Bauchi Man Kills 5-Day-Old Baby Because He Had No Money For His Naming Ceremony

Police in Bauchi State have arrested one Habibu Bala of Ningi Local Government area of the state for allegedly killing his five-day-old son with insecticide, because “I have no money to organise naming ceremony for the child.”

The Police Public Relations Officer of the state Police Command, DSP Kamal Abubakar, disclosed this yesterday, while briefing newsmen on the successful operations carried out within the week.

 According to him, on January 21, the suspect’s brother, one Musa Bala, reported at the Ningi Police Station that on the same date at about 2:30p.m., his younger brother poisoned his newborn son by feeding him insecticide.

“As a result the baby became unconscious and was later taken to Ningi General Hospital, where a medical doctor certified him dead,” he added.
