Nigerian midwife who caused baby's death walks free from court

The 67 year old Nigerian born UK-based midwife who caused a four-week-old baby to bleed to death in a botched home circumcision operation walked free from court a few days back.

Grace Adeleye, who was paid  £100 to perform the operation on Goodluck Caubergs using a traditional African method known as 'clamp and cut, carried it out without anaesthetic, using only a pair of scissors, forceps and olive oil.

It went drastically wrong leaving the child with a serious wound and causing him to bleed to death.

Adeleye was found guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence after a trial at Manchester Crown Court and was given a 21 month suspended jail term last week.
