A wicked mother in Umuahia in Abia State has strangled her four-month-old baby boy to death and dumped him on the rail track, which is no longer in use.
The corpse of the baby boy dumped inside a carton was discovered on Monday morning by passers bye who raised alarm at the sordid sight.
Eyewitness accounts at the scene of the incident said that they were attracted to the scene by some group of early morning passers-by who, on sighting the body, raised alarm, which attracted some Mobile phone accessories traders who were about opening for business.
It was gathered that the dead baby boy had blood gushing out from his nose, ear and mouth an indication most sympathizers said suggested that the baby might have been strangled.
At the scene, many on lookers were heard rendering curses and condemning whoever might have done the dastardly act, while an elderly woman in her mid 50s was also seen weeping uncontrollably for this generation.
Reacting to the incident, the Divisional Crime Officer, Nigerian Police, Nigerian Railway Command, Umuahia Division, Emmanuel Bassey Amana, DSP, confirmed the incident saying that the command is still investigating the heinous crime to fish out the wicked perpetrator.
