A child of barely one year old has died after the mother drugged him to sleep so as to go clubbing with friends.
The incident was said to have happened in Likombo area of Tiko in the South-West region of Cameroon.
The report says the young mother decided to go clubbing with her friends, but the little child was her only stumbling block.
The Instagram user, who shared the story with pictures of the lady and the dead baby, said she gave the child tramadol to drink, laid him in bed, shot the door and went out to have fun. But on return, she found the child irresponsive.
It was further revealed that the residents of the community descended on 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 her 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.”Follow us on social media
