Rukayya’s mother, Maimuna Adam, told newsmen that her daughter was taken away from her when she was asleep in the midnight of May 27, 2020. The girl was later abandoned with blood covering her genital.
“The incident occurred on Wednesday 27 of last month when suddenly I woke up around 3am and found that my baby was missing. I checked my phone which was also close to me before I slept, but it was also missing,” the mother narrated.
She explained that both men and women of the village went out in search of the baby on foot and motorcycles, and eventually found the child in an uncompleted building bleeding.
“She was found lying in the building with her pants kept aside. Everywhere across her private part was blood and then we rushed her to the hospital,” she said.
The three-month-old baby received surgical treatment at Jos University Teaching Hospital as a result of the incident.
