The corpse of a two year old Chikamso Nwocha, who was declared missing by her parents, has been found inside a borrow pit after three days search at Irete in Owerri West local government area of Imo State. The child, who was the second baby of her father, was discovered to have lost her way to the house after she followed her mother to urinate outside though without her knowledge.
The incident occurred on May 25 around 2am and after a thorough search by both the parents and other neighbours the whereabouts of the baby was still unknown.
However, the news of the ugly incident attracted the attention of villagers as they converged at the borrow pit where the child’s corpse was found.
Narrating the story to Daily Trust, father of the baby Lucky Nwocha said his daughter had gone outside the house with his wife to urinate without his wife knowing that her daughter went outside with her.
When the wife eventually returned to the house, she quickly noticed that the daughter was not lying down with her sister inside the house, and it was at that time she started searching for her in every corner of the house and the compound.
