Shocking! Secondary school student arrested after killing her newborn and hurling the corpse over the school fence
Yesterday, an SS1 student of the Federal Government Girls College in Malali, Kaduna, was arrested after she murdered her newborn and flung the corpse over the school fence.
Daily Trust reports that the dead child was wrapped in a white cloth, but it got entangled against the metal hooks on the fence and dangled, until it drew attention and was brought down.
The Police spokesperson, DSP Zubairu Abubakar, confirmed the incident and identified the student as Ummu-Salam Umar, an SS1 student. He said, “At about 1.15pm, the Vice Principal of FGGC, Malali, Mrs. Obianwuzia reported at the station that the corpse of a new born baby suspected to have been delivered by a student wrapped in a white cloth was thrown over the school fence.”
“The corpse of the baby was left dangling on the school fence until the police came and removed it,” he continued. “After taking picture of the scene, it has been deposited at the mortuary.”
Ummu-Salam Umar is currently detained by the police.
