The Commandant said that the suspect alleged that she was impregnated by a man who ordered her to dump the baby.

Gidado said the man has also been arrested, adding that “he confessed to committing the offence”.

He said that medical examination conducted at General Hospital, Hadejia, revealed that the suspect gave birth to the baby.

He stated that efforts were being made to recover the baby, which he said “might be dead by now due to the hours it spent” in the toilet.

The commandant said that the suspects would be charged to court after investigation had been concluded. [NAN]
