25 year old labourer, Macaulay Onitcha, has been arrested by the police in Delta state for allegedly burying his new born daughter, Edna Macaulay, alive. Macaulay took the young baby to the bushes, dug a shallow grave, threw the baby in the grave and covered it with sand.
Fortunately for the little angel, someone had witnessed him burying her
alive and hurriedly exhumed her after fighting and overpowering Macaulay
at the scene. The person, Saturday Ekama, took the child to the police
station to report what had happened. Little Edna had a neck injury after
she was dug out and she is currently undergoing treatment at Saint
Hospital in Asaba, while her dad is in police custody at the
State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Asaba.
Macaulay told police that he attempted to kill his daughter because he
was angry with his wife. He said he did it in anger and was sorry!
That's the shallow grave up there. Find a photo of the baby after she
was dug out from the grave and a photo of her in the hospital.
