Sept 3rd, 2013 – Mother Arrested For Dumping Malnourished Baby In Cemetery In Jigawa State

A 25-year-old woman has been nabbed in Jigawa state for allegedly dumping her newborn baby at a cemetery.

The woman, who was arrested by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, is said to have dumped her newborn baby (pictured above) in a cemetery in Kazaure Local Government of the state.

Muhammad Gidado, the NSCDC commandant in the state yesterday disclosed that the suspect was nabbed on Friday at Ilallah quarters in Kazaure town.

According to him, the woman, who was a housemaid in the area, was arrested following a tip-off by divorcees, widows, housemaids and prostitutes residing in the area.

“We were able to identify and arrest the mother of the baby girl that was abandoned at the graveyard after conducting a thorough investigation among divorcees, widows, housemaids and prostitutes living in the area,” Gidado said.

He further disclosed that a medical examination at the General Hospital, Hadejia had revealed that the suspect was the biological mother of the abandoned baby.

“She also confessed to being the mother, as well as dumping the baby”, he said.

Gidado said the suspect had alleged that she was impregnated by one Alhaji Haruna of Makara-Huta quarters in the same town.

Apparently unable to cater for the newborn baby, she decided to dump her in the cemetery.

The baby was discovered and rescued by men of the NSCDC while on patrol in the area on August 27.
