Abandoned twin babies eaten up by pigs in Nasarawa

Two babies have been eaten up by pigs in the masaka area of Nasarawa state. Residents of the area confirmed that the two babies were abandoned in the refuse dump. Only one corpse with severe wounds on the face was found in the dunghill as at the time of filing this report while one was taken away by the pigs

A resident, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said people who reside around the area where the dump is located confirmed that the babies were brought alive to the spot.

He said,

“We believe that the babies were left at the dump on Monday evening or Tuesday morning. When we got to the dump, pigs had already eaten one of the babies and escaped with the corpse. Some people staying close to the dump told us that there were indications that the kids were alive when they were abandoned.

“There has been pandemonium in our area. People have been trooping to the dump when they get the information that newborn twins were abandoned there. Residents, who were at the scene of the incident, rained curses on the person that dumped the babies. They could have taken the babies to an orphanage or to a government’s shelter, not at our dump to be eaten up by pigs.”

A youth in the community, who gave his name as Garba Julius, said the community is already investigating the case alongside the police and that the parent of the babies will soon be nabbed.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Nasarawa State Police Command, DSP John Kennedy, however, said the command had yet to receive information on the incident.

He said,

“The command has not been informed of the incident that happened at Jeun Madaki in the Masaka Police Station bus stop area of Nasarawa State.”
