A woman has been arrested for killing a little baby girl. The kid was lying lifeless on the pile of bricks at Wadata area of Makurdi, Benue State, Nigeria.


The baby was crying uncontrollably demanding to see her mother who was said to have left her father (Abdulrahman) a few months ago.

It was gathered that the child’s mother had separated from her father.  He moved on and married another woman, who is now suspected to be behind her murder.

Confirming the recovery of the corpse of the three-year-old baby girl in an uncompleted building, the Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Moses Yamu, said that investigation was still ongoing as to whether she was responsible for the killing of the baby or not.

He said:

“We received a report this morning that the corpse of a little girl of about three years, later identified as Khadija Abdulrahman, was seen in an uncompleted building at Wadata near the bank of River Benue.

“A female suspect has been arrested in connection with the case and investigation has also commenced,” he concluded.
