Cameroonian police have reportedly arrested an unidentified lady whose child died after she allegedly gave tramadol to the baby and then went clubbing.
According to reports, the mother, who wanted to go out for the night with her friends, decided to give tramadol to her baby, who was only a few months old.
The incident was alleged to have happened in the Likombo neighborhood of Tiko in Cameroon’s South-West region.
It was also revealed that the mother had locked the baby in the house after giving the drug to him before leaving.
When she returned, she discovered the baby lifeless where she had left him and immediately raised an alarm.
It was also reported that the residents of the neighborhood rushed and beat her up over the death of the baby before the cops arrived and carried her away.
The caption of the post from the Instagram user who shared the story reads,
“This lady you see here committed an abomination last night in Likomba, Tiko.
Despite having a newborn baby only a few months old, she wanted to go clubbing with friends.
“The innocent child was the only thing standing in her way because she couldn’t take him to the club. So, what did this girl do?
“She decided to give him tramadol so he could fall asleep. This way, she can go out and party with her friends.
“She gave him tramadol and locked the baby in the house.
When she got home this morning, she discovered that the baby had died as a result of the hard drugs she had given him.
“The people of Likomba descended on her and severely beat her.
The girl is currently detained after law enforcement intervened. The child has been laid to rest. May the innocent baby’s soul rest in peace.”
