Although such scenario is no longer new to people living in the slump and other urban areas of Anambra State, yet the residents of Okosu Street in Inland town were shocked waking one fateful morning to behold a gory sight of decomposing bodies of twin babies abandoned in a refuse dump.
Investigations revealed that the unfortunate babies were dumped by a woman suspected to be their mother.
The two boys who were trashed by their mother at about 3am yesterday were already decomposing before onlookers could come to their rescue.One of the woman sympathizers who seemed so emotionally affected by the gory sight of the two innocent babies claimed that the mother of the twins could have strangled them to aid easy disposal, out of poverty or frustration but stressing that it is not enough reason to waste lives in that manner.
In an emotional laden voice, she said: “We just came out this morning only to behold this evil act and as a woman; I began to ask myself how a fellow woman and mother could kill such innocent children and dump them in a dustbin. It could be true that these innocent children were killed by their mother because they were unwanted but God will deny whoever that meted this type of cruelty on these innocent children, happiness that fruit of the womb brings.”
In a twinkle of an eye, the news spread like wild fire across the neighboring streets. Clerics and other concerned Nigerian who came to catch a glimpse of the wasted lives condemned the evil act and pleaded God to grant the souls of the twins’ eternal rest.The Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Police Inland Town, Mr. E. Evans, was yet to confirm the saddening incidence as at the time of filing this report.
