In Abuja, a nursing mother hangs herself in a bush; her two-year-old daughter is discovered sobbing next to her body.
Unidentified nursing woman who allegedly killed herself and left her infant in a bush on Suuka Airport road in the Federal Capital Territory on Monday, November 21 was found dead.
The woman was discovered dead in the bush by the community’s early morning residents, along with an empty container of insecticide. People on the street stopped to listen to her wailing infant, who is thought to be two years old.
DSP Josephine Adeh, a spokesman for the FCT police command, confirmed the occurrence and stated that the child is currently in the hands of the police and that the corpse had been placed in a morgue. The search for the deceased woman’s family members is ongoing, she added.
“I can attest to the fact that our division in Iddo received a report of this case. The body has been placed in the mortuary of the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital. We shouldn’t jump to the assumption that she drank sniper before an autopsy has been done to ascertain the real cause of her death. She stated
