Court remands woman for allegedly abandoning five-day-old baby
A grade I Area Court in Kabusa, Abuja, yesterday, ordered that a woman, Sadiya Usman, who pleaded guilty to abandoning a five-day-old baby in a bush, be remanded in a correctional centre, pending sentencing.
The Police charged Usman, a resident of Shretti Kabusa Village, with abandonment.
The Judge, Mr. Aliyu Kagarko, adjourned the case until December 10, this year for sentencing.
Earlier, Prosecution Counsel, Mr. Mahmud Lawal, told the court that the complainant, Mr. Amadu Bahago, reported at the Kabusa Police Station on November 3 that he found the baby in the bush, where it was abandoned.
He further said that during the investigation, the defendant did not deny the allegations, an offence that contravened the provisions of Sections 237 of the Penal Code Law.
