Police in Niger have arrested a 22-year-old housewife, Harela Uba, of Shakodna village, Shiroro Local Government Area of the State for allegedly killing a three-day-old baby boy in the area.
The Commissioner of Police in the State, Alhaji Adamu Usman, disclosed this in Minna on Tuesday.

Usman said that one Uba Saidu of Shakodna village in Shiroro Local Government Area reported the matter at Shiroro Police Division that his second wife, Fa’iza Uba, of the same address, went into the bathroom and left her three-day-old baby boy in her room.

“When she returned, she discovered white foam coming out from the mouth of the baby and he was immediately rushed to General Hospital, Kuta, where he was confirmed dead by a physician,” he said.
