A young lady on Thursday was reported to have poison her two babies to death using rat poison. The two children who are said to be around two and one year old died in their sleep after the rat poison was administered to them by their mother.

According to a close neighbor who revealed to news men that the woman’s action did not come to him as a surprise said that, the woman has always hinted on killing her little children someday because she considered them as being a burden to her.

“She has always told us about her plans to poison her children but we didn’t take it serious because she is mentally okay”, he said.

“She rushed out of the room after killing her children to tell us what she has done”.

The neighbor who gave his name as Eric to News Men also said that had it not been for the intervention of the police, the resident of Tema New Town would have set the lady ablaze.
