I gladly killed my baby to become rich overnight – 38-year-old mother

A 38-year-old mother, Kwaseve Fagal, has said that she decided to kill her newborn son without giving the act a second thought because she desired to become wealth overnight.

Mrs Fagal, who hails from Gakerko village, Keana Local Government area of Nassarawa State, revealed that she had been troubled over her husband’s inability to overcome poverty despite the fact that they worked daily to make ends meet.

According to her, rather than get reprieve through their toils, the situation worsened to a point that putting food on the table became a difficult task. Sometimes, according to her, the family stayed for days without food, and she slipped into emotional despair.

She stated this while been paraded at the Criminal Investigation Department of the Nasarawa State police command.

Mrs Fagal said: “Life became very difficult for my husband and I, to a point that having food daily became a problem, not to talk of catering for the two children we already had.

“The kids were not feeding well; we go hungry for days because we don’t have money to buy food.

“Though we are farmers, things didn’t just work well for us. That was why when a herbalist in our community, Alhaji Abass Loko, who hails from Kaduna State approached me with an offer to lift the burden of abject poverty, I gladly accepted.

“I was six months pregnant when he offered me help, I grabbed it pleasantly, even though the price was my unborn baby.”

Police Commissioner in the state, Abubakar Sadiq-Bello, said “On August 14, 2017, the housewife who had nursed a full-term pregnancy, was delivered of a baby boy in her home at, but the joy of her husband, Paul Fagal, aged 40, evaporated shortly after.

“Though the couple, peasant farmers, earlier had two children in their 14 years of marriage, the arrival of the new baby lifted the drowning soul of his father who had been toiling over the years, albeit with difficulty, to fend for his family.

“Unknown to Paul, his wife had been suffocating as they laboured for survival in their years of wedlock and was waiting on the devil for help.

“Acting on the instruction of a herbalist, she discreetly took the infant to a secluded area of the community shortly after birth and killed him. Then, she took his blood in a clay pot and dumped the remains in a nearby stream.

“But the bubble burst as the sudden disappearance of the baby aroused apprehension in the community, amid suspicion that the mother from hell might have committed sacrilege.

“After summoning all the women in the community for interrogation, a threat by the village head, Mathew Oloko, to further conduct orthodox and traditional probe into the incident, unveiled Kwaseve as the perpetrator of the dastardly act

“She eventually led a search party to a stream where the decomposed body of the baby was recovered, but kept sealed lips on the motive for the act till she was arrested and taken away by the police.”
