A mother has been arrested for attempting to kill her sick child, using Sniper, an insecticide. 

Benjamin Hundeyin, spokesperson of the Lagos police command, said the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba, reported the incident to the police on Friday.

Hundeyin said the chief security officer at the hospital reported to the police that the mother brought her one-year-and-seven month-old daughter to the hospital for treatment.

He added that the mother confessed to a doctor at the hospital that she gave the child Sniper to drink on Sunday when her convulsion was not abating.

“The mother said she gave the liquid to her child so she could rest from her excessive convulsions,” Hundeyin said.

“Detectives were immediately dispatched to the hospital where they met the baby receiving treatment.


“The mother has been taken in for investigation after the child had received treatment.”
