30-Year-Old Mother Arrested For Throwing Her One-Day-Old Baby Into Soak-away Pit


A 30-year-old mother of five, Mrs Risikat Olabintan has been arrested by the police for throwing her one- day -old baby into a soak-away pit.

Her arrest followed a distress call received by members of Ibukun Oluwapo Community, Ishaga Surulere area in Owode-Yewa, that some children while playing at the backyard of their compound heard the cry of a baby in the soak-away and raised alarm.

On receiving the information, the DPO Owode-Yewa, Sp Olabisi Elebute quickly led team of policemen to the scene where the baby was rescued with the assistance of members of the public.

Investigation later revealed that it was the said Risikat Olabintan who gave birth secretly to the baby and threw him inside the soak-away as early as 5am of that day, hence she was apprehended.

On interrogation, she made a confessional statement that she actually gave birth to the baby which is the sixth of her children and that she has no means of feeding them all since her husband has absconded to an unknown destination for quite some time now.

Both the baby and the mother are presently in the hospital for medical attention and the baby is responding positively to treatment.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Cp Imohimi Edgal has directed that the case be transferred to Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour Unit of the State Investigation and Intelligence Department for proper investigation.
