The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of Delta Police Command, Mrs. Celestine Kalu has confirmed the arrest of Owhoghovo Annabel who dumped her six-month-old baby at a refuse dump after a dispute with her husband.
According to Punch, the incident began on Thursday evening, October 8, when Annabel‘s husband returned from work and asked her to massage his feet. Annabel refused but instead rained abuses on her husband.
The heated exchange of words degenerated into a fight on Friday morning after some neighbours who got wind of their quarrel moved in to settle the dispute.
Reports claim that the woman was said to have told her husband that she was visiting her mother in Abraka, only for her to dump the baby at a refuse dump midway.
The cry of the baby was said to have attracted the attention of passersby, who took the baby to a police station in the community.
Ms Kalu said Annabel is presently helping the Police with their investigations. She will be charged to court for attempted murder upon the completion of police investigations, she added.
