A woman at one of the Internally Displaced Persons, IDP,  camps in Maiduguri, Borno State, has been arrested for killing her newly born baby.

Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, the Borno State Commander of Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps, NSCDC, Ibrahim Abdullahi, said a 30-year old woman was arrested at Dikwa IDP camp for killing her newly born baby last week.

The woman (name withheld) who is also an IDP at the camp, caused the death of the baby by throwing him into a pit at the camp.



    Abdullahi said the woman was arrested at Dikwa town after fleeing the camp.

    He said: “This incident occurred on June 1, 2016. Immediately she committed this atrocity, she ran out of the Dikwa IDP camp. Our attention was drawn to the dastardly act; after three days when the decomposing body of the child started smelling from the pit,

    “After we conducted our investigation, we were able to trace her through a man identified as Gulumba, who brought the suspect to the camp.

    Abdullahi said the suspect has been handed over to the Borno State Police Command in Maiduguri for prosecution.
