A new born baby was found hanging on the barbed wire of an hostel fence in Federal Polytechnic Oko in Anambra state after the mother tried throwing her over the fence.
The unidentified student of the Polytechnic and mother of the newborn is said to be on the run for trying to kill her baby she delivered last night in the school hostel by attempting to throw the baby to the other side of the fence before she was found hung on the barbed wire of the fence.
According to an eye witness, “the girl who’s identity is yet to be known delivered a baby girl on Friday night being 6 February, 2020 in her boyfriends room in Oko and they tried to kill the baby thereby throwing over the fence from the first floor of the hostel to next empty plot.”
The students who live off-campus in Munachi Hostel, Oko, Orumba North L.G.A, found the newborn baby, with her placenta still attached, hanging from the barbed wire of the fence separating their compound from the empty plot of land beside it.
The baby was rescued by students who heard the baby’s cry and rushed out to save her. They then rushed the baby to Chukwunoso Hospital opposite the main gate of the Polytechnic.
Following investigation, it was discovered that the child’s father is a HND 1 student of Public Administration Department. He pleaded with his roommate to allow his girlfriend to deliver the baby in their room so they could carry out their evil plan.
By the time police officers from the Oko police station arrived at the scene of the incident, the child’s father and mother were already on the run. The boy’s roommate has allegedly been arrested.
