Woman throws her newborn into toilet for being a boy

One 30-year-old woman from Ogidi, in the Idemili Local Government Area of Anambra State is presently making headlines after throwing her newborn baby boy into the toilet.

A resident, who spoke to PUNCH said she had been complaining to some people that she did not like the sex of her baby.

“I learnt she went for a scan some weeks ago and was told that her baby was a boy; whereas, she was expecting a baby girl.

“Those closed to her said she had been angry about that. I won’t know whether that could be the reason for her action,” the resident stated.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Haruna Mohammed, confirmed the incident, saying that the baby was recovered dead from the toilet.

Mohammed added, “On Saturday, around 8.30am, operatives attached to Ogidi Division arrested one Franca Udokwu, 30, of Obuba Obofia Nkpor Community in Idemili North LGA of Anambra State. The suspect allegedly gave birth to a baby boy and dumped the child inside a pit toilet inside her house.

“Upon interrogation, the suspect led police detectives to the scene of crime where the baby was recovered and taken to Iyi-Enu Mission Hospital for medical attention but was confirmed dead on arrival by a medical doctor.”
