There was indignation and anger in Kaiama community, the headquarters of Kolokuma/Opokuma Local Government Area of Bayelsa State when a 27-year-old mother drowned her baby a few hours after delivery.

The lady, Miss Erebi Amgba, was reported to have delivered the baby on her own by the river at about 3a.m. on Saturday.

Immediately after the delivery, she proceeded to drown the child who was still with the umbilical cord attach to it.

It was gathered that someone who by chance came to the riverside to defecate saw what happened and raised the alarm.

Before delivery, the young woman was said to have tried all she could to conceal the pregnancy.
