Ugochukwu Otu, 25, of Ebonyi State has killed her one-day baby girl soon after she was discharged from a maternity home. She put the dead body in a black polyethylene bag and dumped it in a bush near Ndibe beach road. Nemesis caught up with her when
neighbors began asking her about the baby.
She bowed to pressure and confessed and she was arrested. Showing no remorse, Otu said: “I killed my one-day old baby girl intentionally because I don’t have N500 for her medical treatment.I want to be free lady. I didn’t have any intention to get pregnant. I was impregnated by one man called Monday. But later he refused to accept the pregnancy and I didn’t plan for it. I am not ready to marry; I want to be a free lady.
I had to strangle the baby girl and put the corpse in a black polythene bag and dumped it along Ndibe beach road, near the bush. I don’t regret killing my baby because nobody was responsible for her upkeep.” The Assistant Commissioner of Police in-charge of SCID, Mrs. Augustina Ogbodo said that act was committed on Monday December 22, 2014 and she would be charged to court soon for murder….. ppl suggest dt since she was impregnated by Mr. Monday and she killed d baby on a Monday, killing her, by hanging, on a Monday would b perfect bt 3 wrongs don’t make a right…..
