Graphic" Parents Abandon 70 Corpses of Newborn Babies in Enugu

The Executive Secretary, National Human Rights Commission, Prof. Bem Angwe, has said that the commission would investigate reported case of abandoned corpses of babies in a hospital in Enugu.

Angwe, who stated this on Wednesday in Abuja while speaking with leaders of the National Council of Women Societies (NCWS) who visited him in his office, said that mothers involved in the abandonment of the corpses would be prosecuted.
“We received information that about 70 corpses of babies were abandoned in a hospital in Enugu.
“At the moment, we are investigating; when we get to know the identities of these parents who abandoned their dead babies, we will prosecute them.“The commission will definitely identify these mothers who have denied their children a decent burial and ensure that they are punished to serve as a deterrent to others,” he said.
He pointed out that the act of the mothers offended the “very core and dictates of human rights” and must not be allowed to continue, Vanguard reports.
