Nigerian Police Man Beats Up Wife, Allegedly Kills His Baby In Edo


A policeman has allegedly badly beaten his wife (names were not disclosed for security reasons), killed his 19-month-old baby boy in Benin. According to Vanguard, the incident occurred at a flat in Sam Enobakhare Crescent, off St. Saviour Road, Benin.
The policeman picked the baby boy, identified as Ayomide, from his bed and bit him several times, before strangulating him. The victim narrated that last Tuesday they were at home when her husband’s countenance suddenly changed. When the woman tried to find out why, he pounced on her. The 26-year-old mother of the late child recounted her ordeal:

“He kicked me for belle, pressed my neck, slapped me, I run come out, he come carry my pikin, bite am for neck, belle and face. He come lock me out”.

She said the child was swiftly taken to a private clinic where a doctor said the baby was brought in dead, adding that the child has since been buried.

The Chief Medical Director of Jonos Medical Clinic, where the baby was taken to, confirmed that a mother and her daughter brought in a dead baby a couple of days ago:

“On close examination the baby was pale, yellowish, with tooth bite injuries on his face.

“Since the baby is not old enough to fight with any person, I wondered who bit the baby. However, if he was brought in early enough, the baby would have been transfused with blood. He may have died of jaundice”.

The neighbours told the newsmen that the suspect’s place was deserted for the past few days.

Police Commissioner of Edo State promised to comment on the issue later.
