Mwuese Keleve: Nasarawa Woman Murdered Her Three-Day-Old Child
Things are really happening oh! A Nasarawa woman murdered her three-day-old child and dumped the corpse in the river in the Kadarko area of Keana Local Government Area of the state. The woman has since been identified as Mwuese Keleve, 25.
In an interview with Northern City News on Thursday in Lafia, the Police Public Relation Officer, DSP Idirisu Kennedy, said that on Monday, the command received a report about the corpse of a baby found in a river in the Keana Local Government Area. On Tuesday, the suspect who turned out to be the mother of the dead child, was arrested. It’s understood the suspect has confessed to committing the crime but didn’t give any logical reason for killing her child.
The police image-maker disclosed that as soon as the police conclude their investigations, Keleve would be charged to court. He said:
“Based on the report from the preliminary investigation, the woman is sane and has admitted to committing the crime.”
The suspect’s husband, Mr. Fanen Peter, expressed shock at his wife’s action explaining that they had been married for 15 years with two children and the deceased was their third child. He also said that the deceased child has already been buried.
The paramount ruler, Kadoko of Kadarko, Chief Fabian Orugu, while reacting to the incident, described Keleve’s action as a devilish act “which cannot be tolerated.” He hailed the efforts of residents of the area and the police for the collaboration that led to the culprit’s arrest. He also promised that the traditional council would monitor the case to ensure that the law took its course so as to serve as a deterrent to others.
