Residents of Brikama Jamisa in Kombo Central, West Coast Region, woke up Saturday morning and got an extremely unpleasant news of the incident of a beheaded newborn baby boy believed to be dumped in the streets by his mother.
According to sources, the baby is believed to have been beheaded by dogs who were seen to have dragged the baby from a bushy dump site.
Neighbours came to the rescue of the remains of the lifeless little boy as the mother’s whereabouts are not yet known.
“The mother’s identification is not yet known as of now, but our team of CIDs have been working on the ground working to find out the parent’s contact and identification. The CID has contacted the Brikama Health Centre and residents in Jamisa for health records of the women who gave birth within the week as well as any suspicious behaviour of anyone within Jamisa or its neighbouring communities,” a police source told Mamos Tv .
Efforts to reach the Police PRO, ASP Lamin Njie proved futile at the time of publication. We will bring you more information about the gruesome infanticide as the police unravels the incident.
