There was outrage by indigenes of Kaima Community in Kolokuma/Opokuma local government area of Bayelsa State after a 27-year-old mother drowned her newborn baby just few hours after delivery.
One Miss Erebi Amgba reportedly committed the crime at 3 am last Saturday.
According to the information provided, the child was still covered in amniotic fluid at the time he was dumped in a bucket of water and left to drown.
It has been gathered that the killer mother had in the last few weeks preceeding the incident, been bombarded with queries about her strange pregnant appearance but had denied that she was pregnant.
A source from the community said that Amgba had been using scarves to hide the signs of her pregnancy.
The source who simply gave his name as Tommy, said
"She gave birth to the child in the middle of the night and used a knife to slash the placenta then dumped the child in a bucket of water to die but nemesis caught up with her when she was too weak to push out the remaining part of the placenta.
"The cry of the child also attracted a neighbour who raised the alarm, which led to the discovery and a nurse was invited to help. It was the nurse who induced delivery which later allowed the killer mother to push out the remaining placenta."
