A young woman has been arrested for allegedly killing her newborn baby in Kuru, Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau State.

A Facebook user who shared photos of the lady and the baby’s body wrapped in a shawl wrote, “Can you just imagine, she give birth and kill ethe baby, happen today (11-05-2022) in trade center Kuru.”
In related news, a 22-year-old lady identified as Adisa Funmilola reportedly drowned her baby because she prevented her from going to the university to study law.
According to a report by Vanguardngr, she drowned the one-year and six months old baby inside a bucket of water in her apartment at Plot 22, Gowon Estate, Lagos, on Monday, and then reported herself to the Police.
During interrogation, she blamed her action on frustration, saying her baby deprived her of actualising her dream of becoming a lawyer.

However, Folarin denied it and request that the pregnancy be aborted. Along the line, she said she was offered admission into the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, to study Law, but had to defer the admission because of the baby.
