A mother was forced to remove her dead baby from a shallow grave after she buried him alive to please a man.

Disturbing videos and photos show the mother holding the deceased 3-month-old baby without showing any signs of emotion.

The mother was then arrested for his murder and the baby was given a proper burial.

According to police in Togo, the 20-year-old woman, who has not been named, met a rich man and began dating him.

The woman wanted to marry the rich man but he made it clear that he did not want to have children. In order to please the man, the mother dug a shallow grave and placed her son inside.

She then covered the grave with sand and left her child to die. Her crimes came to light when her family members repeatedly questioned her about the whereabouts of the boy.

After running out of excuses, the mother finally admitted to her crime. Videos show police and a large group of people gathering to watch as the mother removed the baby from his grave.
