A 36-year old grandmother, Mrs. Bosede
Oyetunde, has been sentenced to one month’s imprisonment by a family
court sitting in Oke Eda, Akure, Ondo State, for dumping a day-old baby
boy, her grandson, in the bush.

The incident happened in Omotoso town in the Okitipupa Local Government Area of the state.
It was gathered that the woman committed the offence on July 13, 2017.
The accused and her daughter, who is the
mother of the baby, Opeyemi Isaac, were arrested by the men of the
Igbotako Police Division.
The duo, who were arraigned on two
counts of felony and attempted murder, were said to have put the baby in
a nylon bag before throwing him into the bush.
According to the charge sheet, the
offences committed contravened “sections 516, and 320(2) of the Criminal
Code, Cap 37, Vol1, Law of Ondo State of Nigeria, 2006.”
The accused pleaded guilty to the charges against them.
In her ruling, the Chief Magistrate,
Mrs. O.A. Edwin, sentenced the grandmother to one month’s imprisonment.
She also ordered the convict to be reporting at Igbotako Police Station
to render two months’ community service, after the completion of her
jail term.
The magistrate ordered the mother of the
baby to breastfeed the baby in the Ondo State Children Home, under the
supervision of the police, for a month.
Opeyemi, after the court session, claimed that her mother told her that the child had died.
