A 24-year old woman in Anambra State has been arrested by the Police while she’s on her way to bury the foetus aborted from her uterus.
According to SP Haruna Mohammed, who is the Police Public Relations Officer for Anambra State, the woman was arrested alongside the chemist who performed the abortion on the woman.
It should be noted that abortion is more or less a murder case, as it is against the law.
The woman, named Chidera Nwaoga, lives in Ofianta village, Nsugbe, but happens to be a native of Izzi Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.
According to the Police operatives, they were able to arrest her in conjunction with the area’s (Nsugbe) Vigilante group.
She was said to have been arrested with a premature baby girl, as she was concealed inside a rubber bucket, while she was on her way to bury the child inside the bush.
According to investigation, the woman, when she was heavily pregnant, went to a quack and untrained chemist who administered injections on her, and aborted the pregnancy.
The chemist is recognized to be Odimegwu Ikunne, aged 51 years, who lives in Akpalagu village, Nsugbe, but is a native of Nando village.
