A man was arrested after killing his baby after cheating and impregnating his wife’s teenage sister.

47-year-old Moses Otimba of Nigeria, was arrested on charges of murder after killing his baby to hide the fact that he was cheating on his wife.

According to Bayelsa State Police Command, Otimba had an affair with his pregnant wife’s younger sister.

Otimba got the sister, 18-year-old Joy Matthew, pregnant. Throughout the pregnancy, her family demanded to know who the father was, but Matthew did not disclose the information to anyone.

Otimba said that after the teenager gave birth to their son, they decided to get rid of him in order to hide their affair.

Otimba claimed that the teen mother consented and after leaving the hospital, she handed him the 5-day-old baby to do with him as he saw fit.

Otimba went to a river, where he held the newborn underwater for a few minutes, until he drowned. He then left the baby in a shallow grave, according to police.

The father told police that he cried as he killed his son, but he felt that he had no other choice as he was afraid of his wife Glory, and his mother-in-law.

When Matthew came home without the baby, her mother demanded answers. The 18-year-old woman told her mother what had occurred, and Otimba was arrested.
