The Ogun State Police Command has arrested a 43-year-old woman, Bisola Awodele for killing her baby and secretly burying it.

It was gathered that a team of police investigators has since followed her to the secret grave where she buried the baby, and the carcass exhumed.

A statement from the Police Public Relations Officer, Ogun State, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, on Sunday affirmed the killing, adding that Bisola has been arrested following a report by her husband – Peter Phillips.

The Area Commander, ACP Muhideen Obe, was said to have quickly directed his JWC section to effect the arrest of the murderous woman.

He said: “Preliminary investigation also revealed that the suspect gave birth to a baby about eight months ago but killed and secretly buried the baby out of frustration.

“The investigating team have since followed her to the secret grave where she buried the baby; the carcass was exhumed.”

Bisola, on 8th March 2021, was said to have bathed her husband with hot water, which caused him severe injury.

Peter was said to have been suffering from a first-degree burn when his wife and mother of five, who accused him of drunkenness, picked up a pot of boiled water and emptied its content on him.

“On interrogation, the suspect explained to the police how her husband is fun of coming home drunk always without contributing anything to the welfare of her and the children.

“She stated further that on that fateful day, the husband came home drunk as usual, and while she was complaining about the husband act of drunkenness, the man started insulting her and her parents who infuriated her, made her pour the hot water on him.

“The husband has been taken to the General Hospital, Ota where he is presently recuperating”, Oyeyemi said.”
