An auxiliary nurse, Ms. Oyekanmi has been arrested by the police for the death of a baby she forcefully took delivery of in the Ikorodu area of Lagos State.
PUNCH reported that the mother of the baby, Adeola, was taken to Oyekanmi’s residence last Saturday when she went into labour.
It was after she pulled off the baby’s hand while trying to force the delivery that she advised that the child should be taken to the Ikorodu General Hospital, where the dead child was finally delivered.
Meanwhile, the doctors at the hospital reported the case to the police after the parents of the dead baby explained what happened.
A source who spoke with Punch explained that Oyekanmi had been arrested by the police.
“What happened was that the auxiliary nurse tried to deliver the woman of the baby, during which there was a complication. But she continued and in the end, the hand of the baby was pulled off while she tried to force the child out from the mother’s womb.
“Afterwards, they quickly packed the woman together and brought her to the general hospital. It had become a critical case by then. The remains of the dead child were brought out, while the matter was reported to the police.”
