodly act.
The 4-month-old baby girl named Edna Macaulay was buried in a shallow grave dug by her own father on Saturday at Ekurudu Street Kokori.
Fortunately for little Edna, a good Samaritan who witnessed Edna’s father burying her rescued the girl.
