Mother Bathes Baby With Soup

The shrill cry of a two- year- old baby girl on

Sunday evening attracted a crowd to a house at

Ewukorpe Village near Adjei Kotoku in Ghana.

There, to their utmost surprise , they found

Adzo Numawor , the baby 's mother, bathing her

with steaming soup.

The astonished crowd wrestled the baby from

the mother only to realize that she had

suffered severe burns on the buttocks and the

private apart.

Kodzo Nubueke, the girl 's father , angered by

the harm caused by his wife to the child , gave

her hefty slaps in the face before he was

restrained by the crowd.

An eye – witness, Frank Gamordzie, told The

Spectator that Adzo 's husband killed a fowl that

Sunday evening for soup.

But as Adzo was drunk and could not prepare

the soup , the husband started to do so.

While cooking, he received a visitor who he

later went to see off . Before , then, he drew

Adzo 's attention to the soup on the fire and

also asked her to bathe the child .

Adzo , who was said to be heavily drunk,

staggered to the kitchen, took the boiling soup,

she considered to be water, poured it into a

bucked and started to bathe the girl with it .

The assemblyman for Akotoshie Electoral Area ,

Yevu Maclean , confirmed the story and

expressed concern about the drinking habit of

some people in the community.

He advised them against excessive drinking

saying alcohol besides, affecting their health ,

also impoverishes them .

The assemblyman advised them to invest what

they spent on drinking alcohol in their

children 's education and welfare.
