Benin – A 19-month-old baby has allegedly been killed by his father, a policeman, in Benin who also accused of beating his wife, Vanguard reports.
According to the Chief Medical Director of Jonos Medical Clinic, the baby was brought in by the mother and her daughter. The baby’s skin tone was yellow and he had tooth bite marks on his face.
The doctors believe that if the baby was brought to the clinic sooner they might have been able to help him; it is probable that he might have died of jaundice.
Last Tuesday, the mother of the child reported that her husband had beaten her after she had enquired about his change in mood.
According to neighbours, the family has not been seen at their residence for the past couple of days.
