She alleged that the accused had hit the two-year-old boy’s head on the wall before smashing it with a stone and thereafter dumped the body in the pit toilet when she realised he was dead.

“The accused claimed her act was that of vengeance because she had lost her womb following several abortions from pregnancies due to her amorous affair with the father of the deceased,” Mrs Omisakin, a police sergeant,  said.
