By Ikeugonna Eleke

A woman identified as Chinelo Udogu has flogged her three-year old child to death.

Sources said Udogu carried out the action in a feat of anger and that when she discovered that the baby had died, she allegedly put her in a bag and dumped her in a bush.

A video circulating online showed the woman being apprehended by some residents of Amikwo Awka where she dumped the baby in a nearby bush.

Meanwhile, the Anambra State Police Command has confirmed the incident, saying that the culprit had been arrested.

The Police Public Relations Officer for the Command, Mr Tochukwu Ikenga, a Deputy Superintendent of Police who confirmed the incident, cautioned against anger.

He said, ‘On the incident about a woman, Chinelo Udogu, who allegedly flogged a three-year old child to death and dumped her body in a bush at Amikwo, Awka, she has been arrested and the victim’s body recovered.

‘The lesson for us to learn is that we should be cautious when angry and desist from going physical when correcting our children.

‘Meanwhile the case has been transferred to the State CID for discreet investigations. Further development shall be communicated.’
