It was gath­ered that Abu and the other woman, Bilk­isu have not been in good terms for a long time.

It was also gath­ered that all ef­forts by the hus­band and neigh­bours to set­tle the women failed. Wit­nesses said the in­ci­dent oc­curred dur­ing an ar­gu­ment. They al­leged that dur­ing the quar­rel, Abu grabbed the baby from his mother’s back and smashed him against the wall.

The state Po­lice Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer, DSP Lawal Ab­dul­lahi, said the ac­cused is po­lice cus­tody and that she would be charged to court as soon as in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the mat­ter is con­cluded.
