Lagos – A woman from Bayelsa State has been accused of drowning her son just a few hours after she gave birth to him, AllAfrica reports.
It was reported that Erebi Amgba, 27, attempted to hide her pregnancy for as long as possible, even going so far as to try and perform her own delivery, using a knife to cut her placenta. A neighbour heard the sound of a baby crying and immediately called a nurse to help.
The child was dumped in a bucket and left to drown. Sources claim that the child was still covered in amniotic fluid.
