    Nigerian mother who drowned her kids in a well to undergo a mental evaluation

    According to reports, a Nigerian woman who drowned her children in a well in Osun state will be evaluated mentally.

    On Tuesday, November 2, the woman was detained after telling neighbours who inquired about her children’s whereabouts that she drowned them “because their glory had been stolen.”

    Yemisi Opalola, an Osun police spokesman, said the woman’s lack of contrition led to the decision to put her to a mental examination since the police do not want to work on assumptions.

    “It is pathetic that no one saw the culprit when she perpetrated the act on Monday night.

    “The culprit, who lives around Oke Baale area, Osogbo, was said to be having some kind of mental problem.

    “She was said to have been deported and it is assumed that, maybe the deportation affected her mentally.

    “When interrogated, she said she did it; that she drowned her daughters and her owning to the crime without remorse gives suspicion to the speculations that she might be having some mental problem.

    “She is still with the state CID and the bodies of her daughters (aged five and eight) were recovered yesterday (Wednesday), with the help of fire service.

    “It took serious efforts from Tuesday to retrieve the dead bodies from the well because the well was filled with water, but the bodies of the girls have been deposited at the mortuary.”

    The woman’s family, according to Opalola, should have gathered around her and taken her to a mental health facility as soon as they realized she was mentally ill. She went on to say that this might have prevented the catastrophe.

      they really need to evaluate her cos it seems very unlikely that a mother should do such to her own children
