Nurse guilty

Date published: 17 December 2012

A nurse has been found guilty of the manslaughter of a four–week–old baby, who bled to death after a botched home circumcision in Oldham.

Goodluck Caubergs died the day after Grace Adeleye carried out the procedure without anaesthetic and using only a pair of scissors, forceps and olive oil, a trial at Manchester Crown Court heard.

On Friday a jury of eight women and four men found Adeleye (67) guilty of manslaughter by gross negligence by a majority verdict of 10 to 2 after deliberating for over eight hours.

The Royal Oldham Hospital was only a mile and a half from the family home in Chadderton but by the time an ambulance was called the infant could not be saved, the court heard.

Sentencing was adjourned to a later date, and Adeleye, of Sarnia Court, Salford, was granted bail.


This woman claimed to have carried out thousands of these 'operations'. Is it not time that legislation was introduced as in Germany to prevent the mutilation of babies without their consent ?
The woman clearly hadn't got the first clue as to the needs for a sterile evironment, yet she was allowed to practice as a nurse in the NHS! If only we could reserve such people to care for / treat members of the Labour party we'd soon see a change in their immigration policies!

I wonder if a deportation order will be included in the sentence?

Deported back to Salford?

It's time this disgusting practice was made illegal. Boys should be at least 14 years old and then decide for themselves whether or not they want it. Wrapped up in religious mumbo-jumbo it is not the sort of thing that should happen in a modern country in the 21st Century.

God wants people to have parts of their penis cut off, could you allow anything more ridiculous to continue if you tried it's the age of quantum physics not Camelot and crusades.

This is at worst genital mutilation and at worst totally pointless, how can any parent back this barbaric practice in this day and age it belongs in the stone age !!!

deportation or exclusion from society is not the answer.we are dealing with cultural beliefs here and evidently the nurse in question felt she had to adhere to the beliefs of her own culture and religion.was there a satisfactory backup service she could have resorted to where skilled surgeons could have carried out the operation?before one can pass judgement, all the facts have to be seen in the light of day.
