Adamawa govt releases ’20/21 SUBEB counterpart funds The Informant247

A 20-year-old young woman has killed her baby with rat poison in Adamawa State.

When interrogated, she confessed to killing her 3-day-old baby with a rat-killing substance.

The Informant247 Naija News gathered that the young mother, Amina Umar, a divorcee, had the baby for a 22-year-old man who she claimed could not support her in taking care of the baby.

It was learned that Amina Umar was divorced by her husband but got involved with the new man identified as Buba Musa, with whom she had the baby.

She was said to have delivered the baby on the 14th of March, 2022, and administered the deadly rat poison on the baby on the 17th of March.

The divorcee who hailed from Madagali Local Government Area, told newsmen at the Adamawa Police Command headquarters where she is being held with the said father of the dead child, that she killed the child because of lack of means to cater for the child and herself.

Amina Umar, who has expressed regret for her action, was said to have planned her child’s death by sending for the purchase of the rat poison that she fed to the baby.

After administering the chemical, Amina told her neighbors that her baby had become sick, but her neighbors became suspicious of her, witnesses said, because they heard her conversation with the boy that she sent to buy the poison.

The Adamawa State Police Command said it is currently holding the youth for resorting to use rat-killing substance to end the life of her own baby.

Reacting to the incident, the spokesman of the Adamawa State Police Command, DSP Suleiman Nguroje, on Wednesday, said the suspects will be charged to court after due investigation had been completed.

The father of the deceased, Buba Musa, admitted that he was the one who impregnated Amina after she was divorced by her husband, but he denied knowledge of Amina’s plan to kill the baby.

Buba Musa, a mechanic, said he promised to marry Amina as his second wife, confirming that he didn’t even know when Amina was delivered of her pregnancy because he fell sick and had surgery.

He said he only heard about things after the baby had died.

The police, the divisional office in Madagali, took the corpse of the baby after arresting the mother.

The Madagali Police Division subsequently transferred the case to the police headquarters in Yola.
