Mother Opens up on why she Dumped her 13-month-old Baby in a Well

Mother reveals why she Dumped her 13-month-old Baby in a Well

Sofia Nkwor, a 24-year-old mother from Ushie in Ndokwa East of Delta State, has confessed to abandoning her 13-month-old baby in a well in Araya community, Isoko South council area, on April 26, 2024. She expressed remorse for her actions during a parade by the Nigeria Police, Delta State Command, where she was showcased alongside 14 other criminals by the State Commissioner of Police, Abaniwonda.

Nkwor, a former bar attendant, disclosed that she felt overwhelmed and lacked support after her boyfriend, who impregnated her, denied paternity of the child. “The father rejected his child, I stay with my grandma. She rejected me and the baby. I regret my actions, I feel bad. I was in a bad mood at the time I did it. I have no helper. It is only me who takes care of the baby and does everything. I am tired,” she explained.

The discovery of the abandoned child floating in the well was made by children playing in the area, who promptly alerted the local vigilante, leading to police intervention, as narrated by the Police Commissioner.

In a separate incident, Chiemenam Adigwe, a 45-year-old native of Akpo community in Aguata local government area of Anambra State, was also apprehended for possession of 100 fake bottles of Gordons, Chelsea, Eagle Schnapps, and McDowell’s. The suspect, arrested in Bomadi creek town, reportedly adulterated ethanol with water and flavor to produce counterfeit products, which he packaged in empty bottles sourced from Onitsha.

The Commissioner stated that Adigwe deceived his customers by claiming the drinks were sourced from Onitsha. He remains in custody pending further investigation.
