In what might appear as an act of wickedness, a 28-year-old woman identified as Blessing Ochonogor, made the decision to dump her baby in an orphanage and move in with her 4th husband.
According to reports, a 28-year-old woman identified as Blessing Ochonogor, left her husband's home while he was in jail, and moved in with a man who became her 4th husband, while also dumping her baby in an orphanage in Abuja.
Blessing who had two children with her 34-year-old live-in lover and jail returnee, Paul Jubril, was accused of killing one of the children before heading off to marry another man.

Paul had returned from the Suleja Prisons about two weeks ago, only to discover that Blessing had taken off with their two children Ifeoma and Peter, to an unknown destination.
On further investigations, it was discovered that Blessing had taken their daughter Ifeoma, to an orphanage, where she lied to them that the child was an orphan. It was later discovered that little Ifeoma was already carrying HIV.
Upon discovering her HIV status, officials of the orphanage returned Ifeoma to Blessing, but she was said to have died soon after as she wasn't undergoing any treatment.
Speaking to the Sun, Paul said:
“I went to Suleja prison. When I came back in January 2017, I couldn’t find my wife and two kids. It was later I heard that my daughter Ifeoma was at an orphanage home at Arab Road, Kubwa Abuja.
I remember we had a misunderstanding in 2015 but I didn’t know she would pack out of the house with our two children, Peter Smith who is seven years old and Ifeoma who is two years and three months
“I have to report the case at Kubwa phase 4 police station Abuja. I didn’t believe that my child could die of HIV. When I was going to prison in December 2016, my child was in good health. I don’t know why my child will die of HIV. I don’t have HIV, likewise, my seven years old son, Peter Smith.
My child is now at the mortuary at Kubwa General Hospital. Before I bury my child, I am still insisting to know what killed her. I want to know the cause of death of my child. It is Blessing who is responsible for the death of my child.”
Meanwhile when Blessing was contacted, she gave her reasons for moving out:
“Whenever I have a quarrel with my boyfriend, he used to beat me to a state of coma. When I couldn’t bear it anymore, I packed out of the house to sleep in an uncompleted building for three days. I deceived them that the parents of the child are dead. It’s true, I didn’t go there to check my child, and I went only once. It was frustration that prompted me to take the child to orphanage home. When life was so difficult for me, I had to marry another man."
Suddenly, the orphanage home called me that the child I brought to them was ill. I refused to go there initially but later I went and took the child to Gwarinpa General Hospital and they diagnosed her of HIV and we were referred to the National Hospital but in the process the baby died on December 2016”
My Father and Mother are not living together. There is nobody I can handover my child to when I was in predicament. Since I am no longer with my boyfriend, he has threatened to kill me. Since the death of my child, my boyfriend has been accusing me of killing our child with HIV.
It is not possible to kill my own daughter. When life is so difficult for me, I have to marry another man. My boyfriend didn’t give us rest of mind since he came back from prison. My boyfriend has frustrated my life and I am not going back to his house again.”
Meanwhile the FCT Police Commissioner, Mr. Mohammed Mustapha has promised that Paul and Blessing will b encouraged to settle and also bury their baby that they abandoned in the mortuary.
