According to PM News, a neighbour raised the alarm after spotting the mother-of-seven behaving suspiciously.

But Balogun opened the sack and found the baby's body inside.
It was gathered that different men have been visiting her home after the death of her husband three years ago.

Mujidat said that she delivered the child herself because she found it easy. She did not reveal the circumstances surrounding the baby's death.
A picture taken at the scene shows Mujidat holding the naked and blooded baby in her lap.
She remains in police custody.
