Cameroonian police have reportedly arrested an unidentified woman whose child died after she allegedly administered tramadol to her child and then went clubbing.
According to the Instagram user who shared the story with photos of the lady and the dead baby, the mother gave the drug to the child so that the baby could sleep while she went out to party with friends.
The incident was reported to have occurred in the Likombo area of Tiko in Cameroon’s South-West region.
It was also revealed that the mother locked the baby inside the house after administering the drug to him before leaving.
When she returned, she discovered the child lifeless where she had placed him and immediately raised the alarm. It was also revealed that the residents of the community attacked her and beat her up before the police intervened and carted her away.
The caption of the post reads, “This lady you see here committed an abomination last night in Likomba, Tiko. Despite having a newborn baby of few months old in hand, she wanted to go clubbing with friends.
“The innocent child was the only thing standing in her way as she couldn’t take him to the club. So what did this girl do?
“She decided to give him tramadol so he can fall deep asleep. This way she can go party with her friends.
“She gave him the tramadol and locked the baby inside the house. She returned home this morning only to find out the baby died as a result of the hard drugs she gave him.
“Likomba inhabitants descended on her and got her well beaten. Forces of law and order intervened and as of now, the girl is in detention. The baby has been buried. May the soul of the innocent baby rest in peace.”
