According to Facebook user, Chigozie Effe, mother of the bady boy died while giving birth to him. The late mother was a native of Bassa Kuomo, one of the villages in Abuja, which allegedly still practices the killing of twins as well burying children whose mother died in the process of giving birth to them.

Travails of a One week old baby
The joy of every nursing mother is to behold to countenance of her bundle of joy at birth but when she dies while bringing life it raises so much concerns and in other climes the child is seen as bad luck.
