Warning! This post contains graphic images that some individuals may find disturbing. It’s a shame what this world is coming to when a man does this to his own child.
Bear with us, because the source is a lil suspect, but this story was too incredible not to report.
A 4-month-old baby’s life was saved in Nigeria’s Asaba, Delta state Saturday after she was buried in a shallow grave by her own father!
According to web reports:
Nigerian Police officials have concluded their investigation and it revealed that the baby girl was actually buried alive by her own father.
This mishap happened in Asaba, Delta state, Nigeria on Saturday.
Mr. Macaulay Onitcha is the father of the above baby. The 25-year-old laborer claimed he committed the ungodly act because he was hunhappy with his wife after she allegedly refused to sleep with him.
The 4-month-old baby girl named Edna Macaulay was buried in a shallow grave dug by her own father on Saturday at Edurudu Street Kokori.
Fortunately for little Edna, a good Samaritan who witnessed the burial rescued the girl.
Mr. Saturday Ekama allegedly suffered machete cuts at the hands of Macaulay Onitcha while rescuing the child as her father was covering the grave. Ekama reported the incident to police.
According to an official statement from Delta State police spokesman Mr. Muk:
When the child was exhumed alive, she had a neck injury. Currently she is undergoing treatment at Saint Francis Hospital, Okapra Inland. The suspect is currently assisting the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Asaba in their investigations.”
We are so relieved the child survived!
