A middle-aged lady has been arrested after she allegedly aborted her 8-month-old pregnancy and dumped the fetus in a gutter near her house at Igbudu, Warri, Delta state.
According to reports, the lady had earlier approached a nurse for abortion, but she was turned back. She, however, found a way to terminate the 8-month-old pregnancy and throw the fetus away.
Residents woke up this morning to the sight of a fetus in a gutter, they launched an investigation which led them to the nurse who revealed that a lady had approached her for abortion but she refused to be a party to it.
She subsequently directed them to the suspect, who, upon interrogation, admitted to the commission of the crime because she didn’t know who was responsible for the pregnancy and she was not ready to be a mother. She has since been handed over to the police.
