MDB on June 15th reported the pathetic story, with the mother of the victim, Maimuna Adam revealing that her baby went missing midnight of May 27th.
The woman said;
The incident occurred on Wednesday 27 of last month (May) 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.
She explained people in the village went out in search of the baby and eventually found her child in an uncompleted building bleeding from her vagina.
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.
The victim was taken to the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) where she received surgical treatment.
