Despite attempts to rush the boy Sunny Dickens Anjichi to the hospital, he succumbed to the injuries at Shalom Hospital. Autopsy results conducted on the boy confirmed injuries inflicted by the mother.
“The boy, Sunny Dickens Anjichi, was rushed to the nearby Shalom Hospital, but unfortunately breathed his last as doctors and nurses made frantic efforts to save his life.
It wasn’t until an autopsy was conducted at the hospital’s mortuary this morning on the request of the boy’s father, that police uncovered the mother’s lies. They discovered that the boy had actually died of severe injuries inflicted on his body.
Pathologists established that the minor had severe bruises on the lower limbs. There was also severe bleeding on the upper limbs, the arms, thighs and the head. A distraught Dick Anjichi Ndubukhile, the boy’s father, and our detectives witnessed the post-mortem.
Armed with the findings, detectives visited Ngewa Apartment and questioned the mother and the caretaker. It was established that the child had been savagely attacked by the mother over an unknown issue.
The woman was swiftly arrested & placed in custody awaiting her fate in court. She’ll face murder charges once investigations are completed.” Said DCI
