Couple Detained By Police For Burying Their Newborn Child

A 30-year-old woman who admitted to burying her infant alive after giving birth has said the pregnancy was never her intention.

NPF agents in Jigawa State have detained Balaraba Shehu, 30, and Amadu Sale for burying their newborn baby alive. They were both charged with the crime.

The crime was allegedly committed by the lovers in Jigawa State’s Kiyawa LGA.

According to the Jigawa Police Command spokesperson, DSP Lawan Adam, who announced the couple’s arrest, Shehu and Sale were detained after a tip that one of the women may have given birth and buried the child.

The police spokeswoman continued by saying that after receiving the report, a team of officers was dispatched to the crime scene.

Adam claims that the moment the operatives arrived, they sprang into action and dug up the newborn child from the toilet, where the mother-in-law-to-be had allegedly buried it.

However, the infant was sent to the General Hospital Dutse, where it was determined that he had passed away.

Preliminary findings, according to Adam, showed that the mother buried the child under the pretext that the pregnancy was unwanted. This eventually led to Sale, also known as Dan Kwairo, being arrested.

The unintended pregnancy of Shehu was allegedly caused by Dan Kwairo, who also plotted to bury the child after delivery.

However, the police image maker claimed that the case had been sent to the Investigative Department of the Command (SCID) in Dutse for a covert investigation at the direction of Jigawa State Commissioner of Police, Emmanuel Effiom.

After the inquiry is complete, the suspects will be charged in court to face the full force of the law, he continued.
