A proprietor’s dogs have dismembered and eaten a two=year old baby, who was brought in to commence schooling in the eastern part of Nigeria.
Other pupils in the school located at Amokpo, Umuanunwa, Nteje, in Oyi Local Government Area of Anambra State, who witnessed the tragic event, were immediately withdrawn to avoid further disaster.

As at the time of this horrific incident, it was also gathered that teachers in the school premises were no where to be found nor hardly any non-academic staff present.
