A Nigerian man, identified as Muyiwa Ayorinde, was beaten black and blue at the Oke Aro area of Akure, Ondo State capital, for dumping his own baby inside a canal in the area.

According to reports the 32-year-old man was said to have kept the 3-week-old baby boy inside a black bag and thrown him inside the canal.

He was, however, caught by the residents of the area who pummeled him to an inch of his life before handing him over to the police.

A source who narrated the incident said that, the cry of the baby inside the bag was what attracted the people who began monitoring the suspect’s movement.

Here’s what the eyewitness said;

“I saw the young man looking strange as he alighted from an okada (motorcycle) and pulled out a black bag and dropped it inside the canal and we heard a baby crying aloud. That was when we knew what he wanted to do. People usually come from different places to dump things in this canal and we have to make it a point of duty to stop them.

“The man is a wicked man to have come to the place to dump his own baby. Thank God for the swift intervention of the security men who came around; the people there would have killed him.”

The source also revealed that the baby was taken to a nearby hospital, where it was confirmed dead.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr Tee-Leo Ikoro, said he was yet to be briefed about the incident.
