An unidentified lady has been arrested for allegedly killing her baby after giving him tramadol to enable him to sleep deeply so she can go clubbing with friends.
The incident reportedly happened last night in Likomba, Tiko, South-West region of Cameroon
According to reports, the young mother who wanted to go have some night’s fun with her friends decided to give her few months old baby tramadol.
She locked him alone in the house and went out to the club with her friends but returned the next morning to find the lifeless body of her infant.
She has been arrested by the police after residents mobbed her over the death of the baby.
The caption which accompanied the suspect and her baby’s lifeless body reads: “This lady you see here committed an abomination last night in Likomba, Tiko. Despite having a newborn baby of a 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.
