Police Apprehend Mother Over Attempt To Kill Her Baby


A woman who allegedly attempted to kill her sick child, using “Sniper”, a poisonous insecticide, was arrested by the police in Lagos State.

SP Benjamin Hundeyin, Police spokesman in the state, made this disclosure, saying that the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba, reported the attempt to the police on Friday.

He said the chief security officer at the hospital reported to the police that the mother brought her one-year-and-seven months’ old daughter to the hospital for treatment.

He added that the mother confessed to a doctor at the hospital that she gave the child “Sniper’’ to drink when her convulsion was not abating.

Said Hundeyin: “The mother said she gave the liquid to her child so she could rest from her excessive convulsions.

“Detectives were immediately dispatched to the hospital where they met the baby receiving treatment.

“The mother has been taken in for investigation after the child had received treatment”.
