Mother Arrested For Throwing One-Day-Old Baby From 3-Storey Building In Gombe

The Gombe State Police command has officially confirmed the arrest of the mother of a one-day-old baby, who tragically threw the infant to its death from a height.

This distressing incident occurred at the female hostel of Gombe State University, GSU Gombe. ASP Mahid Mua’zu, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), relayed this information during a phone conversation with Waffi TV, stating that the command received a formal complaint from GSU security about the incident around 1 pm yesterday.

“We received a complaint today (Sunday) via the Chief Security Officer, CSO of the GSU who reported around 1:30pm that the incident happened at the university jurisdiction. We have taken over investigation presently and we are going to communicate after gathering our facts in due course,” he said.

According to him, the one-day-old baby was pronounced dead upon arrival, and the suspect, identified as Rahab, the newborn’s mother and a fourth-year Public Administration student, is currently receiving medical treatment at the Federal Teaching Hospital (FTH) in Gombe.

The discovery of the lifeless body of the newborn near hall four of the female hostel sent shockwaves through the university on Saturday morning. The infant was found deceased, still attached to an umbilical cord, and had suffered an injury to the right leg.

As of now, the university administration has not issued an official statement regarding the incident. However, an undisclosed source has indicated that the killing of the one-day-old baby is being viewed as a serious criminal act that cannot be ignored.
